Community is everything. At URBOND, we actively work to eliminate barriers to education within communities, such as gender disparities and other vulnerable circumstances, like financial hardship.

We work hard to ensure parents within communities are aware of the importance of child education. And we actively support parents with gaining relevant skills to improve both their employment and entrepreneurial prospects. This means households can better afford the costs of educating their children.

Ultimately, we work hard to target the root causes which drive many families to keep their children out of school. This is often putting them to work in order to support the household financially. Our work in the community is therefore vital to the education programme, because if the community is on board, and parents are on board, then more focus is placed on education and bettering prospects for the future.

And by donating to URBOND today, you can help our team drive this message into the communities who need to hear it. We really need your support. We really value your support. And together, we can make sure no child misses out on the education they need.

Doumba story


“I reached a point in my marriage where I did not know whether to stay with or leave my husband”.

Domba was married for 18 years to a bully, there had been times when she was close to causing herself harm and even contemplating taking her life. Domba divorced her husband in 2015 when her little son Moussa Tenguino was only 3 years old. As a result of the divorce, Domba was kicked out of the family home and moved to the capital (Conakry) to find a job to support herself and her son (Moussa). Fortunately, Domba was able to get a job but it wasn’t sustainable for her to pay for their accommodation, food and to send Moussa to school.

“Education is very important to me, I did not have the opportunity to go to school as a came from a poor family but I would love to send my son Mousa to school.”
