Created in Benin since 2004 and officially registered in 2010 under N ° 2010/0105 / DEP-ATL-LITT / SG / SAG-ASSOC of March 17, 2010, Jeunes Volontaires pour l'Environnement Bénin (JVE BENIN) is an non-profit organization which campaigns in favor of environmental protection.
Start with a simple initiative of young students from the village of Kpélé Tsiko in the plateau region of TOGO in the mid-1990s, JVE was born in 2001 in Togo. It started its internationalization in 2004 to be present today in about 25 countries in Africa and in the world. As part of this vast international network of JVE, the national headquarters of JVE-BENIN is in Cotonou and the organization has a regional branch in Possotomé in the municipality of Bopa and local branches in other municipalities of the country. .
JVE-Bénin implements innovative energy and climate solutions and adapts its interventions to different socio-cultural contexts. Its actions are always carried out in close partnership with local stakeholders. It is in this context that we were founding members of the local network of NGOs for clean cooking in Benin. During the last 10 years we have worked to help actors understand renewable energies, we have offered improved ovens to women fish smokers, made studies on the consumption of wood in traditional bakeries. We have also worked to influence renewable energy policies both at the country level and at the African level through advocacy actions.
Since the death of Mrs. Claudia AMEGANKPOE in August 2014, the local structure has ceased to shine. Our goal is to revive the local NGO alliance for clean cooking in Benin. The actors have undergone major changes and it is important that this crucible can resume federating the actions of CSOs for clean cooking.
