Vocational training centre in Togo needs help!

Many thanks for your support, which meant we were able to complete the project successfully.
project summaryQualified and motivated teachers are needed so that the training programmes can continue to be offered. Help to secure the salary for the training centre in Togo with a donation of CHF 50.


The Swiss association SWEET has built up a training centre in Togo over the last few years. The centre is run by local people. With good vocational training, Togolese men and women can build a future for themselves in their own homeland. The SWEET association provides financial support and professional guidance. The Togolese Swiss, Essodinam Alitiloh, grew up in Togo and is the bridgebuilder who carefully observes and accompanies the processes in Togo.
The operations of the vocational training centre are constantly being expanded and developed. Currently, around 100 Togolese are completing their three-year training in various classes. In June 2021, 14 candidates from the first course have successfully completed their training. In addition to the specific training in one of the three professions (farmer, bricklayer and electrician), the trainees receive a general education.
Our vocational training centre is still not financially supported by the government. The income from the agricultural products that we produced have made a modest contribution to the running costs so far. The continuation of the training is therefore still dependent on donations from Switzerland.

At some point, the vocational training centre should no longer depend on Swiss donations. However, this requires a great deal of persistence. It is important that the teachers can assume financial security. This way, they continue to be committed to the school and can secure their family's livelihood. The students depend on the school being maintained. For them, education is the basis for their future independence.
Therefore, securing the salaries of our teachers is a priority for us. We have a qualified, pedagogically trained local team of teachers and we want to continue working with them.

The donations are used directly for the teachers so that they have financial security and can contribute to the continuation and further development of the school. Only if we can pay our great and motivated team adequately, we can continue to provide education for the young people. Our teaching team consists of 6 permanent teachers:
KOULOUN Kassang Essossinam (headmaster), BAYAMBA Kalao (technical teacher for electrical engineering), LAKOUGNON Patapouwé (technical teacher for agriculture), MOUZOU Essolakina (technical teacher for agriculture), PATAKO Essodjolo (technical teacher for bricklaying), KABRAN Makli (caretaker, security).
Additional eight teachers are working on a lesson-by-lesson basis. We thank you very much for your donations and support of the training centre.
