We deeply mourn the loss of our first chairman Ulrich Scharf.
with great gratitude we look back on the time we were allowed to spend with you. You have been an essential pillar of our association from the start. But most of all you were a wonderful friend. We will miss the mutual discussions, your advice in all situations, your humor and your unwavering optimism.
Your visit to Benin and Yaoui in early 2014 meant a lot to you and was also extremely important for the association. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that, too. We hope you are well at the place you are now. Maybe you look down on us from time to time and remind us of your motto: Don’t panic!
Ulrich Scharf left us on March 13, 2020 after a long illness.

A cultural science symposium was held in Yaoui from 20-23 December 2018. The aim was to gather knowledge about the important archaeological site of Etoo, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the village of Yaoui. Fort Etoo is of great historical importance to the population of the region.

The next symposium will take place from 19.-20. December 2019. Currently there is a call for papers (open until October 30, 2019).
