The partnership has its origins in some exchanges during the 2015/2016 between CLMC and fio. PSD to understand how to intervene on behalf of people "errantes", often with psychiatric problems, with the aim of reintegration into the community

The walkers are Guineans adults, mainly the mentally ill homeless, wandering in the urban environment. and’ a complex phenomenon ,multifactorial, and today in Guinea Conakry finds no answer if no to health, both in Western medicine that in traditional medicine healers. Within the framework of the various assistance measures so they risk being completely ignored or being traced, simplistically, in its mental health protocols

The project is coordinated by CLMC and involves two Italian NGOs, GAK, and LVIA.
