CCPD RESPONSES TO COVID-19

For over a decade, we've promoting access to clean water, safe sanitation and hygiene. We had established more than 13 wells, 13 VIP and 20 ecological toilets established in rural communities of Kpalimé. Learn more.
In this time of Covid-19, expanding on that work has become more important than ever. Help us...

Provide clean water

The Covid-19 pandemic has shifted the practice of washing one’s hand from a ‘’should’’ to a ‘’must’’. Although the habit seems outwardly simple, establishing a consistent routine can be difficult for people with limited access to water and handwashing device.
We are looking for support for the construction of water supplies like the ferro-cement water tanks in order to store rainwater collected from roofs in order to secure water for washing hands in homes and places of public attendance. Read more.

Grow more food

Food and nutritional insecurity is the major cause of the dropout of children in Togo. This food insecurity is due to the fact that crop reserves are running out sooner than expected because farmers sell their crops to earn money to afford scholastic materials. There is a need to set up stocks of food, typically basic provisions and nonperishable items, which will be supplied to people in need free of charge in time of food shortage. 
This project aims to enhance livelihood and income opportunities with sustainable agriculture and other non-farm activities. Read more.

Provide access to online school


The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed to many schools of developing countries the need to develop a website and home schooling online. It has also revealed the urgency for every poor child and family to have a computer and access the internet at home. The level of urgency is so high considering the number ever increasing of out of school youths roaming the streets and young girls at risk of dropping out of school; pregnancy and early marriage. Read more.

Increase access to sanitation facilities


The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the importance of ecological sanitation up to date. In these times of high demand in water due to the practice of hand washing, urine-diversion and VIP latrines can save people on water bills. When these latrines are used no water is needed. However, in many less privileged communities, existing (old, abandoned or uncompleted) WASH facilities are inappropriate for use, unless refurbished.

Promoting elearning for youths in Togo


As part of COVID 19 Response Initiative, CCPD seeks grants from donors across the world to support CCPD Covid-19 Response Initiative that aims at enhancing the capacity of schools in Togo to ensuring continuous training for young people under 12 years via internet.


The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the gap in technological skills between the western and emerging countries. The need for students to learn online from home has never been as acute as it is today. This pandemic has revealed the urgency for every poor child and family to have a computer and access the internet at home.


In the Covid-19 context, this program is innovative and the solution proposed very unique. It is an ambitious project that will revolutionize education in Togo.

If you are interested in this program and you want to get more details, please feel free to contact us.

TOURISM IN TOGO



Togo is an exceptionally beautiful, and the people here are super friendly. If you prefer the road less traveled, CCPD has attractive destinations for you. And that’s precisely what makes it ideal for those who prefer to explore places off the beaten track! It is a great diversity of landscapes ranges from lakes and palm-fringed beaches along the Atlantic coastline to the rolling forested hills in the center; heading further north, the mantle of lush forest is replaced by the light-green and yellow tinges of savannah.

Togo is probably one of the nicest places in Western Africa. Roads are pretty good, distances small, beaches sandy and white, people friendly, hills and mountains waiting to be explored. The capital city, Lomé is an excellent place to start your trip. Lots of daytrips are arranged by CCPD.

Togo is an excellent playground for hikers – there's no better eco-friendly way to experience the country's savage beauty than on foot. Kpalime is a beautiful hilly area perfect for trekking and hiking. In Togo, you will fall in love with colors, sights, sounds, and tastes. Though it is one of the smallest countries in Africa, Togo is proof that small is better.
