School before our involvement
This association’s goal is to promote a whole action emphasizing human as well as economic progress in the area of l’Ouémé-Plateau, particularly by building an elementary school, a rural health facility enabling the local population to educate itself to hygiene and health measures. It does so by following:
– the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789)
– the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948)
– the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989)
Thanks to a gift from Zimon’s habitants of a 59,527 m2 field, the association has realized one of its first goal: building an eight classrooms and a library. Right now, the building of two extra classrooms is taking place.
These facilities have enabled the school to accommodate more students. In 2007, 280 students were attending the elementary school. The association also does its best to take care of the buildings to make education the easiest possible.
Every year, the association participates in equipping the school, give out school supplies, textbooks, clothing for the most needy families, etc.
