Graines de Paix designs education solutions for sustainable peace. This project will provide violence-free education training, resources and mentoring to 1'800 school teachers in Northern Benin, ensuring quality education to over 100'000 children. The Alibori region has the lowest schooling rates in Benin and is exposed to incursions by fundamentalist groups. By improving education, we will boost school success for over 100'000 children in Alibori and empower them to build a peaceful future.

The Alibori region in Northern Benin has the lowest schooling rate (59%) and the highest school abandonment rate in the country. The influence from neighboring active fundamentalist groups, violence at school, instability and oppressive norms threaten the schooling and the future of children in the region. Growing up with no hope for a better future increases the risk of seeing these kids fall into an inevitable spiral of violence and radicalisation.


Quality education is key to reducing violence at school and in society. This project will provide training, education resources and mentoring for non-violent teaching to 1'800 school teachers in Alibori. Over 100K children will benefit from quality education and a safe school environment. By promoting peaceful education at school and at home, we aim to reduce violence against children and promote school success in Alibori, empowering them to build a better and more peacful future.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 20 expert trainers and 1'800 teachers in violence-free education. 112'141 children are currently enrolled in primary school in Alibori and will benefit from violence-free education. Our community activities aim to reach 1'200 families to promote peaceful education beyond schools. The government has set out clear goals to increase enrolment by 2030. A higher schooling rate would increase the impact of Graines de Paix's vision and drive more children away from violence.
