• Benin: From diplomacy to organic agriculture

    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.

  • Benin: The gardens of hope

    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.

    Benin Travel Video - If youre heading to West Africa to unearth lost treasure, look no further than Benin. This club-shaped country, on the western edge of Nigeria, was once one of the most powerful empires in Africa -- the Dahomey kingdom. 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. Museums here and in Porto Novo, Benins lagoon-side capital, examine the resultant Afro-Brazilian society and culture. Cotonou, on the other hand, is urban Africa at its most frazzling and polluted - but is not without its own charms, a lively nightlife and good shopping being a couple of th...

Benin Travel Video - If youre heading to West Africa to unearth lost treasure, look no further than Benin. This club-shaped country, on the western edge of Nigeria, was once one of the most powerful empires in Africa -- the Dahomey kingdom. 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. Museums here and in Porto Novo, Benins lagoon-side capital, examine the resultant Afro-Brazilian society and culture. Cotonou, on the other hand, is urban Africa at its most frazzling and polluted - but is not without its own charms, a lively nightlife and good shopping being a couple of them. Regardless of the ill-gotten Dahomeyan gains glittering in the Musée Historique dAbomey, there are plenty of treasures on Benins dusty streets and palm-fringed beaches. This is the birthplace of voodoo, the countrys national religion, exported by the slaves and distorted by Hollywood. Voodoo is an important part of everyday life and most towns bear signs of it, such as the fetish markets stocked with the heads and skins of every animal imaginable. Elephants, lions and crocodiles can be seen in more animated form in the northern wildlife parks, notably Pendjari, one of the best in West Africa. Then there are the stilt villages, home to thousands in the southern lagoons, and the northern tata somba (fortlike mud huts) built by the insular Somba people. Not only is Benin a richly historical and cultural country, this politically stable nation is one of the easiest parts of West Africa to travel in. Enjoy Your Benin Travel Video
