Country: Togo

Serving Togo Through Lifeline

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.

About Togo

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 VTP are sustainable farming, breeding animals, trade and spiritual formation. 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 vision for long term sustainability. Through 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.

How You Can Help

(un)adopted’s partner in Togo saw a particular need to help equip older orphaned children who would soon be aging out of the system with desperately needed life skills. In response to this, the partner formed a program that specializes in training these children/young adults in three specific areas: Agriculture (corn), Farming (animal breeding), and Trades. This program also incorporates evangelism and discipleship courses as well. In the past it has been conducted 2 times a year, with each training being 10 days. There are three orphanages that have been involved with this program in the past, impacting over 200 children.
