Discover our current priority programs
- By helping us to combat the discrimination suffered by girls: Girls are the first victims of discrimination (education, early marriage, sexual harassment). The net enrollment rate of girls in primary school, equal to 50%, indicates that half of girls of school age are denied the right to education. Gender inequalities, manifested for example by the 25 percentage point gap between girls and boys in primary school enrollment, are alarming. However, a real lever for poverty reduction, the education of girls has a major impact on the development of Benin. By donating to the Girls’ Rights Support Fund, you help them develop their potential to become free adults.
- By accompanying us during our response to anemia: By making a donation, help the children and their communities withstand the monsoon in the wetlands.
- By allowing us to develop: 92% of our funds are allocated to our social mission in favor of the most vulnerable children. Only 8% of our expenses cover our operating and fundraising costs. By contributing to these expenses which are essential to our activity, you allow us to develop the association and its actions.

Decovoyage ♥ Hirondelle de l’Avenir: 5 € donated to the association
I have known Amélie since high school. I had the pleasure of meeting Sophie and discovering Hirondelle de l’Avenir during the annual calendar launch evenings. We have created a warm scented candle, just like their association.
“Sponsoring a child is giving him a new chance to build himself”
I am particularly sensitive to the work carried out by Hirondelle de l’Avenir in Benin. Their approach is courageous and generous. Hirondelle of the future is an association with a human dimension. Give them some of your time or money; you will know why, for what results, in complete transparency.
