Despite Benin's worst flooding in recent history, which inundated two-thirds of the West African country this past fall, UNICEF-supported education initiatives survived. In 1994, UNICEF and the Government of Benin created a community-based pre-school initiative to provide children with a strong foundation for entering primary school which continues to thrive to this day.
