It is with great pleasure the board of SIVA4KIDS Foundation informs that we had the opportunity to go to Togo, West-Africa, in February, and the representative, Emmanuel Olivier (MD) of SIVA4KIDS, visited a couple of schools. On top of bringing a useful educational material for all the children at the school through this trip, which gave SIVA4KIDS Foundation the chance to have a closer look at the Togolese educational system and the needs of the educational facilities at the schools. The 1st School called “Les Anges” is a private institution located in Be-Kliklame in Lome.
250 children from 2,5 year till 10 year old are following classes there. The school does not receive any subventions from the state.
The 2nd school is the public school of a village called Lowoe ( near Aveta) at 25 km north of Lome, which was built in 1998.
On 2003 this school became public. Today 200 children from 5 till 12 are going to this school. The school is missing all the primary needs. (no water, no electricity, no toilet).
The director Dogla Koudjo and the teachers are paid by the state. However the school has to pay for the books they are using ( 300 francs-CFA per year).
In both schools the reception was outstanding. Teachers and children were very enthusiastic and they are looking forward to hear from us”.
