Education Togo – an overview
Our goal is simple yet ambitious: we want to improve the education of children and young people in Togo by building schools.
The Togolese Republic (Togo) is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. Our motto is “for local people, by local people”. A proactive and committed community as well as strong cooperation is what we expect to lie at the heart of our projects. Our task is to help the local communities fulfill their dream of disposing of a proper school.
Education Togo regards itself as the promoter of the community and the facilitator of the respective project. Therefore, Education Togo always strives to involve the local children, parents and teachers, as well as the community‚ administrative institutions and influential personalities in every stage of the project. Education Togo also works with local volunteers, who permanently live and work in Togo. Eventually, we want to ensure that the schools are appreciated and maintained so that they provide children with education for many years. Thus, the projects are triggered and implemented by the local communities and funded and overseen by Education Togo. This is how we hope to enable the communities to live a better, healthier and well-educated life.
Why is our set-up so special?
Firstly, we have team members who live and work on-site, constantly communicate with locals and have excellent contacts in the region as well as with other NGOs. They are part of a network of knowledge, information and skills. These team members are constantly informed about the progress on the construction site and have the possibility to solve any difficulties which might arise. Thus, we ensure the supervision during the implementation stage and we can guarantee that all donations serve their designated purpose.
Secondly, we only develop projects based on ideas from the community itself, proactively supported by locals and checked for feasibility by our team members. This is how we ensure that our projects are not only accepted, but sustainably integrated in their environment and coordinated with the local needs, so that in the end every donation contributes to successful implementation.
Thirdly, we are a highly motivated, competent team, which has experience in project management and development work. Besides, we dispose of a large network of supporters in Europe and the USA, including professional individuals, companies and universities. Since our team works on an exclusively honorary basis, we guarantee that every donated cent will benefit the projects.
