  • Benin: The gardens of hope

    Five youths from Benin and Niger are testing and advising farmers on agro-ecological techniques. With a background in organic agriculture, Souleymane ABDOU-BAHAR understood the importance of eating safe and healthy vegetables. When he arrived in Benin, he noticed that farmers were not using pesticides correctly. And this presented a danger for the farmers themselves, the consumers and also the environment. So, together with a group of youths, he started the association “The gardens of hope”, whereby they experiment on agro-ecological practices and provide advisory services to farmers on sustainable agriculture. “Going back to the land is good, but we have to do it in a dynamic that preserves the environment,” says Oluwafèmi KOCHONI, secretary general of the association.

  • Benin: A coach for aspiring agricultural entrepreneurs

    Neuly BEHANZIN, 37 years, is a coaching consultant. In 2015, she created “PANAFRICANA”, a farm school for young agricultural entrepreneurs. While discussing with youth, Neuly realised that many wanted to get into agriculture. But they needed to be trained and coached. As she was herself not into farming, people were not convinced by what she was saying. So, she decided to set up her farm and show to people rather than just talking. “You really have to differentiate yourself from others and it’s from this difference that we will go far,” says Neuly.
