Our goal is to teach students healthy and hygienic eating habits. We have been doing this in over a hundred schools within our operational area. Through our activities, we also support the Beninese government’s National School Feeding Program, which provides children with a warm lunch at school so they attend more regularly.

  • School Gardens: Our agronomists help schools set up vegetable gardens. Students and their teachers grow vegetables and fruits for the school canteen.
  • Healthy Nutrition Training: Nutrition specialists train the women who work in school canteens to prepare healthy and balanced meals.
  • Hygiene Training: We select a few girls to be filles ambassadrices de nutrition (FAN) in each school. These girls teach their fellow students the importance of good hygiene for health.
  • Construction of Wells and Sanitary Installations: Potable water is essential for daily consumption and to follow hygiene guidelines. We invest annually in the construction of wells and sanitary installations in our partner schools.
  • Healthier and More Balanced Meals: Students can enjoy balanced meals thanks to the training and the availability of vegetables and fruits from the gardens, students can enjoy balanced meals.
  • Impact on the Community: By sharing their knowledge and expertise about healthy nutrition and hygiene, students contribute to improving the health of their family members and neighbours.
  • Better Hygiene at School: Thanks to the construction of sanitary installations and the efforts of the filles ambassadrices de nutrition, living conditions in the schools have significantly improved.
