After the project was created by VSA Thailand and has been successful for eight years. Former volunteers came to give the opportunity for children in schools and local community. Many local people improved their English skills through exchanging with international volunteers, or at least they try to speak the English language more and dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, volunteers’ activities impacted local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner.

Despite the evolution of computer use, access to this communication tool is still very limited in Togo's universities, high schools and colleges. A large majority of Togolese pupils and students are not initiated to the use of computers. This becomes a real handicap in their school or university curriculum.
Concerned about this, ASTOVOT is setting up simple and practical introductory courses to computers and the Internet for the benefit of pupils.
This project is open to all volunteers who have a basic knowledge of computers and wish to pass it on to young Togolese. They will be accompanied by a teacher employed by the association.
The volunteer will (among other things) :
✔ Prepare and deliver courses in the use of a computer and its software
✔ Raising awareness of the importance of new technologies
✔ Setting up a training programme

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

International volunteers working on long to medium term projects are accommodated with Togolese host families. The families are chosen according to their proximity to the volunteer's place of work. They provide a private room for the volunteers as well as drinking water and 3 meals a day (meals are adapted according to the diet of each volunteer). The volunteer remains independent and is free to go out and participate in activities of his/her choice. Living with a host family allows a total immersion in Togolese life to discover all its facets.

Lage und Freizeit

In addition to the main activities of the project, other activities are organised such as: discovery walks, hikes, festive outings and cultural meetings. These activities allow the volunteers to come into contact with the local population and to discover the Togolese culture.
During the weekends, collective excursions are organised by the volunteers to discover the tourist sites of the region where the workcamp is taking place. It should be noted that the expenses related to the excursions and the volunteers' outings are not included in the participation fees. However, the association can facilitate or negotiate transport for the volunteers during outings or excursions

Arbeit

Togolese women are very involved in the socio-economic life of the country. Almost all of them have an income-generating activity. However, a large number of them do not have the opportunity to go to school or had to leave school very young. The literacy rate among women is low and they are left to fend for themselves in a system that does not provide them with any support.

In order to respond to this lack and to help women in their community development, Astovot has devised a 4-part programme adapted to their needs;

1. Functional literacy
2. Training and awareness raising
3. Support for cooperatives
4. Organisation of cultural events to promote their work

Volunteers wil (among other things):
✔ Accompany the facilitator in preparing and delivering the classes
✔ Search for speakers and themes for training and awareness raising
✔ Go to the field to interview and understand the needs of local women cooperatives
✔ Propose and deliver entrepreneurial capacity building trainings
✔ Helping to find funding
✔ Set up and design cultural events and activities
✔ Evaluate and participate in the perpetuation of the "women and community development" programme

ASTOVOT's partner orphanages take in children from 5 to 16 years old. The children attend school in the morning and then spend the rest of the day at the orphanage, which provides them with basic education, health care, daily meals and clothing. Due to a lack of funds, orphanages are often understaffed and cannot adequately provide for the needs of the children. Voluntary work is therefore essential.

The partner orphanages are
- Sinai Orphanage
- Gmi Orphanage
- Saint-Martin Orphanage

The volunteer will (among other things) :
✔ Helping staff with daily tasks: meals, clothing, hygiene
✔ Take time to listen, encourage and give hope to children
✔ Provide games, literacy and development activities
✔ Organise outings

NB: The presence of the volunteer is mainly required in the afternoon. It will therefore be proposed to the volunteer to complete his/her schedule with other projects of his/her choice.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

International volunteers working on long to medium term projects are accommodated with Togolese host families. The families are chosen according to their proximity to the volunteer's place of work. They provide a private room for the volunteers as well as drinking water and 3 meals a day (meals are adapted according to the diet of each volunteer). The volunteer remains independent and is free to go out and participate in activities of his/her choice. Living with a host family allows a total immersion in Togolese life to discover all its facets.

Lage und Freizeit

In addition to the main activities of the project, other activities are organised such as: discovery walks, hikes, festive outings and cultural meetings. These activities allow the volunteers to come into contact with the local population and to discover the Togolese culture.
During the weekends, collective excursions are organised by the volunteers to discover the tourist sites of the region where the workcamp is taking place. It should be noted that the expenses related to the excursions and the volunteers' outings are not included in the participation fees. However, the association can facilitate or negotiate transport for the volunteers during outings or excursions
