Claude Valentin ZanmenouLeaders Africa 2022
National Coordinator, BeninBee
Claude Valentin Zanmenou serves as the national coordinator for BeninBee, a nonprofit organization created by a group of young educators from Porto-Novo. The organization promotes quality education by fostering the development of soft skills and life skills for young adults. His work on the 2019 Benin National Spelling Bee positively impacted over 3,000 secondary school children from five regions of the country. Claude is dedicated to this work because he believes that if individuals develop skills early in life, they will be able to positively change their communities as they grow into adulthood.
