The director of a school in Guinea-Bissau funded by Fresno nonprofit West African Vocation Schools (WAVS) will speak on Feb. 22 at a Fresno event.
WAVS Executive Director Chris Collins said that school director Almamo Danfa was selected by the U.S. State Department as an emerging leader in Guinea-Bissau, one of the smallest and poorest countries in the world. Danfa will spend three weeks meeting with government and civic leaders across the country before visiting Fresno.
Danfa will speak at 6 p.m. at The Well Community Church’s Fig Garden Campus. He will discuss the WAVS program in his country and its possible expansion beyond.
The WAVS school provides training in computer basics, auto mechanics, welding, French and English in Guinea-Bissau.
