Mothers from Benin and Senegal share an exchange visit organized by World Education in Benin.  Women from Senegal’s Rural Association Against HIV/AIDS (ARLS in French) visited three schools in Benin to learn about mothers’ associations, which allow mothers and other women in the community to gain decision-making power in school management issues.
