I- UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF TRAVEL WITH A MISSION (TWAM):

With the creation of the TWAM concept were born three essential words which are the nouns "twamer" and " twamhost" and the verb "to twam".
what is a twamer? A twamer is a traveller or somebody travelling with the desire to share knowledge, skills, or experience with others.
  
what is a twamhost? A twamhost is any institution like schools, hospitals. grassroot organization, etc. wishing to receive travellers and provide them an audience.

So "to twam" is about the meeting experience between a twamer and a twamhost in order to share knowledge, skills, or experience together. This meeting could be of several types as lecture, conference, teaching, training, game party, etc.

So now you know what you should do the next you travel : you should try to twam somewhere.


II- ABOUT THIS PROGRAM ACTIVITIES :

This program is intended to encourage the development of Travel With A Mission activities in Togo. Among Travel With A Mission activities are : seeking for Twamers and Twamhosts, organizing meetings and events. So are the activities of the present program. :

The volunteer will be involved in the following activities. It is a real challenge on the field and at office. Simply join us Today !

Level 1 - Finding new twamhosts : with other volunteers and our team you will go from local institutions and grassroots to local institutions and grassroots like local schools, foreigners schools, grassroot associations, etc. to present to their teachers or their heads the benefits  they could obtain by joining our platform.

Level 2 - Finding new twamers : with other volunteers and our team you will go from tourist places to tourist places like hotels, restaurants,   beaches, museums, cultural centers, etc to meet travellers and advocate for the Twaming cause.

Level 3 - Help the twamers and twamhosts who join us to have a meeting experience.

Level 4 - Organizing an event : with other volunteers and our team, plan and organize an event involving the twamers and twamhosts we found in order to make the twamers-twamhosts meeting experiences possible after this volunteer program.
