Meet the francophone africa Team

Chabi Eteka is the LCI coordinator in Francophone Africa, based in Benin where he lives with his wife and four teenage children. He has a long association with IFES, extending back to his own student days. In his first year he noticed a few students who lived visibly different lives and shared their faith. When he joined one of them to church one day, he was really impressed by their Bible studies. There he came to faith and soon became involved with GBU Benin, eventually becoming a student leader. He remained involved throughout his undergraduate and PhD studies in Agronomy in Benin and Nigeria, and his ongoing research with international scholars in the area of water and sanitation. He is delighted to serve with the LCI and see the Gospel impacting the University.
