Organisation of you stay

How can I prepare for my voluntary service?

In Togo, you will encounter lots of friendly people who will welcome you open-heartedly. Time and again, our volunteers tell us how much they enjoy the people's open-mindedness and friendliness in our West-African country. However, you will find yourself in a completely unknown environment. Learning a few useful terms in Ewe, the local language, might be an advantage for you. Furthermore, doing some research about Togo and its population may also be of help. 


The location of your project is likely to be the city of Kpalimé.

Overview of the costs

First four weeks in total:

After we have reached an agreement about your field of activity and the period of time that you will stay with us, you can book a flight to Lomé, the country's capital, yourself. We will pick you up at the airport (about a 2.5-hour drive to Kpalimé). In case your flight arrives after 5 pm, we will organize a night at a hotel for you and the person who looks after you. For this scenario, you would need to pay an extra amount of EUR 100.00.
