We support young people and their educational opportunities in Togo and connect people from Germany and Togo with social and cultural initiatives. We are a non-profit association based in Cologne and work exclusively on a voluntary basis.
STUDENTS FOR STUDENTS
A joint time as a three-week internship in Togo in March 2018 was supported by the Lernwerkstatt Lehrerbildung Uni Siegen and our association.
18 students from Germany together with ten students/ high school graduates from Togo experienced together country, people and culture, went on excursions together and designed creative workshops at schools in Togo.
They were accompanied by the entire KTGW board and by our coordinators on site in Togo.
If everything goes well, the Lernwerkstatt Uni Siegen will initiate a new exchange with KTGW.
VÖLKERBALL / DOGDEBALL
With enthusiasm, many students in Togo learned about Völkerball (Dogdeball)and played it in August 2018.Völkerball for better internatianal understanding!
At the three workshops in Aneho,
Kpalimé and Lomé, we met highly motivated students and teachers who now want to take Völkerball/ dodgeball further into their country.
In the meantime it has become a sport of the German clubs. With small donations in kind, we support tournaments between the schools.

FIRST CORONA-ACTION 2020
Hygiene Kits (Kit d'hygiène)!
Instead of doing nothing at home in the first lockdown, our trainee tailors sewed mouth-nose protection masks like mad, other trainees bought soaps, handkerchiefs and bags, other trainees assembled the kits in our association office. They went out into their neighborhoods to promote hygiene.
Not easy, but they did it! Also to comply with the regulations such as keeping a distance, wearing a mouth guard, etc.
In the fall of 2019 we were able to sell some products of our traineeslike lemongrass tea at a Christmas bazaar in Cologne.The proceeds benefited our association.
In 2020 the bazaar had to be cancelled due to Covid19. Our budding seamstresses had sewn many colorful bags, which are now not only available in Togo, but also with us on request.
