2. Public elementary school of Aïtchédji, Ward of Aïtchédji, District Abomey-Calavi Center, Community of Abomey-Calavi, Republic of Benin


Aïtchédji is a ward in the municipality of Abomey-Calavi in the administrative district of Abomey-Calavi Center. The municipality of Abomey-Calavi is located in the department of Atlantique in southern Benin. The administrative district of Abomey-Calavi Center has about 150,000 inhabitants. In Aïchédji today there are about 2,480 inhabitants including about 1,100 children and adolescents. The population feeds on small craft and trade. Some people commute to Cotonou to earn their living there.

The public elementary school of Aïtchédji was founded in 2009 and registered under the number 2009 N ° 003MEMP / MEF / DC / SGM / DP of 31.12.2009. In 2009, the village close to the town of Calavi was still very small. People from the vast city of Cotonou wanted to escape the dust and noise of the city and settled with their families in Aïtchédji. At that time the place was still called Seme Aïtchédji Makinsa. This was the name of the first school founded here. In year 2009, when the school opened its doors, only 15 children enrolled. 9 years later, the number of students has increased to 411. The existing classrooms made of solid material have become too small. The Ministry of Primary Education has therefore decided to open a Group B. In this school year, 39 children attend the first grade of group B. Noteworthy is the high proportion of girls in all classes of the school. Of the 411 children of group A, 209 are girls, and of the 39 first grade children of group B 22. The children of group B are housed in a palm branch shelter. The mayor of the municipality of Abomey-Calavi has asked us to construct a building holding three classrooms, an office, and a storeroom for this fast-growing school.

The inhabitants of the village of Aïtchédji are very aware of the waste problem and have been heavily involved in keeping the ward clean. Each week, it's the turn of another group of residents to keep the streets and public spaces clean and appealing. The PTA of the school asked if we could help them with a sensitization on waste separation. In order to support this strong initiative, we propose to carry out such a sensitization together with the PTA of the school and the ward council.
