Launched in 2018, the "Support for Youth Entrepreneurship" project is in its 3rd edition this year. Each summer a group of local and international volunteers carry out activities within the framework of this project to support youth entrepreneurship initiatives. Despite the employability programmes set up by the Togolese government to promote youth entrepreneurship, a large majority of young people lack knowledge, technical and financial support. Therefore, ASTOVOT is initiating this project for the third time in order to give them the necessary tools to create and manage their own economic activities.
For this edition, the aim is to identify and support the micro-projects carried out by young girls and women in the commune of Kpalimé by giving them the tools to better manage their activities and make them more profitable.
At the end of the project, at least one (1) of the supported projects will be financially supported through Fundraising. To achieve this, international volunteers willing to participate in this project will be networked with local volunteers to work on Fundraising. The local and international volunteers will choose the winner according to the criteria defined by the group as a whole.

Accommodatie en maaltijden


Housing conditions are generally basic (especially in rural areas). The group is housed together in a house in which the volunteers have to share the rooms (usually 2 to 4 rooms). We have small mattresses and plastic mats that will be used as bedding for the volunteers. Because housing is often not equipped with beds. However, volunteers can provide small air mattresses or small floor mats, sleeping bags, mosquito nets ...etc.
Volunteers prepare their own meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) on site. The dishes are varied and diverse with local and imported ingredients provided. However, the diet of each volunteer is respected and taken into account in the preparation of the meals. During the international days decreed on the workcamp, each group of volunteers (Europeans or Togolese) can present a typical dish from their country or continent.

Locatie en vrije tijd

As part of the international workcamp, several activities are organized: discovery walks, hikes, festive outings, cultural meetings. These activities allow volunteers to get in touch with local populations but also to discover Togolese culture.
During the weekends, group excursions are organized to discover the tourist sites of the region where the construction site is located. It should be noted that the participation (transport, visiting fees and other costs) of these activities are covered by the volunteers themselves.
NB : Internet access and electricity are limited depending on the project areas.


French and English are the two languages of the project. However, French is the official language spoken in Togo. It is advisable for English-speaking volunteers wishing to participate in this project to have a minimum level in French, because a large majority of local volunteers and communities have a low level in English.
