About us

Our Foundation works in Belgium with a team of voluntary employees and in Benin with a professional local team. Both teams guarantee a sound organization and realization of the projects. This operation has a history of more than 40 years and began with the dream of Hubi et Vinciane, a dream that tragically ended for them but that we do not want to deny you.
