T?KA Supports People with Disabilities in Guinea

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) provided materials to Wakilare, a group of people with disabilities who make a living by producing handmade slippers, bags, and shoes in the division of Kaloum in Conakry, the capital of Guinea, and opened a new shop for this group to sell their products.

In his speech at the opening ceremony, Bernard Tamba Teinguiano, leader of the group, said, “When we first started this business, no one believed that we would come this far. Now, as 25 families with disabilities, we make a living by producing handmade slippers, bags, and shoes. TİKA did not only renovated our shop, but also provided machinery and materials to improve our product quality.”

Fatoumata Binta Barry, a person with disability who runs a shop, stated that the interior design that TİKA renovated gave the shop a new look, that sometimes people visited the shop only to see what they were selling, that their sales increased, and that they would ask TİKA for support in opening similar shops in different places in the future.
