Street children rehabilitation project.

Our vulnerable children rehabilitation program aims to engage and educate troubled urban youth through sporting and extra curricular activities.

You could play an important role in the personal development of street children in Togo. Coaching sports and teaching in schools and local village communities. There are a lot of life-skills to be learnt by children as well as volunteers, such as teamwork, punctuality, keeping to your word, communication and discipline.

As a volunteer on the street children rehabilitation project you can expect to work with kids of various ages ranging from 9 years to 16 years, mentoring and teaching them various subjects and engaging them with extra curricular activities. You will work with children from some of the poorest communities in Togo, during structured weekly sessions.
