A community that gives meaning to life with projects in the service of our humanitarian actions.
"In Togo, our mission is to help everyone to give meaning to their humanity through the accompaniment, human and spiritual formation of young people; adult couples and families.
Through our development projects, we give a future to street children (ANGE), we train actors who initiate change (IFF AFRICA), we fight against AIDS (JADE for Life), we develop rural areas through vocational training and school creation (SICHEM). We also promote quality education (SUCCES+)".
I got to know Fondacio when I began my socio-professional life thanks to the meetings of exchange and reflection in the neighbourhoods with the youth cell. Having trained in Political Sociology and Communication, I wanted to dedicate myself to organizations that work for the well-being of Man, where the impact on people's lives is visible.
Fondacio and its projects have made this possible. And, today I work in the Project Success+ to improve the success rate of children from poor families. The child's success at school nourishes my commitment to make the most disadvantaged happy and fulfilled.
Today, my greatest motivation is to meet other people who are just as committed to the same cause in order to help people at the grassroots level to get back on their feet.
In charge of Fondacio in TOGO
In 2004, when I was a volunteer facilitator at the NGO ANGE in Lomé, I had the extraordinary encounter with Fondacio Togo during a youth forum linked with an Ado camp organized in Aného, near the border with Benin. This meeting nourished the person in charge that I am today because what I had as a commitment for the well-being of children living in precarious situations had just been completed: I give and I receive in return by living my faith to the full.
And since February 2019, I have been in charge of Fondacio in Togo. My commitment has been a "YES" of docility to the call of the Lord and to what has always marked me as an identity as a human being: Service!
My responsibility is a voluntary service. It is a gift of self that is very demanding in my precariousness and my limits as a young person always in search of meaning in life, but oh how awakening.
My gratitude to all the little drops of water that come to nourish and shape my river. I am not alone. Peace be upon you and be blessed for each of your acts of closeness.
