Togo, officially the Togolese Republic (French: République Togolaise), is a sovereign state in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. It extends south to the Gulf of Guinea, where its capital Lomé is located. Togo covers 57,000 square kilometres (22,008 square miles), making it one of the smallest countries in Africa, with a population of approximately 7.6 million.
Volunteer Togo with Go Volunteer Africa on a wide range of volunteer Africa projects, including Childcare, Teaching, Medical, Construction and Women and Youth Empowerment.
Togo is probably one of the nicest places in Western Africa. Roads are pretty good, distances small, beaches sandy and white, people friendly, hills and mountains waiting to be explored. The capital city, Lomé is an excellent place to start your trip. Lots of daytrips are arranged by Go Volunteer Africa.
Volunteer Togo projects are located in Kpalimé in the north and its beautiful hilly surroundings deserve a visit; trekking and hiking in the area is wonderful.
