Volunteer in Togo

Travel in Togo for a life changing experience !

All our volunteers in Togo are actively involved in local NGOs to help develop the country.

In Togo, classes in schools are taught in French. A lot of adults have never been to school and don’t have the financial means to offer education to their children.


A large part of the population is suffering from malnutrition, poor hygiene and lack of clean water.


Join a humanitarian programme in Togo and live in total immersion with a Togolese family!


Your action as well as the other volunteers and NGOs in Togo will contribute to the local development.

The volunteer programme in Togo !

Volunteering in Togo

The program starts every Monday. The majority of the projects take place in Atakpamé which is the 5th largest city of Togo with 85,000 inhabitants. It is located in the Plateau region, 160 kilometers from the capital. There are also some programs in Sokode and Kara, north of Atakpamé.

You must arrive the day before the start of the mission. If you arrive after 19 hours, you will have to pay for your own hotel stay in Lomé and leave for Atakpamé the next day.

To avoid culture shock, you will follow a local language course during your mission. If you choose to participate in a humanitarian volunteer program in Togo, you will receive a complete guide to the country, the mission, advice and information before leaving. 

Meals and accommodation in Togo !

togo bénévolat globalong

Most of our participants are housed in Togolese host families in a single room with a shared toilet and bathroom.

If you participate in a humanitarian mission volunteer in orphanages, you will be housed at the orphanage itself, either in a single or in a double room with another volunteer.

You will have 3 meals a day (local cuisine).
