An Official Launch of LVE and an Action Plan

Representative of the Minister of Pre-University and Literacy Education respectively. Three activities characterized the day: 1)The presentation of the LVE approach which provoked debate and participation of participants; 2) Signature of a collaboration agreement between CAVEG and the Community Life Association (AVICOM) based in Dubréka in the framework of the implementation of the activities of the Living Values ​​Guinea Program in the Region of Lower Guinea; and 3) Establishment of an expanded Living Values ​​Guinea steering committee, to define the orientations and follow-up of the activities of the living values ​​program Guinea, to ensure transparency.

Yombouno Abdel Tiekoura, the President of CAVEG, sent a report with a proposal for a three-year action plan. Should you be interested in materially contributing to making values education available at schools, for children, educators and parents in Guinea Conakry, please let Mr. Yombouno know. Below, you will find further information contained within his report.

Context and Justification

In today's Africa, struck by crime, armed conflict, common diseases, Ebola, AIDS, and poverty, education for values ​​will become one of the most powerful weapons to help people regain their pride, dignity and the art of living together again.

In Guinea, the need for values-based education is felt at a time when more and more children, teachers and parents are seeing the rise of incivility and violence. Without being necessarily prepared, teachers are confronted, in the exercise of their functions, with the consequences of a certain disintegration of the family or social unit.

Human values ​​such as tolerance, respect, freedom, honesty, peace, love, humility, cooperation, simplicity, freedom, unity and happiness constitute, in their expression the most universal, the foundation of social peace and progress.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, values ​​can be a source of hope by offering children and adults new perspectives, both personal and social.

It is in this situation that the Living Values ​​Educational (LVE) Program, in partnership with the Education Department, will put a Teaching / Learning process at the disposal of teachers.

In order to enable the actors to appropriate values ​​and integrate them into teaching / learning practices in Guinea, it is essential to equip teachers with methods enabling them to apply practices in line with these values. It is in this logic that this first workshop must be held so that we can lay the foundations for a process of learning and exercising the values ​​promoted by LVE.

To promote the integration of the values ​​promoted by Living Values ​​Education into the teaching and learning system of the Educational System of Guinea for Quality Education.

A strategic action plan, resulting from the meeting of the steering committee and CAVEG held in Conakry from 2 to 4 December 2016, has been finalized and validated by both parties. Each activity is subordinated to the development of a reference term for budgeting.


  1. Integrate the teaching of values ​​in the Guinean school system;
  2. Establish a system of in-service training of teacher educators Living Values;
  3. Edit manuals and teaching materials for Living Values ​​for the Guinean school system.

Specifically, they would like to proceed with:

  1. Education Awareness Campaign for the LVE Approach in four regions;
  2. Training of trainers on the approach to LVE;
  3. World Education Campaign;
  4. Equipment in tools, materials and teaching aids for the popularization of the LVE approach in four regions;
  5. Choice and identification of experimental LVE Schools;
  6. Strengthening the institutional and organizational capacities of the associated NGOs and the local steering committee with the LVE A​approach;
  7. Teacher training for LVE and teaching values;
  8. Local training of educators and parents in the Living Values ​​Approach Education;
  9. Finalization of reading books on Values, Primary in Guinea CAVEG Conakry;
  10. Monitoring and evaluation of the activities carried out by CAVEG ALIVE Conakry in the regions.

Two Steps Forward

Club Avenir des Enfants de Guinee has an ambitious proposal to establish and/or support ongoing community schools throughout Guinea, where LVE would be integrated in the teacher training and curriculum. As Abdel Yombouno, the President of this ALIVE Associate, noted, “The country's instability, lack of political will, financial and logistical resources and reliable communication are challenges. He and the LVE team are proceeding with workshops for colleagues, and strategies to involve partners. They wish to begin by creating a local school for early learning in Forécariah, 100 km from the capital. They have submitted LVE manuals to National Education which are adapting to the Guinean realities. These have been approved by National Education. Abdel and his colleagues are very committed to positively affecting young people and adults.


Exhibition of 12 Values

The ALIVE Associate in Guinea Conakry organized an exhibition of 12 values for the new members of the NGO in March 2013. The photos were taken in the offices of the NGO, CAVEG in Conakry. Regarding activities, we are exploring funding with hopes of training teachers in the LVE methodology soon.

  • Après les deux présentions des questions de précisions ont été posées à savoir :
  • Y a-t-il une relation entre living values Guinée et les autres pays ?
  • Quelle approche ou stratégie pour explorer les différentes valeurs aux apprenants ?
  • Quelles sont les activités déjà menées par living values Guinée ?
  • Comment le comité technique de coordination LV Guinée sera composé ?
  • Comment trouver les ressources financières pour la mise en œuvre des activités ?

Dans les débats, toutes ces questions ont trouver des réponses satisfaisantes, dans la mesure où les objectifs du programme living values sont en adéquation avec ceux de la Direction Nationale de l’Education Civique, la compréhension a été facile car pour les cadres du département, l’Education aux valeurs n’est pas nouveaux dans l’enseignement apprentissage en Guinée, Il est néanmoins très pertinent pour l’équipe de rechercher de nouvelles approches et stratégies novatrices pour l’Education aux valeurs dans notre système éducatif guinéen.

En commun accord, les prochains travaux vont consister à :

  • L’élaboration du document de convention de partenariat
  • L’élaboration d’un plan d’action,
