Care & Community in Togo

Our Care & Community project is based in Lomé, the vibrant capital city of Togo. This is a great project for anyone who loves working with children and who also wants to do some hands on renovation work.

In the mornings, volunteers will work in either an orphanage or day care centre doing basic educational activities with the children. Volunteers also help with games and day-to-day work such as feeding the children.

In the afternoons, volunteers will get the opportunity to do some light renovation work at a local school or community building project.

Volunteers will stay with local host families to get a real taste of Togolese culture. Throughout the trip volunteers will have the chance to take part in djembe drum classes, learn local crafts, and also have an introductory lesson in the Ewe language.

During the weekend volunteers will take a trip to Kpalimé, a mountain village surrounded by cocoa plantations. This will give volunteers a chance to explore the scenery, visit waterfalls, and see a more traditional, rural way of life.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
