Since the end of 2014, Woord en Daad has worked together with the MarèJan Foundation on a wide-ranging program for education, vocational education, agriculture, job placement, and business development in Sinendé, North Benin.
‘Woord en Daad is known as a reliable organization that works from Christian principles such as humanitarianism and charity. Via its partner organizations, Woord en Daad has been active in Benin for a long time, so it knows the context well. Furthermore, Woord en Daad views education – an important component of the program – as part of a bigger chain. A school is never an independent entity. Instead they examine how the young people can make the transition to economic activities. This fits in well with our way of thinking.’
