Guinean President Alpha Conde received representatives of Turkish schools and an association run by volunteers from the Gülen movement at his office on Monday, thanking the group for their educational efforts in his country.

La Citadelle Colleges General Manager Veysel Camuzcu and other school officials informed Conde about the school’s activities during the meeting, which was aired live by the country’s state and private TV channels.

The Guinean president praised the school’s activities and thanked officials for their efforts, underlining that such educational activities serve as a bridge between Turkey and Guinea.

Volunteers from the Gülen movement, inspired by Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, run hundreds of schools in more than 160 countries across the world. The movement, which promotes education with the aim of facilitating inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue, enjoys significant prestige in many countries around the world, and has come to be perceived as international prestige for Turkey too.

Fethullah Gülen and the role of nonviolence in a time of terror

Fethullah Gülen is unusual in adding a distinctly Islamic voice to the calls for a non-violent approach to conflict resolution.

Is his a static and passive approach bounded by dogma, or are we witnessing an innovative, active and self-aware spirit of transformation which really can lead to a new way of defining Islam in action?
