The SkyFox Limited Guinea office, inaugurated in 2015, is located in the business capital of Conakry, District of Ratoma, Sonfonia Afrikof Market.
SkyFox has been a household name in Guinea since 2015 as a result of the WASH Infrastructure Development Project, for which the company was brought in as a consultant during the implementation of a trans-border biodiversity conservation project called Sustainable Thriving Environment for West Africa Regional Development (STEWARD) funded by USAID West Africa. Its implementing partners were United States Forest Service (USFS) through its International Program, Care International, Mano River Union, AUDER Guinée and Governments of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Côte d’Ivoire
With a strong human resource base, SkyFox Guinea is currently overseeing the implementation of the Integrated Aquaculture and Crop Production Project through the Securing Water For Food (SWFF) grant with about 1,650 farmers directly benefiting from its activities so far. The main target for the office is to reach 11,610 direct and indirect beneficiaries with the SWFF project.
The SWFF Project is being implemented in the Tondon Sous-Prefecture in Dubréka Prefecture. SWFF’s funding partners are USAID, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (MFA-NL), and the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST), who share a common goal of advancing international development through improved access to sustainable water sources for agricultural use.
The project is a new innovation in the country and aims to expand to different locations in lower Guinea. Currently, more than 20 acres of land is being covered by the activities from which eight acres have already been used to cultivate crops such as pepper, onion, cucumber, and tomatoes. Another component of the project is catfish growing, which has also taken off.
The ongoing project is expected to contribute meaningfully to the Guinean economy and improve nutrition, while increasing the incomes of the rural folks.
