A sustainable future for Benin

PlanFutur inspires and empowers people in rural Benin to develop knowledge and skills to provide for their own livelihood

Our Focus

PlanFutur’s philosophy is based on solidarity and equality – and the belief in a world where all children have the opportunity to realize their dreams.

“ When I go back to Benin, I see former classmates who have finished their studies, but who do nothing because there is no work in their field of study. PlanFutur encourages them to become an entrepreneur and do something that benefits others as well.

Our dream is to become an important player in stimulating entrepreneurship in Benin. This involves reducing unemployment and encouraging innovation and creativity. ”

The Challenges in Benin

PlanFutur is a foundation that works for underprivileged young people in Benin.

Benin, on the west coast of Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world.

The population consists of almost 60% young people, 48% of whom are illiterate: the majority of young people do not follow further education after primary education, because of the registration costs that are often not affordable for families.

Many young people live in poverty, have limited access to education and health car and see few opportunities on the labor market.

PlanFutur is working to ensure that adolescent young people, especially the girls, have access to education and the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
