CHILDREN'S TESTIMONIALS

THE RURAL EXODUS PREVENTED ME FROM BELIEVING IN ME BUT SCHOOL GIVEN ME A SECOND CHANCE.

“In Benin, particularly in the North, unsupervised children and especially orphans aged 12 or over go to the rural areas in search of motorcycles. The actions of the NGO “Hirondelle de l’Avenir” have made it possible to avoid this precariousness because this NGO enrolled me in school and today I am in 3rd grade at Lycée Mathieu Boukey in Parakou. ”

I NO LONGER HAVE TO GO LATE TO COURT BECAUSE DRINKING WATER IS NEAR MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

“I had to walk dozens of km to find water in the backwater, which always made me late for school. Since a large-diameter well was drilled by the NGO “Hirondelle de l’Avenir”, I have clean drinking water in my neighborhood, which currently prevents me from being late for school. “

THANKS TO THE NGO “HIRONDELLE DE L’AVENIR”, I LIVE THEM AT EACH END OF THE MONTH.

“I am fatherless and motherless, you had to do hard labor in order to earn some money. The donations and actions of the NGO to fight against child labor in the TOUROU / PARAKOU region have enabled me to avoid child labor in order to get back to school.

This NGO gives us food every month, school supplies and documents and health insurance. ”

SPONSORS AND SPONSORS TESTIMONIALS

“Several years ago, I had the opportunity, thanks to the Hirondelle de l’Avenir association, to sponsor the adorable little Issifou Moumouni.”

I was then able to bond with my godson through the exchange of photos and letters. I still remember his first drawing that I received: the outline of his little hand! A lot of emotions…

The association regularly sends us photos of Issifou, so I can see with pleasure that he is growing up very quickly! I am proud to see that today, he is a young man, fulfilled and happy thanks to all the actions of Les Hirondelles. A big thank you to Sophie and her volunteers who regularly send us an update on the use of our monthly donations.

In addition, by connecting to the website: www.hirondelledelavenir.com and the facebook page, I learn about the many projects in the village of Issifou. Bravo to Les Hirondelles for all their great deeds! Without this association, I would not have known the wonderful means of sponsorship, which allows Issifou to grow up in good health with improved living conditions!

Thank you, les Hirondelles!

“Above all, I wanted to help a child through a structure fulfilling several criteria that I consider important”.

For a long time, I wanted to sponsor a child who does not really have the same social conditions as us.

Above all, I wanted to help a child through a structure fulfilling several criteria that I consider important, namely:

Financial transparency, active structure in order to promote and develop by using their knowledge to create beautiful events at a lower cost and also a very diligent monitoring of children.

The Hirondelle de l’Avenir team really adores children and what they have created, it feels and makes you want to help them so that the children are happy.

VOLUNTEER TESTIMONIALS

“A dream come true, a journey that is priceless, an experience filled with beautiful lessons. Hirondelle de l’avenir made me open my eyes and made me understand that happiness is in the simple things.”

This enriching experience allowed me to understand the difficulty of some people in this beautiful country of Benin but above all made me realize how lucky we Westerners are to live without lack. What I took away from this trip is by no means the lack of some but the richness of their hearts .. Their smiles, their welcome, what more can we say … Knowing that we are all capable of making life easier for these people. families thanks to this kind of associations is a beautiful thing. Living it is even better! I wish everyone to live this experience at least once in their life in order to understand that the only real wealth is to be able to give without counting.

PARTNER TESTIMONIALS

“And then seeing the images of the actions carried out with orphans and the local community in Benin, I understood that I had to be there and in my turn and make a small contribution to the edifice.”

I got to know the association “Hirondelle of the future” through a friend, as part of a collaboration with the Owl Paris brand.

What first struck me was when I discovered that behind this great association, hide two young women who have been friends for years, both beautiful and intelligent, who have been able to unite around them people from all walks of life. for this great cause.

And then seeing the images of the actions carried out with orphans and the local community in Benin, I understood that I had to be there and in my turn and bring a small stone to the building as they say .

Since the things continue to evolve, the association widens its field: environment, promotion of information and communication… It is nice!

JULIENNE DE FONSÉCA, creator of the OWL PARIS brand

“It is with great emotion that the association made us live the experience from a distance, with photos and testimonies.”

I have been working in the French Antilles since 2012, and for a long time I wanted to take action in favor of African countries. However, we lacked an on-site structure that could provide logistics.

After meeting Sophie and Amélie, it seemed obvious to me to set up an action together.

In a few months, the network, the structure, the dynamism and the availability of the association of the Hirondelles de l’Avenir, allowed us to launch the project. We have shipped over 200 prescription glasses for children aged 4 to 8 participating in their access to learning to read and write as the foundation of Education.

It is with great emotion that the association made us live the experience from a distance, with photos and testimonials.

We are very proud of this action, thank you to the Hirondelles de l’Avenir…
