AVO-Benin: Aiuto alle vedove e orfani nella Repubblica del Benin
English: (italiano:segue / français: à suivre)
Why and how Mr. Henri Dah-Gbeto started this wonderful project:
Benin is a poor country and particularly affected by AIDS and malaria. These diseases, add the misery to the poverty, leaving thousands of orphans left to themselves. These children, especially AIDS orphans, live in a very precarious and an immense solitude. Powerless over these many problems, the orphans join the street to find their livelihoods ... And unfortunately many seniors, to avoid this, scarify themselves by abandoning school before the time to care for the younger; they seek income-generating activities to ensure their survival. They become dropouts and most of the time street children.
