Your Campus Connection
Togo has experienced a long period of socio-political crisis that has unfortunately reinforced the declining standard of living of the population with consequent wastage and lack of responsibility by some parents towards their children. Moreover, some children are abandoned or left school, and are left to themselves due to extreme poverty. Faced with this situation, some civil society organizations have established training centers for disadvantaged young people to give them a better and brighter future.
The volunteer project will support such centres, which train young people in masonry, joinery, welding, sculpture, batik, sewing, painting, weaving.
Volunteers’ tasks include:
• To help the trainers to manage young people during the training,
• To work with young people in the different workshops;
• To organize cultural and artistic activities;
• To assist the trainers in their daily work with young people.
The volunteers are invited to present typical cultural aspects of their country. The duration of the work is six hours per day. The volunteer can join courses of percussions, dances, etc. in their free time.
Duration of the project: 1 - 12 months. Volunteers are expected to arrive at the beginning of the month (from 1st to 5th of the month) because of the training week session for each project.
