Christophe Viltard


Head of Programmes

Christophe Viltard is responsible for the development of our pedagogical programs in Benin. Before joining Graines de Paix, Christophe managed the international education programme of Action de Soutien à l’Enfance Démunie supporting children and young people in great difficulty. His international experience includes several years with Action Contra la Faim as Field Security Program Officer and Field Office Manager in Mali. He has worked extensively as a volunteer in the field including supporting a market garden development project in Mali and field missions in Central Asia and West Africa for international solidarity organisations.

Christophe has a Master’s degree in Agronomy and International Development and a Diploma of Higher Specialized Studies in Agro-Ecosystem Management.

“With a rich experience in international solidarity, a multidisciplinary approach and a particular sensitivity to the role of education for development, the action of Graines de Paix seemed to me to be very relevant. Peace is a prerequisite for any sustainable development. I now hold the position of Project Manager for Benin, and as an agronomist by training, cultivating peace seems to me to be one of the most promising crops.”
