From June to September is the rainy season in Benin, then the maximum working period in the countryside. The women participating in the project are very busy and that's why this time the training  meetings were discontinued. In August / September we will take stock of the harvest and the subsequent sale of the products.
From 24/6 to 4/7 it was held in Natitingou a workshop for Italians and Beninese teachers who have joined the project. Purpose of the workshop: a reciprocal knowledge and an exchange of experiences about the project implemented in their schools on the theme of adding value to local products, a more healthy and balanced nutrition and environmental protection. At the opening day was attended by two local authorities: the mayor of Natitingou and a spokesman priest of the diocese of Natitingou. In addition to three days of work in the classroom, they were made of visits to the Beninese schools involved to meet the pupils and to better understand the local reality.
At return of Italian teachers will be organized meetings of restitution in Italian schools.

With the valuable contribution of our benefactors, we were able to raise money to buy the first estufas. Through our local partner, the fundacion Prosol, we identified 3 families with the greatest need and these days it was possible to bring in their homes the estufas. The time of delivery has been a time of celebration: all three families wanted to share their simple lunch with our local contacts in gratitude. As mentioned in the project, a new estufas actually changes the lives of these families, because they can have a hot meal and, possibly substantial, in climatic conditions is critical to not get sick. And because of that we take this opportunity to thank again all those who have supported us or decide to do so in the future.

S. will be able to walk!

Rehabilitation session
Rehabilitation session

The TiyendePamodzi Group and the physiotherapist Gift are doing a great work for the project “Let’s walk together”.

Several meetings have been organized with village leaders in order to sensitize the population about the problem of disability, widespread all over the Country.

32 volunteers attanded a course of physiotherapy in order to best meet the needs of people with disabilities and their families.

Since the beginning of the year, 23 adults and 176 children have attended rehabilitation sessions. During these meetings food is provided to all the children and their carers, and the undernourished children receive extra food.

19 sanitary principals were bought: among them wheelchairs, special walking frames and prostheses. We still need to buy many other principals to help a huge number of children to have a peaceful life and as normal as possible, but unfortunately the economic resources do not allow it. This is why sometimes we are obliged to make a selection among these children. It is the story of S., a two years old child who was obliged to amputate his leg because of a bad infection. We bought a prosthesis for him and now he has started the rehabilitation which will allow him to walk in less than one year.
