René Dupéré, musical creator for Cirque du Soleil, and his partner Élise Velle, solo singer and interpreter of Cirque du Soleil's music, have been involved with a humanitarian aid project in Benin for the past 7 years. They finance and supervise the project, and travel twice, every year, to Porto Novo, the capital city of Benin, to see how activities are proceeding.

The goal of this project is to get women out of poverty and accompany them as they progress towards taking charge of their own development. We will follow their journey and meet many of the women whose lives have been dramatically changed, for the better.
