This page is to present our intervention in the sector of education. We focus on conciliating conservation of the environment and promoting good education for population living around protected areas. The problem is that those population are very poor and the only one solution they can use to survive is destroying natural resources. Unfortunately those resources are the remaining environment that can protect some countries from dessertification and from many other environmental problems. The most durable way of helping those poor populations is to play an important role in their education. While doing it they agree on the fact that the important help they have is due to the fact that they have accepted to contribute to the conservation of the environment. The following links can help you to have more details about our strategy. The document is still in French, but we will translate it very soon : overview of some of the activities achieved by SOPODIVA NGO
The following pictures can also help to appreciate some of our activities in Benin, Niger and Burkina Faso (West Africa).

Do you think that it will be fair to leave those resources for destruction ? In case you answer NO, please do not forget that it can’t be possible without your contribution. Because it is a vast ecosystem in the heart of West Africa. It is shared among Niger, Burkina Faso and Benin ! Then your contribution can really help.
See how happy those student are to discover what a natural environment is ! Don’t you want the coming generations to have the same opportunity?
