Literacy of disadvantaged Children

Local Partner: Humanium & Terra Benin – HT BENIN

Recipients: 20 orphaned children

Harambee’s Contribution: € 3,500

Description: The living conditions in the village of Igoho, in the Dassa area (central Benin), are particularly difficult, as the extreme poverty of the population especially afflicts children. On top of this, the orphans who survive end up in host families, but in a state of total marginalization. The program allows 20 children to learn reading and comprehension, spelling, speaking and communication, solving math problems as well as life lessons such as cooperation, forgiveness, patience, hope, optimism, creative thinking, etc. 

Activity: The project aims to provide support and education to orphans who are victims of traumatic experiences.
