Projects in Togo
Project 1 - Children of Alouenou Village, Togo
Children of Alouenou Village, Togo is also known as "C.A.V."
It is a group of around a hundred children, ages 4 and up, who live with families in one village. Some are orphaned or have only one living parent. Families commonly subsist on the equivalent of $1-2 USD a day earned from farming. The children need nutritional support. Roughly half of the children are primary school aged, and half are secondary school aged. Many of the older children will need social support to find and follow a constructive future path in life.
We assist by making charitable contributions to selected nonprofits who offer nutritional support, literacy support, education in basic health care, Christian spiritual teaching, and social assistance/counseling.
As we help children become stronger and healthier physically, emotionally and academically, we also aim to encourage them to become strong and resilient spiritually. In these ways, we prepare them for a better future. We want them to have healthy relationships with God and others. Finishing high school or an apprenticeship in a trade paves the way to a successful transition to independent living after secondary school. Our desire is to see these children formed into maturing Christians who walk with God, honor Him in their lives, and serve others with love.
"God blesses those people who refuse evil advice and won't follow sinners or join in sneering at God. Instead, the law of the Lord makes them happy, and they think about it day and night. They are like trees growing beside a stream, trees that produce fruit in season and always have leaves. Those people succeed in everything they do."
~ Psalm 1:1-3 CEV
Children of Totokope Village, Togo
Totokope is a small village next door to Alouenou. Some of the children come to Alouenou for meals. These families live in the same conditions as Alouenou and we have discovered several serious medical needs among the families in Totokope.
We hope to help families in Totokope, as well as other surrounding villages, develop as we spread concepts of health, nutrition, physical, emotional, relational & spiritual well being everywhere we reach.
