We currently implement our Community Empowerment Program (CEP) in 40 communities in four regions of Guinea. The Community Management Committees (CMCs) in the participating villages together form ten federations in order to better support the development initiatives designed at the local level by community members themselves. Over the course of 2013, CMCs in Guinea organized 44 community clean-up days, vaccinated 991 children over three days, registered 306 new births between July and November, and built 637 improved stoves.
