Who Is Atacora Essential?


Atacora Essential is the realization of a dream and the culmination of 20 years of experience and learning. Colonialism, economic imperialism, trade policy, misguided development strategies, cultural and climatic factors have systemically brought about glaring poverty and gender inequality in West Africa. Food insecurity, disease, under education and environmental degradation abound. Under the current market and development paradigms, citizens have consistently lacked the voice and power to significantly abate these injustices. Atacora Essential has been conceived as a market based initiative geared to create conditions where African people can acquire the means and knowledge to own and determine their futures, with diminished dependence on external capital and the hegemony of Western ideas.

 Founder and President, David B. Goldman (B.A., M.A.) served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Benin from 1992-1994. He was posted in Boukombé in the mountainous and beautiful Atacora province in the country’s northwest; named for the mountain range that is its most prominent feature. In 1995, he contracted to train incoming Environmental Action Volunteers and then served as an interim Associate Director. As a Volunteer, he worked collaboratively with villagers, youth and women’s groups, other development organizations and Beninese government agencies to design and implement grassroots, participatory community projects, including agro-forestry, dry season gardening, Perm culture and appropriate technology. His acquisition of the local language, Ditammari, greatly facilitated his work and helped forge enduring friendships. He is a twice certified Perm culture Designer. His graduate studies focused on sustainable development and Africa, earning him an M.A. in Environment and Community from Antioch University Seattle in 2007. A subsequent visit to Benin, specifically to Boukombé, solidified his commitment and capacity to co-create with local participants a novel and community driven strategy for economic and social empowerment. This is Atacora Essential!

The ten women and 2+ men of the Atacora Essential cooperative located 10k from Boukombé in the small rural village of Kouporgou are the backbone of the organization. The Fair Trade wages they earn from their efforts sustainably producing, collecting and processing unique indigenous products have already had a remarkable impact on their families’ well being…and they are just getting started!
