Providing scholarships since 1998!01.01.10

Launched in 1998, the Benin Education Fund (BEF) is a U.S.-based nonprofit that has provided scholarships and educational support to over 550 students in rural West Africa.

BEF programs are primarily funded through donations from dozens of individuals in the U.S. and Canada.  We also receive in-kind support, including office space and school supplies, from several individuals and organizations in Benin.

BEF partners and supporters include Out of Africa® distributed by CIO, IBM, the International Monetary Fund’s Civic Program, the U.S. Peace Corps in Benin, Lead Alliance, and Diplomatic Language Services.
