Not without Canal+ Benin

As usual, Canal+ Benin does not trade its support for any initiative highlighting young people. As far as Fejem is concerned, the Group has thus responded to the appeal of the Lsa Foundation, by positioning itself as one of the partners. According to Barnes Pemen Vidjannagni, communications manager, Canal+ Benin is happy to support Fejem. “This is justified by the fact that Canal+ supports, through its sponsorship and Corporate Social Responsibility actions, three strong pillars which are education, training, cinema and sport. Once again, we have an initiative that brings together the majority of this pillar and therefore it is important to support this project and be able to be alongside the Luc Sètondji Atrokpo Foundation to promote and bring the values ​​that the foundation is trying to promote to through this festival,” she said.
