    Dear responsible

    We are a not-for-profit and non government organization named Association de Jeunes Determines et Unis pour un Ideal (AJEDUI) situated in republic of Benin (West of Sub. Saharan Africa ) which is near the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We work in areas of health; education; agriculture; protection of environment, assistance to mother, street’s children and HIV/AIDS orphans – human rights-good governance-micro credit (small loans) to destitute people or poor – distribution of food, clothes, toys with a small financial assistance at orphans and street’s children.

    We help artisan without means to create and manage their own business.

    We reduce clandestine emigration for young African towards developed countries in crating projects and jobs for them.

    The effectiveness of our programs depends of our partners and of donations. So, charities, international organizations and donors must enquire about our problems, the poverty’s rate, and disasters because of climate’s change, the grinding poverty of our community to help us. Our organization’s investigations near the population to know the rate of poverty have permitted us to make the following report:

    -In ten (10) villages on fifteen (15) more than 85 per cent of population take at the most one meal per day.

    -Most of children in age to go to school are at home or in the street. Because, there are not schools in or near their village, schools are situated very far (20 to 15 kilometres ) from certain villages and these schools are often built with precarious material (straw, bamboo, wood) without doors ant windows.

    -The fees of healtheare are very expensive for people in our community. So, the sick persons prefere staying at home because they have not enough means to go to hospital and then it is the death which takes place.

    Programs of HIV/AIDS sensus and detection are not known by all our population. So, there are numerous persons living with HIV/AIDS

    *In our community, there are numerous unemployed young. So, they go to Europe and USA to search for a job and also make fortune. Certain young are successful and become without papers in the welcome country. Other young are intercepted by the sailors who throw them in the sea. Other young go through the desert. They are attached and killed by the gangsters of desert.

    -Numerous young girls are become prostitutes because they can’t satisfy their basic needs. So, when have a pregnancy, they throw their baby in the bush, garbage or ravine.

    All these problems mentioned above are the consequence of grinding poverty in our country. It is the reason why our organisation request collaborations and partnerships to charity’s or philanthropy’s organizations tender at this report

    of AJEDUI to join us for the reduction of poverty in our community, because nobody has right to be happy all alone.

    We accept all donations or projects which will permit to reduce poverty and the durable development .
