November 12, 2019 - November 12, 2020 ...
A year ago to the day, we began our stay in Togo with our faithful friend Corneille, who has been hosting us for a dozen years "Chez Bouba".
Confined to Brittany, we cannot join our friends from Sokodé and Sagbadaï this year: Taïrou, Tchedré, Vincent, the Bouba team and the others. Even if the virus seems much less active in sunny Africa, it would not have been reasonable to travel in these conditions ...
Never mind, we are by heart and mind with them and we will make you live virtually for 3 weeks the progress of our projects in Togo.
Friends and loyal supporters of SPESS, stay tuned, we still need you, there is no shortage of projects !!
Unfortunately our trip to Togo this year was canceled for reasons we know. We will reassess the situation in 4 or 5 months to see if leaving is possible.

Despite this disappointment, we continue to work on the projects thanks to Whatsapp and the projects are progressing well. The following is a recap of our actions this year and our plans for next year.

1. Primary of Nawaro. The foundations are done and they are putting up the walls. The goal is to open the building for the school entrance September 2021

Nos objectifs SPESS


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.
