Summary

Graines de Paix is implementing innovative education solutions for strengthening sustainable peace in Northern Benin. If you care about building up peaceful communities where violence is widely spreading even among young children, for sure you can help us! We empower them to build a peaceful future in Alibori, where active fundamentalist groups, violence at school, instability and oppressive norms threaten their schooling and their lives. The mission is co-funded by the Swiss Development Agency.

Challenge

The Alibori region in North 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 future of children in the region. Growing up with no hope for a better future increases the risk of seeing them fall into an inevitable spiral of violence and radicalisation. Yet, teachers have no training in socio-emotional skills.

Solution

"Full Quality education" is designed for violent regions. It develops child fulfillment, emotional skills, discernment + violence-free teaching methods. All are key for ending violence and radicalization. The project provides training, resources and mentoring to 1800 teachers. Over 100K children will better accept going to school if these become safe. Especially, students and teachers will be empowered to replace violence with discerning dialogue and engage in making their communities peaceful.

Long-Term Impact

The project is training 20 expert trainers + 1800 teachers in violence-free full quality education. 112'141 children currently enrolled in primary school in Alibori 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 enrollment by 2030. A higher schooling rate would increase the impact of Graines de Paix's action and drive more children away from violence.
