A great success at SOS Benin

18 Jul 2019
Once again, all candidates living in SOS families passed the various exams successfully passed the national exams for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a testament to the quality of childcare for a better tomorrow.

Twenty-four children living in SOS families in Abomey-Calavi who have been candidates for the national exams, Certificate of Primary Studies (CEP), Certificate of First Cycle Studies (BEPC) and Baccalaureat, have all passed. At the CEP, the twelve candidates succeeded as well as the eight who passed the BEPC. Most recently, all four-baccalaureate candidates have also succeeded. One hundred percent on three different national exams is a merit. "The children have done a remarkable job. They have followed their teachers religiously throughout the school year and now the results are good," said the Coordinator of the Alternative Care Program, Mr. Sacca Ourougandé, who returned from the training with his children. Bockmayer, a young SOS laureate, added, "All those who have succeeded express their gratitude through me to all the generous donors who think of us and promise to do more.

As every year, the Abomey-Calavi SOS program has a very good result on national exams.
