The school

CEVASTE/ECOLOJAH is a pan-African and humanitarian elementary school whose main objective is "To educate and shape a new generation of proud, environmentally conscious, unity-minded African citizens with a clear vision of shared prosperity and sustainability for their continent".

All activities convey and support the very philosophy on which the Center is built: "To foster a renewed love and knowledge of nature among all Africans; children, youth, elders and allies ."

CEVASTE thus promotes an art of living centered on environmental and cultural diversity, with a plural approach (educational, practical, but also spiritual).

The educational program

Through their unique program, they forge a different and unabashed mindset in African children and youth. Their non-sanctioned educational program complements the Beninese national curriculum with value-added, culturally-based disciplines such as agro-ecology (organic farming), pan-African history, utilitarian arts and crafts, as well as eco-citizenship, personal development and spiritual harmony.

In another sense, a dual learning process is employed using an open intergenerational dialogue, without taboos and with guided respect.


Over 3,000 Children in school

From 2000 to 2021, CEVASTE / ECOLOJAH has provided education and training to more than 3,000 children between the ages of 5 and 18 from various vulnerable rural social groups: orphans, destitute youth, dropouts, children with special educational and medical needs (disabilities), etc. We also provide support and follow-up to some of the orphans by offering financial assistance and training to help them become self-sufficient, which may include assistance in setting up their own business, pursuing higher education (university and vocational) or finding a job placement and employment.

The educational option of CEVASTE / ECOLOJAH restores a knowledge and love of self and a rediscovery of nature. It also leads to a sustainable environmental management system centered on nature, which is the only solution for a development that will benefit all Africans.

Each ECOLOJAH student and CEVASTE trainee benefits from a total and permanent immersion in a way of life where what is said is consistent with what they see and experience. Such an environment convinces them of a promising future. Once they are truly convinced, they have the power to influence their peers and parents and change the minds of those around them.

All of CEVASTE / ECOLOJAH's activities reflect and respect the very philosophy upon which the center is built: "To foster a renewed love and knowledge of nature in all Africans."
