at a Bazar in Köln-Weiden
It was a colourful view of the first products made by our trainees. The proceeds went to our association.
8 apprentices for more understanding of hygiene
First they were at the Lycée de Zébévi in Aného this week at the end of June. The headmaster called us. The school is back in operation again, subject to the rules of distance. But unfortunately the young people lack the understanding of hygiene like washing their hands and wearing masks. Only other young people from their own country and former students of Lyza, now trainees at KTGW.can help. Within a few days they stood in the school classes with banners and posters and reminded for the necessary solidarity for old and young and hygiene.
The press and radio followed the campaign in order to spread it further through their media.
Benjamin as carpenter and Ayité as secretary and accountant did it! They successfully completed their trainings. 2 other young women, Ranietou and Anatou from our training project in Atakpamé were also able to celebrate their graduation as secretaries/ accountants. We will continue to support them in on their way to professions.
are active in our nationwide training project, from Lomé to Dapaong, closely accompanied and supported by our local mentors and regular visits by our chairman. The majority of them have completed the second Training year started.
All trainees prepare themselves with great commitment for jobs in carpentry and construction engineering, Metalworking, Mechanical/Electrical engineering and electronics/informatics, in accounting and hotel management and tourism, in housekeeping/ gastronomy, Haute couture and hairdressing and medical assistance and agriculture.
FIRST CAMPAIGN AGAINST CORONA
Instead of doing nothing at home, our seamstresses sewed masks for mouth and nose like mad, other trainees bought soaps, handker-chiefs and bags, other trainees put the sets together. And now they have streamed out to their neighbourhoods to raise awareness for more hygiene and distribute the sets.
Not easy and yet it was done! Also the rules like keeping distance, wearing mouthguards etc. have to be observed. We are proud of our trainees!
LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE FOR OUR
INTERNATIONAL and CROSS-FRONTIER
TRAINING CENTRE in Dévikinme
The village and the whole surrounding area were actively involved, as were our apprentices. Our chairman reminded in front of other guests from administration, politics and educational institutions of the task of all to promote the talents of the youth and to give them the necessary freedom.
With the celebration of the laying of the foundation stone it was connected to win many officials, possible further sponsors, the villagers and above all the young people for our ambitious idea. More about the idea of our training centre in an interview for Radio Victoire FM/Togo.
We wanted to start construction in July 2020. Unfortunately, everything is delayed by the corona crisis and we have to wait until early 2021. We hope very much!
A time together as a 3-week internship in Togo was in March 2018
supported by the learning workshop for teacher training at Uni Siegen and our association.
18 students from Germany together with 10 students from Togo have experienced the country, people, culture, shared excursions and made creative workshops at schools in Togo.
They were accompanied by the whole board of our association and also by our coordinators living in Togo.
In August 2018, many students in Togo got to know how to play the German dodgeball. They didi with enthusiasm.
At the 3 workshops in Aneho, Kpalimé and Lomé we met highly motivated students and teachers who would now like to carry Völkerball further to their country.
After a year it became a sport of German clubs. With small sums and donations in kind, we enable tournaments between schools.
