Mike in Guinea

Mike arrived in Guinea on August 26, 1999, after spending two months in Thiés, Senegal. For his first month in Guinea he resided in the city Mamou (near the center of the country), learning more French, beginning to learn the regional language Pulaar, and training more for his job as a volunteer -- among other things, helping school teachers incorporate environmental education topics into their classes.

In October Mike finally left for his final destination, and was sworn in as a volunteer. He will be spending the next two years in Ditinn Centre in Ditinn Sous-Préfecture, which is in Guinea. It is northwest of Mamou, near Dalaba. (see map of Guinea).
