Volunteer Projects in Togo
Volunteer Projects in Togo
Volunteering in Togo is such a wonderful experience; you have the opportunity to teach and learn at the same time! Dedicating your time, energy and skills as volunteer in Togo is a great way to spend your gap year, career break, or extended vacation. You can gain valuable work experience without any previous experience, and you are not required to have a qualification.
English Teaching Volunteer Work
When you volunteer to teach in Togo, you’ll be given an active role in the classroom. You can also assist students with their homework. You are not required to have a TEFL or TESOL qualification. Your English speaking abilities and enthusiasm are all that is needed to make a difference in schools where there is a lack of conversational English language teaching. The impact you'll have on your students will be obvious as they start to develop their language abilities, but you'll also be part of a much larger network of volunteers, which is making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider community in Togo.
Construction Volunteer Work
The construction volunteer work program is one of our most popular volunteer projects in Togo. With CCPD projects, you will be volunteering in a community. No matter your schedule or your talents you will always get an opportunity to get involved with the construction of school buildings, water and sanitation facilities etc. You are not required to have any building skills; rather you will enjoy working with local volunteers like qualified workers and develop new abilities quickly.
Environment Conservation Volunteer Work
The conservation volunteer work offers to the volunteer a great opportunity to explore life in rural Togo, live and work amongst the locals and make a difference through daily activities such as tree planting, pruning, schools and community tree planting outreaches etc. Volunteers are not required to have any prior experience with environmental or conservation work, however they are essential to this project, proving an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and skilled workforce to pass their knowledge on to an impoverished population who need to protect their natural environment for a sustainable future.

KPALIME, A PLACE WHERE EVERY VOLUNTEER WANTS TO GO
When you choose to volunteer in Togo with Charité Chrétienne pour Personnes en Détresse, you will be living in Kpalimé in Togo. Kpalimé is a city in the Plateaux Region of Togo, 120 km north of Lomé and 15 km from the Ghanaian border. It is the administrative capital of Kloto Prefecture. Kpalimé has a population of 75,084, making it the fourth-biggest town in Togo, after Lomé, Sokodé and Kara. In town is a 1913 German-built church with a tall steeple. A craft center in nearby Kloto features traditional crafts such as woodcarving and batik. To the east, Mount Agou has trails and views across to Ghana. Northwest, on the Ghanaian border, Missahohé Forest is known for its butterflies.
Volunteers in Kpalimé are housed at either, our in-country Coordinator’s home, host family or volunteers’ house, depending on the project site. All accommodation environments allows volunteers to meet other travelers and to get to know each other better outside the work-site and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
The accommodations of course are clean and comfortable and will quickly become your second home. The African and western style toilet and shower facilities are shared between 4 or 10 people and, while we can’t always guarantee the hottest water, the facilities are more than adequate. The accommodation is always equipped with a lounge, TV, Kitchen, hand washing facilities, telephones, and spare electricity sockets. Life at the accommodation facilities is simple, unsophisticated and fun, perfect for unwinding from a busy day!
You will be provided with three good quality meals every day, so you shouldn’t ever feel hungry. The food you will be provided with will consist of delicious local dishes, using fresh produce to create a cultural and tasty experience! Typically your diet will consist of rice, bread, cassava, Ablo, Gboma Detsi, sweet-potatoes, beans, noodles, banana with vegetables such as cabbage, avocado, spinach and eggplant. Water and tea/coffee are included throughout your stay whilst soft drinks (coke, sprite etc) and other beverages can be purchased from the local supermarkets in town.
The hard work volunteers put in during the week undoubtedly warrants some fun and relaxation during evening free time and on the weekends. During the week we organize a variety of activities for volunteers in the evenings. We often play football (soccer), cards and board games or chill out around the bar or go out for a dance getting to know fellow volunteers from around the world. We arrange city day tours and long-weekend beach holidays. No matter your interests, there is always something to enjoy!
