Your donation has really made a difference!

Every day, the majority of people living in the countryside in Togo suffer from malnutrition as a result of extreme poverty. Inadequate health care, poor educational facilities, and child labor compound the difficulties for many rural villagers. What’s more, a husband has legal powers to restrict his wife’s freedom to work and to control her earnings, reducing the development of human capital and long-term poverty reduction. Although many of these women want to contribute to the family income, they do not have the resources, support or training to join the labor market.

That’s where we come in. More than 400 women entrepreneurs in 9 rural villages in Togo have set up their own businesses through the help of Action10 and as a result of your donations. These businesses address the requests by the villagers such as: producing and selling food, drinks, and clothing as well as offering medicine, medical advice and hairdressing. The entrepreneurs have been provided with small loans, business training adapted to local conditions, and weekly on-site coaching. 99% of the loans have been paid back and reinvested into new businesses.

Entrepreneurship has been the way out of poverty for so many women in Togo. But there are so much more that need our help to make this happen. Your support and donations are making possible to continue this work and change the lives of not only the women on Togo but of all the families this program is touching.

From all of them and from the Action10 team, Thank You, from the bottom of our hearts, Thank You!
