In developed countries, it is easy to take for granted the benefits of electric lighting, so ubiquitous is it in our homes and buildings. In rural areas of Benin, however, a lack of adequate lighting can hinder school classrooms, and even maternity wards. Solar-powered lighting has been introduced to help overcome the problem. Situated on the same latitude and with a similar climate, both Costa Rica and Benin are producers of pineapples.

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.
Ollasset Djoro AHOUO is a young entrepreneur in Cote d’Ivoire. In 2009, she leaves the faculty of medicine to study agriculture. Today, she produces and markets organic fruits and vegetables.

You have to be patient and resilient,” says Ollasset.
