Useful information for volunteers
You want to join us in Togo and experience life in the African bush? Do not hesitate. Come and help us!
To consider :
- Visa: Togo requires a visa that can be paid by entering the country 20,000F for a month. Visa renewal is easily done at the migration office.
- Official language: French
Local language (spoken in the region): Ewé
Languages spoken on the project: French, English, Spanish, Ewé
- Vaccines (yellow fever is compulsory, typhoid fever and hepatitis are highly recommended).
Sometimes we have tools, machines we no longer use, which we almost forgot, in the back of the garage. Others could make great use of it. In Togo, it is sometimes difficult to find good machines and good mechanical tools. If you would like to donate tools, do not hesitate to let us know. We can go to you to recover these wonders and make them arrive to Togo.
Candidates must have a great willingness to help! Indeed, life in the bush is not the easiest. Living conditions are precarious. At the moment we do not have electricity, access to drinking water is limited, we cook on the wood fire and the accommodation is camping style. We hope that soon we can welcome you in better conditions. There is also the possibility to rent accommodation in a village at 40 min from the project.
All the seeds interest us to increase the biodiversity of the project (trees, shrubs, vegetable crops). If you would like to donate seeds do not hesitate to write to us. However, all seeds will be studied for the risks of spreading in the environment.
On the project we do very varied activities, planting trees, vegetable garden, bio-construction, installation of sustainable technologies. If you have knowledge in the field or want to learn about the subject, you are welcome.
We try to often organize activities to harmonize our community relations (yoga, drum circle, ceremony, painting, games, meditation, music, aerial dance). Everyone is free to share his activities with others.
