About Us

The Songhai center, Benin, has over the past 23 years created an arena where Africans learn and put into practice the principles of self determination. The Songhai philosopy aims to unleash the creative potentials of its local community and to cultivate a strong sense of rational use of local resources. With emphasis on training, research and enterpreneurship in the agricultural sector, and its value chains, Songhai aims to • Enable young Africans to develop the capacity to and desire for a higher quality of life • Develop a sustainable cost-effective production system that enhances the environment • Encourage Africans to determine their socio-economic destiny on ‘the drivers’ seat’
