Report from the April Trip

Back from Benin, we present a review of all that has taken place and what we still have to accomplish. A three-minute summary report follows.

Dear supporters of our Education in Benin program,


Here are the key elements that we accomplished during our trip in the month of April:

April 7th-9th

Candidate training for the positions of Training Officer, Pedagogical Resources Officer, and Logistics and Finance Officer was organized in the Graines de Paix offices in Abomey-Calavi.

Participants attended a presentation of the NGO Graines de Paix, its pedagogy, and its methodology. Graines de Paix programs in Switzerland and in its international offices (Côte d’Ivoire and Benin) were introduced. Experimental activities of several aims were carried out: group team-building, the development of self-knowledge, and the adoption of the values and methodology of Graines de Paix.

April 10th and 11th

Graines de Paix welcomed representatives from the Ministry of Pre-Primary and Primary Education, representatives from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Microfinance, as well as the President and Secretary-General of the National Federation of Associations of Parents of Students in Bohicon. The aim of the workshop was the validation of the project’s theory of change to strengthen pre-primary education in the Atlantic and Littoral region.

We want to thank you again for your support! We would not be able to do this work without you. Follow the activities of Graines de Paix on our Facebook page and by visiting our website.

Coming Up:

The first trainings of trainers are scheduled for autumn 2019. Securing Graines de Paix contents into the teaching program and the validation of the training plan with the authorities (the two ministries) are planned for the summer.
