About Us

Who Are We?

The Jerome Damey foundation was established in early 2014 and we strive to provide orphans and underprivileged children in Guinea with education, food and shelter. We have been able to build a school with 4 classrooms. We currently care for 95 children. Our mission is to expand our services and give as many children as possible a chance. Our school currently offers primary education and these children have little or no opportunity to attend secondary school. That is why we aim to expand our current school to also offer secondary education. To make this expansion possible, we need your help and support.

Jerome Damey and the founders

Jerome Damey was a young Guinean student who was deeply impressed by the poor conditions of many of the children in Guinea. Jerome wanted to become a teacher and build a school for these underprivileged orphans. Sadly, Jerome passed away at the age of 24 due to complications with lung disease. His sister Cecile Lamko Geenacker founded the organization together with her husband Gerard in 2014. Lamko wanted to honor her brother and his wish for these children to give more opportunities and a better life and she herself was personally touched by the suffering of children in her country of birth. Lamko and Gerard have been able to make great strides to achieve their goal, but want to expand further and help as many children as possible
