Ambassador Dennis Hankins is pleased to announce the strengthening of cooperation between the United States and Guinea in the area of conflict mitigation and management through dialogue, reconciliation and peacebuilding. The U.S. government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), launched the Cultural Cohesion for Peace and Prosperity (2C2P) project on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. USAID Mission Director Barbara Dickerson spoke at the launch, which was also attended by Guinean officials as well as implementing partners.
Catholic Relief Services (CRS), with the Organization Catholic pour la Promotion Humaine (OCPH), and West African Network for Peace-building (WANEP), is implementing the 2-year Cultural Cohesion for Peace and Prosperity Project, funded through USAID. This project will instill a culture of social cohesion in seven communities – three communes in Conakry (Matam, Matoto and Ratoma) and four prefectures of Upper Guinea (Kankan, Siguiri, Kouroussa and Dinguiraye).
