National day of Togo in Vienna

To celebrate the national day of Togo, the Togolese honorary consul in Austria, Erich Szabo, invited us to a celebration at the Grand Hotel in Vienna on April 26th. Besides us, our friends from Tailoring Togo and many more people who engage in Togo attended the event that day. Thank you for the invitation and the lovely celebration, and thanks for honouring us during your opening speech! We are proud to be part of this community! It was nice to have the opportunity to exchange with other organisations, build up our network, and enjoy the day honouring Togo.




International Worker’s Day: 1st of May 2018

One of Education Togo’s main goals is the empowerment of women in our communities. Therefore, we are running five associations of savings banks, where groups of women pay a share every end of the week. At some point, they are permitted to take out a grant if they need funding for a special investment. The bank-project is self-financing and independent, Education Togo only has to provide technical assistance.

On the 1st of May, the International Worker’s Day, our communities reflected on the progress made so far and remembered the importance of promoting independence and entrepreneurship amongst women. This project is meant to support our women in achieving these goals for themselves as well as for their daughters.

We are looking forward to watch these groups grow bigger and bigger and see the positive outcome of their work.
