Winrock International


Winrock’s history in Benin goes back roughly 25 years. While women in the West African nation have made great strides in recent decades, many are still disadvantaged by insufficient and inequitable access to educational, financial, health, or social resources. Winrock’s work in Benin has been particularly focused in this area — providing scholarships, training and mentoring programs for girls and women to advance their participation in agricultural, financial, political and environmental fields.
