Notes on the Newsletter

We have been sending the FOG newsletter regularly to PCVs in Guinea since 2004. Because PCVs receive our newsletter, parents and friends can send little messages to PCVs in it through our free classified ads, as long as they are a member of FOG. Most of our members aren’t aware of this! Let your parents and friends know! They will just need to send an email to newsletter@friendsofguinea.org
