My Name is Mariama

I am a 16 year old girl

Mariama and family live in the area of Bafata. Bafata is a tropical region in the country of Guinea Bissau. The majority of the population lives in zinc-roofed houses built with adobe bricks without water piping or electricity. The region’s enrollment rate remains low and girls are still the most affected with only 46.9% in the school system against 52.2% for boys. Children with disabilities have no access to education due to lack of adequate school infrastructure and parental support. The lack of accessibility to health system and the high rate of illiteracy, especially among women, coupled with a weak financial capacity have contributed to a weak demand for primary health care, favoring the use of traditional medicine. Access to potable water remains a problem for the population. Around 50% still drink unsafe water while 41% are deprived from adequate basic sanitation facilities. The activities Plan has been able to carry out since 1995, include the building of infrastructures, teachers’ training, advocacy for child rights, sensitization on health and hygiene, drilling of water points, institutional support to the government, training and support for a better handling of child rights issues and lobbying for legislation on child protection. Bafata is a region full of potentials for a sustainable development and Plan International plays an essential role in this process.

My Name is Jomar

I am a 16 year old boy

Jomar and family live in a rural community. Agriculture is the livelihood of most people. Rice, corn and coconuts are the major crops. A growing number of small-scale farmers have started to venture into livestock and poultry production to increase income. Those living along the coast engage in fishing as a source of income. Public transportation to the capital city and from village to village is available through habal-habal (motorcycles for hire), buses, or multi-cabs. During the rainy season, roads become impassable and people resort to horseback as an alternative. Medical facilities are limited. There are shortages of supplies, medical equipment and staff. Many rely on unprotected rivers and streams for water resulting in water-borne illnesses especially among children. Schools are in disrepair. More teaching materials, school supplies and textbooks are needed. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.
