High School Lybama of Sokodé ...
Here is an important high school for SPESS, it is this establishment that most often some of the young people of Sagbadaï go after their years of college. We come every year to visit this school, and are always welcomed by Principal Jean-Marie, Honorary Censor, 17 teachers and 572 high school students.
Note that 5 of the 8 classes are still housed in sheds made of sheet metal and wood, and despite this and overcrowding in some classes (up to 105 in the famous second A4, see the picture on the lower left), all work in calm. We shared our experience with several classes, not forgetting to greet the former students of Sagbadaï ...
Courage to all, one day you will have a better working environment!

Our educational ambitions

Education is obviously fundamental to the development and future of a country.
Enrollment of students is very uneven and many rural children are not in school due to lack of resources or because of the travelling distance.
Improving infrastructure is a priority that the Association has implemented at Sagbadaï constructing a solid building housing three primary classes. This was finally finished in 2014 and can hold 150 children.
The next step was the reconstruction of the college which was non-existant and one of the reasons why only 50 children out of 350 went on to further education after 11 years old. This has now been acheived, with the help of an American organisation named Peace Corp. The building was inaugurated in May 2014 and can hold 160 children.

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.
