PROJECT DESCRIPTION Since 2014 ASTOVOT has initiated a cultural project called “Festival Kékéli”. KéKéli means "Light" in Ewé and want to be a crossroads of cultural expression and popular education. Every summer, many volunteers are welcomed to this international workcamp in order to discover the richness of Togolese culture in all its diversity.

For ASTOVOT it is about bringing art and culture as close as possible to people who live in rural areas, to make them move, sing, dance, laugh and make people smile. The theme chosen this year for the festival is "cultural diversity, a pillar of social cohesion and peace". Apart of the festival, several other activities are organized by the volunteers, in particular: sanitation actions in the village hosting the festival, a football competition for young girls, awareness-raising actions in ecological practices, etc. PROJECT OBJECTIVES  To offer an intercultural exchange through the immersion in peasant families and the promotion of cultural, artistic and artisanal heritage.  To value popular culture and to allow folk and traditional groups to gain visibility by programming of a brilliant closing show.  To raise awareness of the fragility of the ecosystems balance and to promote ecological practices.  To remove gender stereotypes, specially regarding cultural and artistic subjects.
