Empowering vulnerable girls with social and financial skills in Benin

In October, our partners Société d’Inclusion Financiére (SIF) held a National Project Kick Off in Benin for our project on Empowering vulnerable girls with social and financial skills.

Funded by the Nationale Postcode Loterij, this project aims to socially and economically empower an estimated 26,000 adolescent girls and boys in Senegal, Benin and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It will provide at least 3,000 adolescent boys and girls in Benin each year with the life skills and financial literacy necessary to make informed choices about their health, finances, and education.
