Every summer, ASTOVOT organises, in collaboration with the Village Development Committee (VDC) of the village of Yéviépé, an international workcamp for socio-educational activities and school support for the children of the village. The activities of the workcamp take place both in the new library built by ASTOVOT and in the primary school of the village of Yéviépé. The volunteers not only provide a framework for the development of the children of the village through several recreational and cultural activities, but also give some lessons such as mathematics, English and French to the pupils before the start of the school year. AIMS OF PROJECT - - To improve children's reading, writing and speaking skills in French. This mastery is essential for good progress in other subjects. - - To develop and enhance children's talent in all kinds of subjects from school to sport; - - To improve children's education through cultural exchange on aspects such as tolerance, respect, empathy and appreciation of diversity. PROJECT ACTIVITIES The activities to be carried out are divided into two parts:  The first part will be devoted to tutoring primary and secondary school pupils in subjects where they have more difficulties. The volunteers will help them learn the French language (reading, writing, conjugation, written and oral expression, etc.), mathematics and English, etc.  The second part consists of organising games and various activities in the village library or outside (reading, drawing, song and dance competitions, theatre, slam, etc.), writing a collection of stories, and showing films and documentaries for the children.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

ACCOMMODATION Accommodation is generally basic, simple and specific to the location of the project. On site, volunteers are accommodated in groups of three or four people per room. The number of people per room depends on the collective organisation of the volunteers themselves. Depending on the location, volunteers may use dry toilets and showers without water inside. This implies that the volunteers will fetch water from a fountain or well. The association provides volunteers with plastic or foam mats. Volunteers who have sleeping bags can bring them with them if possible. Access to drinking water on the site. However, access to electricity and internet may be limited depending on the village. This is due to regular load shedding and difficulties in accessing the network respectively. FOOD During the workcamp, the volunteers will cook their own meals. An internal organisation will allow for the creation of groups that will alternate to carry out the different domestic tasks, including cooking. The food products used for cooking are sometimes imported, sometimes local and often organic. The diet of each volunteer will be taken into account in the cooking of the meals. Volunteers will have access to tropical fruits such as bananas, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, avocados, papayas, etc.

Locatie en vrije tijd

In addition to the main activities of the workcamp, other activities are organised such as: discovery walks, hikes, festive outings and cultural meetings. These activities allow the volunteers to come into contact with the local population and to discover the Togolese culture. During the weekends, collective excursions are organised 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 the expenses related to the excursions and the volunteers' outings are not included in the participation fees. However, the association can facilitate or negotiate transport for the volunteers during outings or excursions.


This project requires a great deal of motivation and open-mindedness on the part of volunteers


The languages of the workcamp are French and then English. However, we recommend that non-French speaking volunteers have a basic knowledge of French before their arrival. The official language of Togo is French. The vast majority of local volunteers and communities have a very low level of English.
