Benin is between Nigeria and Togo. Its shores include what used to be called the ‘Slave Coast’, from where African slaves were once shipped to the Americas. Nearly 20% of the 9 million population is undernourished, malnourishment is a great hindrance to children's development.
SOS Children gives a loving home to vulnerable children in one of 11 SOS family homes in the Natitingou village, where there is also a nursery, primary and secondary school. As the children grow up they join the SOS youth programme, helping them go on to lead independent lives, breaking the vicious cycle of poverty.
Your purchases are giving children in Natitingou a new start.
A heartfelt thank you.
