Why the “Agriculture” area
The Hubi & Vinciane Foundation wishes to develop a framework for food supply and production. And stimulate entrepreneurship, especially among young people and women.
Intensive training is offered on integrated agriculture with innovative and ecological techniques, focusing on sustainability. Consultations are also organized with farmers in the 24 villages to encourage them to set up their own projects.
Integrated Agriculture Training Program
The Foundation supports and facilitates practical training in the field of integrated agriculture, the improvement of farming techniques and the processing and marketing of healthy food products for young farmers.
The Foundation has a team of three Beninese experts: a project manager and two agricultural engineers.
The program works in collaboration with the local partner Centre de Formation Agricole, Ferme de Soukonon, with the departmental office of the Ministry of Agriculture and with the local farming community.
Gomez Kparou, a village in the district of N’Dali, is known for the quality of its horticultural products, especially its ‘gombo’.
Justin Baguiri, a self-employed farmer, has already completed several training courses at the Foundation.
