  • 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.

"About 10 years ago, I noticed that some lorries were leaving the north of Benin with cargos of tomatoes, chillies, and other vegetables. I have asked some people to know whether all these products are cultivated in the north of Benin. They told me no, that it came from Burkina Faso. So, I said to myself that this is serious. If our country, Benin, that has rainfall from north to south, and from east to west, and that we buy products from Burkina Faso, it means that there is a problem. We have to think differently. It is not by working as an accountant in a company that I will make myself useful to my country. I want to produce!”
