THE BENIN CULTURAL HERITAGE CENTRE (BCHC)

PREAMBLE

 

The Benin / Edo race was well known to be civilized and developed culturally, politically, socially and economically as documented in the works of Arts and Literature worldwide since 14 century. Today the remains of the old Benin Empire is plagued by under-development, disunity, loss of language, disregard for our culture and other consequences of the Benin Massacre of 1897. To achieve a turn around to the old glory, this body, a non-governmental, not for profit, a non-partisan social-cultural organization called ” THE BENIN CULTURAL HERITAGE CENTRE” (BCHC) was formed
