Jean Baptiste Diawara

19 – Kissidougou, Guinea

What Are You Most Passionate About?

Helping others find their way.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My heroes are Priests. When I listen to their teachings I’m inspired to be a helpful and positive person.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

A song by Gaël titled ‘Je Veux n’Être qu’à Toi’ (‘I Don’t Want to Be Anyone But You’).

What project would a laptop help you with?

I am currently working with my mother on a free lunch program with the World Food Programme  and the Department of Education. We support 69 schools right now.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

A computer will help me to support my mother in her role as the focal point of the Free Lunch Program. I help her to manage reports from the schools we lend aid to; but this becomes impossible when my mother is busy with her own work, as we’re currently sharing the one laptop supplied by the WFP.

What do you love about this project?

This free lunch program contributes to the development of the communities where it takes place; I love the see the neighborhoods we help spring to life.

What Languages do you speak?

French, Kissi, Malinké, and Susu.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
