Jen and I are both in the CED, Community Economic Development, program of Peace Corps Benin. Volunteers in our program are assigned to communities to help promote economic development.
This is a picture of our CED group talking with the founder and boss of the farm from yesterday’s photo. Pascal is a busy man – in addition to founding and running this agricultural training center, he is the president of Benin’s rice farmers’ trade group. Talking with Pascal gave our group a lot of ideas about promoting entrepreneurialism in our future communities.
