Esther 27112019

Day 18 Friday (continued): Esther must be cured.
No inauguration today in Sagbadaï for Martine, who closely follows the care of little Esther at the clinique.
Dressings every day and results of exams today with the paediatrician Anaïs.
Rather reassuring news for the moment, but Esther must have a scanner in Lomé and a consultation in a specialised hospital in Afagnan in the south of Togo next week. Everyone around us strives to facilitate this journey, a great first for Esther and her parents.
We return to France on Sunday, but we will continue give you news of Esther.

Our travel obtectives

Since the establishment of our Association, we try to be present as often as possible on site at Sagbadaï to actively participate in the development of the infrastructures, to actively do the "hands-on" work and advise our African friends. Stays of three to four weeks, depending on the availability of each person, alone or in groups for greater efficiency.
Ten missions have been carried out, bringing their share of satisfactions and disappointments sometimes, for example when drought thwarts the ambitions of farmers!
Good mood, strength and initiative are required, but all people of goodwill are welcome. The experience is unforgettable and the reward of strong human relationships.

Nos objectifs SPESS

S.P.E.S.S.

The SPESS was founded in 2008 in Brittany as a non profit making association to support the disadvantaged and the poor in Togo.
The original idea was to develop a farm and traditional cultures in the small village of Sagbadaï, located 300 kilometers north of the capital Lome in the province of Sokode.

We then focused more on the questions of education and health. In 2012 we started the project of building a solid school building (for primary classes) in order to allow children to be educated in decent conditions. In 2014, we built the college buildings to enable a better continuity between primary and secondary education as many primary-schooled children drop out due to a lack of facilities and finance.

Health is also a main priority and it is imperative to improve the existing local infrastructure to allow access to care for the poor. One of our main projects is to renovate the old and dilapidated dispensary in Sagabadaï. They have no running water, no electricity and no real equipment.
