Located in French-speaking West Africa, the city of Allada is home to La Casa Grande Benin, a Christian ministry for children who need food, shelter and a family. 

This Youth Venture team will have the opportunity to become a part of this family participating in vibrant worship, dancing, teaching English, sports and art projects. Participants will also visit cultural sites, like Ganvie on Lake Nokou√© (a village built on stilts) and the Slave Road leading to the beach where prisoners were loaded as cargo onto ships headed for Europe and the Americas.
