Impact of project:
Impact evaluation in progress
Project Description:
This project organizes a nature trip for schools and college students. We train young schoolchildren and youth on environmental protection, enterprise development, sustainable alternatives and jobs related to supporting the environment and nature. We develop young nature guides in Agonvé in the South of Benin, young nature animators, and bird guides in the small towns of Benin. In addition, some created clubs for visitors and tourists who visit their villages. Once the young people are educated, they are able to undertake their ecotourism project with the support of Nature Hope NGO seeking local or international visitor groups. The attendance of the villages by the visitors creates new markets often with a purchasing power to the artisans of the villages that they can increase their income. Several women are trained to welcome visitors and to host them at home.
Why this project is a Good Practice example:
This project is a good practice example because it provides training for eco-tourism job opportunities and supports the environment. 





Impact Evaluation:
Lessons Learned:
Training youth in eco-tourism fields of employment is beneficial for everyone.  However, there are many challenges in implementing this type of initiative because the environment and protection of nature are not priorities for policymakers.
