WAVS is a Christian nonprofit that works in Guinea-Bissau to equip women and men with life-changing job skills so they can transform their communities. 


This largely overlooked part of West Africa is one of the smallest and poorest countries in the world. The challenges seems enormous: severe poverty, drug smuggling, human trafficking, an education system in crumbles. Yet Guinea-Bissau and its 1.7 million people long to pull themselves out of poverty. 

They are ready. All they need is the opportunity.
