Post 15: The most productive day!

This update is long over due. My second week in Guinea with Forrest and Fode Lavia was very productive and eventful! I am so excited to share the progress that has been made on the land and what a cultural and connecting experience ir was for me. Fode and I traveled to the Forecariah on Thursday, Dec. 28th. It was wonderful to see all the supplies we had already purchased laid out in neat, organized piles along the east side of our land. Fode A. and Seni have been working hard to make sure work continues. Dakino has also done a great job of traveling back and forth with and without us to maintain communication with Fode A. and Seni.

There is so much more to share about our progress and our 3rd annual KALOUM DJEMBE festival that took place the following Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned! Pictures of the land will be posted on If you want to see photos from the land blessing ceremony, visit They will be posted in a few days.

There is still so much work to do. Forrest, Fode, all the locally employed workers building on our land, the local materials suppliers and I are all thankful for the financial support everyone has provided so far. Please join those who have already donated and support our cause here on GoFundMe or via our ‘fee free’ donations link at
