The ambition of Songhai is to consolidate the development process
that links social characteristics with economic activities. To attain
this goal, Songhai seeks to empower men and women by instilling
in them an entrepreneurial spirit in the areas of agricultural production,
food processing, craft making and training.
The training of students in Porto-Novo did not sufficiently take
into account the realities of all the agro-ecological zones of Benin.
In response to this need, Songhai is gradually extending its activities
to other parts of the country, thus demonstrating its interest in
creating local environmental awareness.
The current sites are located in the following areas:
in the Oueme region, in the
south-eastern part of Benin:
in the Zou region, in the center
in the Borgu region, in the north
in the Mono region, in the south-west
in the Mono
in the Atlantic region, 80km north of
This geographical expansion of the Songhai movement
is also progressively reaching other countries in the West African
sub-region. This is the case regarding the site in Nigeria (Songhai
Delta - Amukpe)..
