Volunteer Togo

Whilst there are volunteer work opportunities in Togo the fact that it has only recently emerged as a tentative democracy since 2007 has hampered progress in a country ranked in 159th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country with a life expectancy of just over 57yrs.

NGOs and other volunteer organisations are now returning to the country where half of all children live under the international poverty line and one out of every thirty children in Togo die of the preventable disease

malaria ~ yet nets costs under a pound. Its a sad fact that where people have lived under harsh regimes that harshness almost becomes part of their DNA and certainly children in Togo are seen as having no rights and physical punishment of any perceived misdemeanours results in savage and response. This is mainly due to a very firmly held traditional belief that regards children in Togo as property.

It is common therefore to see volunteer work projects not just addressing issues such as HIV/AIDS where 68,000 have been orphaned by the virus with a further 10,000 infected themselves but also in child support and empowerment work although most report it is hard going given these traditional beliefs.
