Summary

This project aims to get poor rural children cared for and into school. We support Chez Papa Geoff as a residential unit for up to 24 orphaned and vulnerable children. Older children are sponsored into apprenticeships or further education. We also support the development of an agricultural programme to help the long-term sustainability of the project.

Challenge

Benin is a poor African country and orphaned children are often the most vulnerable, as are children with disabilities. We are supporting a local group which helps these most disadvantaged children, so that they may get in to school, access accommodation and / or treatment if required, and then later go on to vocational training or further education.

Solution

Building a residential unit in Affame gives good care and a safe home to a small number of vulnerable children. Enabling the local team to grow produce will provide a healthy diet and generate income for the project. A HANDS AROUND THE WORLD child sponsorship scheme allows for ongoing support, aiming to allow children to realise their potential and in future help to break the cycle of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

We hope that enabling larger numbers of children to access education will significantly impact on their lives. Particularly, educating girls is well known to have a dramatically beneficial effect on the health and well-being of the next generation, including improving child and maternal mortality rates.
