What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am passionate about our natural resources and my family. I am married with 6 children.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My hero is Nelson Mandela. He is a courageous man who dedicated his life for human rights. Without liberty or human rights, people cannot develop their own country.

Short Description Of Project

I am the chief administrator for the Kindia region of Water & Forest. I manage the classified forests and give technical trainings to our staff. I am in charge of informing and training the community about sustainability, how to prevent forest fires and creating tree nurseries.

We also regulate hunting permits to protect the fauna, fine illegal tree cutters who log in protected forest regions and we reforest degraded areas during the rainy season.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

A computer would help us to write reports of our activities on the terrain. It would be helpful in compiling our statistics and in organizing our documents as well. We would also be able to learn more techniques for our service and search for training conference opportunities.

What Languages do you speak?

French, Sousou, Malinké
