After the Tougué and Koubia phase (in the Labé region), project 224 “ObjectiveBac2022” puts its suitcase in the forest region. It is in the prefecture of Macenta that 35 volunteer teachers will share their knowledge this year with the candidates for the baccalaureate in 2022. Aim, to correct the low admission rate recorded in this locality in 2021 and arouse the desire in schooling among young students, learned a reporter from Guineaematin.com this Saturday, May 7, 2022.
Distributed to 6 high schools, including 4 in downtown Macenta, candidates for the 2022 baccalaureate session in the prefecture of Macenta (region of the administration of N’Zérékoré) will benefit, from May 30 to June 17, 2022, from with the technical and educational support of young teachers that allowed them to raise their level of learning in the hope of better ranking in various national examinations.
Mohamed Aly Condé, journalist and general coordinator of the 224 #ObjectifBac project explained the reasons for choosing Macenta, before announcing the specifics of this third edition.
“We chose Macenta because last year, in the administrative region of N’Zérékoré, Macenta was the last prefecture of the six. The prefecture presented 2,400 and some candidates; and, only 99 students were declared admitted to the baccalaureate. So we believe there is difficulty at this level. But, as every year, our choice has to do with the last prefecture in a region or the last region of 7 to go there. This year, therefore, we have mobilized more than 35 volunteer teachers to revise our fellow baccalaureate candidates near Macenta. This, for more than 15 days, is to see what can change as in previous years.
The particularity for this year is that around Macenta, we intend to organize a petition in favor of education. We believe we are taking advantage of all the experiences we have had since 2019 entering the country. We can invite technical partners, school friends, the school environment and everyone who can contribute something for a positive change in this sector. Let’s gather them and explain to them what we see inside the country and above all draw their attention to it so that everyone can do what they can to change the situation because not everyone is shiny inside. Sometimes we have the impression that decisions are limited to Conakry students. But, inside, they’re so much more. However, they study under extremely difficult conditions. You can’t imagine that in the 21st century students are still studying under these conditions. However, I think there is not enough information around the school and that each of us can be involved in providing this information there to influence decision makers ”, he invites.
After staying in the prefectures of Tougué and Koubia, Mohamed Aly and his group made a small observation of the education sector in these two localities in central Guinea. This is why they called on the authorities to help the young students.
“We went to Koubia last year and to Tougué where we were involved. You know, last year we had a special program called #KoubiaObjectifBEPC. Koubia who scored 0% in BEPC still deserves another attention. So, we mobilized volunteers to go to this level. I think we have a small result. We have more than 40 claims out of less than 200 candidates for BEPC in this prefecture. However, at the baccalaureate level, whether in Koubia or Tougué, I think the problem is worse than what was presented to us. We did what we could; but, the conditions under which students study there, the conditions under which they prepare for exams, these ’are unacceptable conditions and we can fully understand if they were not accepted for the baccalaureate or they were not even accepted this year. Since in Koubia and Tougué it is a structural problem, I think the state should exist there, especially in this sector, ”he explained.
Participating in this humanitarian project since 2019, the leaders of this initiative of national interest invite technical and financial colleagues working in the education sector and anyone with good will to support their project to get Guinea’s education out of this situation.
“Since 2019, we’ve been operating in the same way. It’s the goodwill that brings us support. We’ve never had an institution ask us what budget we want and what funds are after. These are the individuals, the media covering our press conferences, the nationals in the different prefectures where we always go agree to give us what they can according to what they have to facilitate our mission. So launched the call of these goodwill for this year again but to all who are observing us from different institutions because our goal is that one day it will be institutionalized, that we will no longer resort to informally, we will not have to wait until the last minute to mobilize people to come to the prefecture “, concluded this journalist from Djoma Media Group.
Note that unlike previous editions, there is a projection of video lessons in the revision foyers.
