History of CARE International’s work in Togo
CARE International began operations in Togo in 1986 with the Zio River Economic Development project. Today, we work with communities to improve access to water infrastructure, agroforestry, and livelihoods, and we partner with national organizations to help prevent the trafficking of children for sexual exploitation and child labour.
What CARE International does in Togo
In Togo, CARE International works primarily with women and girls. We work with women to increase their access to savings and loans and with girls facing exploitative child labor to gain access to education. We also focus on raising awareness around family planning and HIV prevention, as well as improving access to quality essential health services for women and young children.
CARE Benin/Togo is a joint office that responds to both countries and is headquartered in Cotonou, Benin.
