In order to participate in TechSoup Benin programs and services, an organization must be validated by TechSoup as an organization operating on a nonprofit basis for the public benefit.
In order to successfully complete the validation review in Benin, an organization must be:
- Organizations must be non-governmental organizations (NGOs) (organisations non gouvernementales – ONG) or associations (associations) recognized by or declared with local authorities; or foreign NGOs (ONG étrangères) operating with a headquarters Agreement with the Interministerial Committee.
In order for TechSoup to validate your organization, you will need to provide sufficient evidence that your organization holds the above status. This may include a certificate of registration or incorporation, inclusion in an official government registry or database, and/or a copy of your organization’s governing documents.
To initiate the validation review process, the organization should register on this website and provide all requested information. A designated TechSoup representative will review the provided details and determine if the registered organization meets the requirements established in the localized definition.
Please note that validated organizations are also subject to any additional eligibility criteria required by specific programs or service offerings being applied for.
