SICHEM a project by Fondacio in Togo
Sichem was initiated in 1989 in Kpomé - Dzogblakopé, 20 kilometres away from Lomé, Sichem is a farmers' group for self-promotion, production and support for villagers that works towards sustainable development in rural areas.
In 2001, a new association, AGRO-DR, was added to it, more specifically in charge of promoting actors and village development.
Conceived as a school farm and a laboratory for initiatives, the Sichem / AGRO- DR group is involved in school education, vocational training (agriculture and livestock, building trades), construction, village community animation (definition and organization of economic development plans, water supply, etc.), agricultural production (agricultural production chains, reforestation, livestock, etc.), product processing and reception at the centre.
