In a country made up of 10.32 million people, 61% being youth and 52% being women, Benin is seeing an increased rate of unemployment. To address this great need , to encourage the creation of social enterprises as well as to promote and expose already existing enterprises, Ayé Fémi Cynthia Sara Idohou has created the Social Entrepreneurship Fair in the country’s largest city of Cotonou. The project will offer a platform for social enterprises to showcase their services and train the youth and women on how to build their own sustainable startups.
