In Togo, a large number of people are still unaware of the basic gestures involved in rescuing people who are victims of a road accident or an incident affecting the physical body. Given that this situation has become increasingly alarming in recent times, the NGO ASTOVOT is setting up a life-saving training and awareness-raising project this summer. The project involves raising awareness and training road users in lifesaving techniques, so that they can learn the basics of first aid in the event of traffic accidents or other incidents (trauma, cardiac arrest, bleeding, etc.).

To train national and international volunteers in first aid so that they in turn become trainers for the project.
To raise awareness and train people in life-saving techniques through practical demonstrations at various parking areas in the town;
Organise a mass awareness-raising and training session for the public and motorbike taxi drivers in a public square.

Volunteers take part in the centre's activities.
Volunteers will first be trained by other volunteers who have first aid experience;
The trained volunteers will in turn train road users in various first aid modules;
To mark the end of the project, the volunteers will organise a mass awareness and training event in the commune to demonstrate the various aspects of first aid that have been covered by the project;

Accommodation is generally basic, simple and specific to the project location. On site, volunteers are accommodated in groups of three or four people per room. The number of people per room depends on how the volunteers themselves organise the group. In some places, volunteers can use dry toilets and showers without water inside. This means that volunteers will have to 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 site.
During the work camp, the volunteers will cook their own meals. An internal organisation will create groups that will alternate to carry out the various domestic tasks domestic tasks, including cooking. The food products used for cooking are imported, local and organic. The diet of each volunteer will be taken into taken into account when preparing meals. Volunteers will have access to tropical fruit such as bananas, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, avocados, papayas, etc. Along side the main activities of the work camp, other activities are organised, such as discovery walks, hikes, festive outings and cultural encounters. These activities enable the volunteers to come into contact with the local population and to discover Togolese culture.

Kpalimé is about an hour and a half's drive from Lomé and is set in a beautiful natural environment. Located in south-west Togo, the area surrounding the town is lush and fertile, encircled by thickly wooded hills, deep valleys and small farming villages. Kpalimé is also the country's most important craft centre, home to a large number of artists and craftsmen: woodcarvers, batikeur, potters, weavers, calabash-makers, etc. The many "nature" walks and hikes take you along the paths to discover the daily life of the local people, who live mainly from agriculture.

The NGO Association Togolaise des Volontaires au Travail (ASTOVOT) has more than 60 years of experience in international voluntary service. Each year, it welcomes many volunteers from all over the world on short, medium and long term volunteer projects (3 weeks to 12 months) in Togo. These projects allow the national volunteers (about 200) to work hand in hand with the international volunteers and to create a real intercultural exchange throughout the year. ASTOVOT is a member of the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVSUNESCO) and of the Network of Africa Voluntary Organizations (NAVO), and is in partnership with several volunteer organizations in Europe, Asia, the United States, Canada and Africa. Its projects focus on community development through the promotion of education and citizenship, health, social, environmental protection and intercultural learning, renovation and construction of socio-community infrastructures.

There is a member of our organisation who is in charge of welcoming volunteers at Lomé airport. He will take care of your accommodation in Lomé.
- The price of a taxi between the airport and the bus station or the hotel varies between 6000 and 10000 FCFA (between 9 and 15 €) ,
- Transportation is by bush taxi or a bus that takes you to Kpalimé. The ASTOVOT headquarters is the meeting place for the volunteers and also the starting point for the workcamp.
The distance between Lomé-Kpalimé is 121 km and the durationis 1h 45 to 2h drive. The price of a taxi between Lomé and Kpalimé is 3000 FCFA at the parking places (4,7€). But there are often surcharges. We advise volunteers to buy two places so as not to be too tight in the car.

The languages of the project are French and then English. However, we recommend that volunteers who are not French-speaking have a basic knowledge of French before they arrive, as the official language of Togo is French. The vast majority of local volunteers and local communities have a very poor level of English.
