PROJECT DESCRIPTION To provide a space for the development and reintegration of young people with family difficulties, ASTOVOT is committed to building, by a crowdfunding system, a shelter for young people in the town of Kpalimé. This center aims to temporarily accommodate adolescents and young people who have dropped out of school or are homeless, offering them the opportunity to continue their education or to learn a profession. Note that this project does not benefit from any overall funding or from a Togolese state grant. It is the volunteer’s participation fees and other the contributions that make possible to finance the construction. The works have some progress, but much remains to be done. We hope to finish the bedroom and the service building in the coming months and start the activity of the center as soon as possible. PROJECT OBJECTIVES  To learn how to work in a team in a coordinated and self-organized way.  To share basic learning about gardening, space maintenance, construction, carpentry, plumbing, electrical systems, etc.  To give value to manual work and reflect on working conditions in the different cultures involved in the field of work.  To work with a gender perspective, especially on stereotypes in construction and maintenance work. MAIN ACTIVITIES - Weeding and maintenance of the project site. - Helping workers in masonry, carpentry, plumbing or electrical work: fetching sand and water, making bricks, cutting wood, intalling dor and window brackets, etc. - Begining the excavation for the fence construction. - Taking care of the green space creation, planting seedlings (mango, coconut, orange trees, etc.).

Accommodatie en maaltijden

ACCOMODATION Housing conditions are generally rudimentary, simple and specific to the location of the project. On site, volunteers are accommodated in groups of three or four people per room. The distribution per room depends on the collective organization of the volunteers themselves. Depending on the location, volunteers can use dry toilets and showers without tap water. The association available to volunteers some plastic or foam mats. Volunteers can bring sleeping bags with them if possible. There is access to drinking water on the site. However, access to electricity and the internet may be limited. This is due respectively to the blackouts and the difficulties of accessing the Internet. FOOD During the entire period of the workcamp, it is the volunteers themselves who prepare their own meals. An internal organization will make it possible to create groups which will alternate to take care of the different household tasks including cooking. Food products used for cooking are both imported and local, and sometimes organic. The diet of each volunteer will be taken into account in the preparation of meals. Volunteers will have access to tropical fruits such as bananas, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, avocados, papayas, etc.

Locatie en vrije tijd

LEISURE In addition to the main activities of the site, several other activities are organized such as discovery walks, hikes, parties or cultural meetings. These activities allow volunteers to get in touch with local populations but also to discover Togolese culture. During the weekends, collective excursions are organized by the volunteers and their leaders to discover the tourist sites of the region where the workcamp is taking place. It should be noted that expenses related to excursions and outings of volunteers are not included in the participation fees. However, the association can facilitate or negotiate transport for volunteers during outings or excursions.


This project requires a great involvement from the volunteers because there is a permanent mobilization of the public around the activities. The volunteers must have a real interest in the themes of interculturality and solidarity.
