Knowledge is power!

A brief description of the NGO

Public schools in Togo face many challenges affecting the quality and effectiveness of teaching, including :
 80 to 90 pupils per class,
 Teacher absenteeism due to pay issues
 Lack of teaching materials.

The aim of “l’Association des Amis de Yanfouom” (“Friends of Yanfouom”) is to support “Yanfouom - La Sagesse”, a private secular school set up in Togo by Martine Sinandja (*) in the year 2000, to complement the failings of schools in the public sector.
It is a very passionate initiative with equality at the core of everything : sponsorship of children from disadvantaged backgrounds, gender and religious balance in classrooms and teaching staff, as well as hiring of people with disabilities.
