Summary

This project aims to get poor rural children into school, many of them are orphans. We have helped build classrooms, and now seek to support the children into good quality education and a meal for them each day. Older children are sponsored into apprenticeships or further education. This year we are also building a residential unit for needy orphaned and disabled children, and establishing an eye care programme including access to surgery.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Benin is a poor African country and orphaned children are often the most needy, as are children with disabilities. We are seeking to support a local group which helps these most disadvantaged children, so that they may get in to school, access accommodation and / or treatment if required, and then later go on to vocational training or further education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Providing new flood-proof classrooms has made education a much more secure possibility in Dogba village and the local community. Building a resdential unit in Affame will give good care and a safe home to vulnerable children. A HANDS AROUND THE WORLD child sponsorship scheme allows for ongoing support.

Potential Long Term Impact

We hope that enabling larger numbers of children to access education will significantly impact on their lives. Particularly, educating girls is well known to have a dramatically beneficial effect on the health and well-being of the next generation, including improving child and maternal mortality rates.
