Cercle Social was initiated in late 2010 by expatriates from Benin living in USA, France, and Canada. Cercle Social requested $4,836 from the AllPeopleBeHappy foundation in May of 2012, to build a computer lab in the high school of Tori Agouako in Benin. A grant of $5,000 was used to purchase and shipped the lab’s equipment, consisting of computers, copier, projector, and power supplies. The school provided the classroom space. The lab opened in November of 2012 with great fanfare and now computer training classes are being conducted for the 1,700 students six days a week.
