Togo, located in West Africa, is a country saturated with poverty, making it very hard to access any education. Consequently, many children are often forced into sexual exploitation and hard labor. Living under these circumstances makes it difficult for children to form the job and life skills needed to remove themselves from those hard places.
How We Help
In Togo, (un)adopted® is working with local partners on a Vocational Training Program (VTP) aimed at helping transform the lives of orphans through life skills training and most importantly, the Good News of the Gospel. The four main areas of focus for the VTP are sustainable farming, breeding animals, trade and spiritual formation. The VTP is held three times a year in partnership with local orphanages and community leaders. We are thankful for our local partners in Togo who share with (un)adopted’s strong vision for long term sustainability. Through the VTP trainings, local leaders are equipped and able to train older orphans to breed animals, grow crops and market and trade their goods. With the money earned, students are able to put resources back into their own gardens as well as back into the VTP to keep it sustainable.
