Project titleFor a high quality secondary school in Kandi
Kandi Commune, Department of Alibori, Benin
The commune of Kandi has around 135’000 inhabitants of which 51% are under 15 years old. The commune has 55 primary schools. For secondary school, 13 colleges host more than 10,000 students in 2012. All lack classrooms, libraries and laboratories. Students are averaging 60 per class, studying under unfavorable conditions that lead to many dropouts.
The Life for All Foundation (FVPT), a development and social welfare organization, opened a college in 2010 to provide access to quality secondary education for children in the region. With a first module of 4 classrooms, Champagnat College opened its first high school class in Oct. 2010. Strengthening this project by continuing training and supervision of children up to the baccalaureate is a priority.
