Hey FOB! I am about to head off to Benin in a couple of weeks as a new trainee. I would love to read stories, see pictures, and get any advice before leaving!

I'm a RPCV from Madagascar (1998-2000) heading to Benin March 20, to do sound for a promotional film for Espace Afrique's CIEVRA research center. CIEVRA seems to have programs that overlap with PC goals there. Can anyone tell me how to find the PCVs in Benin? 857-231-1768
