Grâce-Marlène GNINTOUNGBE, 29 years, is a diplomat by training. Braving the reluctance of her relatives, she created “At Marlene’s garden”, an organic vegetable farm. Marlène’s migration to agriculture has not been easy. She has faced several challenges, starting by the fact that her parents were not keen for her to be an agricultural entrepreneur. But she was determined and went forward with her idea. “It’s not the money that we could get that is important. What is important is to do what we love and are comfortable with what we are doing, and that it has a positive impact on our life and on other people’s lives,” says Marlène.

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.

The ruins of the Dahomeyans palaces and temples can be seen in Abomey, while Ouidah is a poignant reminder of where their riches came from: the slave trade. The Route dEsclaves in Ouidah was the last walk on African soil for slaves bound for Brazil and the Caribbean.
