Brief description of Project:

The Centre de Formation et Développement Comunautaire (CEFODEC) needs to buy seeds to develop corn, bean and soy crops in their fields. The center hosts 50 children victims of the traffic of child labor to Nigeria and also children from the communities of Agbangnizoun, Kleukanmé and Zogbodomé. Those kids are alphabetized in French (and prepared for the CEG exams) and also receive professional training in tailoring, weaving, animal husbandry (goats, chickens and rabbits) and gardening.

From 2010 to the end of 2011, the CEFODEC is hosting the PED project (Protetion de l’enfant et Développement Humain Durable). The project is in partnership with L’Union Europeene, BCAT and le Ministere de la Famile) and its goal is to give technical support to the families to help them to develop their own sustainability to better support their children.

The meals consumed by the children of the center comes from CEFODEC fields, so that is a very important to ensure a quantity of nutritional products from the farm such as corn, beans and soy. The agriculture is the main activity in CEFODEC because it ensures the quality of the meals consumed by the children of the center, brings revenues and also is an important professional tool for the community training provided by the center trough the year of 2011.
Therefore, the seeds will provide the vegetables that play an important role in the nutritional diet of the kids of the CEFODEC.
