Actions that concern both young people and adults  

Sô-Zounko is one of the lake cities of Benin that is part of the commune of Sô-ava on the shores of Lake Nokoué, about ten kilometres north of Cotonou. The population of Sô-Zounko is estimated at 15,650 inhabitants in 2014, 70% of whom live from fishing.

Fondacio has been present in Sô-Zounko since 2003 and has developed literacy projects for adult women and men, craftsmen and fishermen, and tutoring for young students, as well as a library.

The literacy and school supervision center offers several activities.

School coaching:

  • Tutoring offered each year to classes identified as the most difficult, mock exams for primary school
  • Library : A small library in the centre provides children with books and manuals and a taste for reading.
  • Literacy : literacy courses in Fon and French for adults and young people, especially women.

 

These projects meet the needs of a poor population with a high rate of illiteracy and school drop-outs. Mastery of languages (French and Fon) and the ability to count enable women to better monitor their economic activities and increase their income

To perpetuate these projects and nd develop new projects, young people have been trained at the IFF Africa and in Porto-Novo in the field of animal production and marketing for the establishment of an income-generating activity (IGA), and fish farming.
