Basic education and prevention of child abuse
HR&S, S.E.VIE in Togo and Action10 in Sweden have been working with basic education in rural Togo since 2009. Our concept includes approval and support from the parents, home-work teachers, lightening, clothes, uniforms bags and material and a close collaboration with head-masters and teachers.
We have established procedures that ensures that our targeted children pass the exams with 95% success rate. We also address prevention of child abuse through awareness raising sessions.
As a service to our entrepreneurs in Togo the funds are collected every week, as our partners do not have safe places to keep their money. Consequently, a loan can be directly given to another entrepreneur and the total interest becomes more than 10%. This extra profit is used to support basic education. Still remaining to be solved is access to school lunches in a financially sustainable manner.
