PROFESSIONAL INVOLVEMENT OF VISITORS IN 4 STEPS

Welcoming : The visitor is given accommodation in PromoEducation NGO's Guest House in Abomey the historical capital city of Benin. The NGO's staff members have the first and introductory workshop with the visitor to get acquainted with his profile and his expectations from his stay in Benin. This first workshop includes a briefing on the Competency Based Approach system of education in force in Benin. Then an office and work materials are given to the visitor.

Identification of a peer professional : Based on the profile of the visitor, a local peer professional is identified. Great care is taken for profile matching.

Planning : PromoEducation works closely with the Ministries of Education. Consequently, we officially receive both curricular and extracurricular activities planning from the Ministries and schools. Moreover, our informal knowledge of the field allows us to be constantly informed of any cultural exhibition and performance going on in Abomey and beyond. In fact, we believe that culture and education are strongly related. All these elements are used by the NGO, the visitor and his peer to design a professional schedule for the visitor. It includes classroom work, office work, field work and fun: guest speaking, seminars and conferencesÂ… French and local languages classes, trips, cultural performances involvement, local cuisine ...

Implementation : Under the guidance of the peer, the schedule is executed. The visitor is at times assigned a host family. The peer's family can also become a host family to the visitor.

SPONSORING

PromoEducation supports the Every child deserves that global solidarity declared by the UN Secretary - General Ban Ki- moon on May 19, 2015 at the World Education Forum in Incheon, Republic of Korea. Accordingly, we offer a type of sponsoring targeting at mobilizing the international community around assistantship and global partnership for education. This program is twofold :

School Sponsoring

Individuals, group of individuals or humanitarian organizations can get involved in classrooms building, donation of new or used school supplies and equipments, and connection of schools to schools. School Sponsoring also means the creation of suitable conditions for the linkage of two different schools.

Student Sponsoring

This program allows connection of a student or a group of students to a compassionate individual or group of people for a partial or a complete scholarly assistance. A partial assistance is limited to school supplies whereas a complete assistance includes supplies, 3 daily meals and health care. Two or three times within a school year, sponsors receive from PromoEducation NGO a detailed feedback regarding students' achievements.
