Guinea-Bissau with West African Vocational Schools (WAVS)

Guinea Bissau
1.7 million people in Guinea Bissau

Language: Portugese

West African Vocational Schools (WAVS) is a Christian non-profit based in Fresno that works hand-in-hand with local leaders in Guinea-Bissau, one of the world’s smallest and poorest countries, to equip women and men with life-changing job skills so they can transform their communities.

This Exposure Trip team joined in with believers at the WAVS school in Canchungo, Guinea-Bissau, using their skills in teaching, music, computer networking, video and photography.

The team met with local men and women leaders, journalists, and villagers to hear their perspective on the God-glorifying aspects within their culture and country, and the areas that need His transformative work. The team returned with personal stories of triumph and challenge to inspire others into a missional life locally and globally.
