It is an initiative of the Adrien Houngbédji Foundation for Youth, Digital and Artificial Intelligence, in partnership with the Fondation Vallet de France, and the Agence francophone de l'intelligence artificielle (Afria), which aims to introduce young Beninese to Artificial Intelligence in order to improve their know-how.
Adrien Houngbédji Foundation
The Adrien Houngbédji Foundation for Digital and Youth (FAHNJ) aims to promote, in Benin and Africa, initiatives and innovations in the development of information and communication technologies.
Vallet de France Foundation
The Vallet Foundation was created in 1999 under the aegis of the Fondation de France by Odon Vallet and his brother Jean-Daniel. At the heart of the approach of this eminent professor at the University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne, Doctor of Law and Science of Religions, was the idea of donating a large inheritance to benefit the education of underprivileged young people, in particular by choosing courses and countries that receive little support from other sources.
French-speaking Agency for Artificial Intelligence
From its headquarters in Geneva, AFRIA manages the various departments (agriculture, health, education, urban planning...) and is active in various countries, mainly in Africa.
It already has an office in Paris and plans to open offices in some capitals in Africa, Europe and North America in the near future. In African countries, AFRIA relies on local organizations and resources for the organization of operations and activities.
