AGRICULTURAL PROJECT


One of BBI’s goals is to provide occupational training for the students in different trades alongside their theological training.

This goal was slow in getting off the ground due to lack of funding. The idea is to provide students and other Christian ministers, whether or not they participate in BBI’s training programs, with the skills to develop revenue generating activities particularly in the agricultural sector. In keeping with this vision BBI hopes to develop a multi-purpose campus for agricultural training on its titled property of 4.5 ha in Oumako that will offer the students and their families a new form of pastoral training. In addition, this innovative experiment will equip Christian ministers who have to support themselves due to the impoverished socio-economic conditions. The project will enable them to earn additional income.

_The agricultural complex that will be built will serve as a model in Benin for the way it supports and accompanies the Benin Bible Institute.

After several years of incubation, the agricultural activities finally began in 2012 on our property in Oumako. The first major step was the drilling of a well made possible through the assistance of the NGO GAIN which for a modest sum provided this vital infrastructure for our activities.

Some activities completed over the course of 2012 :

-  The supervisor’s residence was built, enabling him to move onto the property

-  A security guard was hired

-  The poultry barn was half-finished

-  Rabbit and poultry livestock was purchased

-  Market gardening was begun, but only on a small scale because there is not sufficient water for large scale activities. We still need to install equipment to drain the water and make it more accessible.
