In the village of Ati Apedokoe, 90 km from the capital Lomé, the approximately 2,000 inhabitants live mainly from agriculture, livestock and small businesses. Since many women have not had the opportunity to attend school, the project aims to help 50 women to feed their families. Materials, seeds and equipment to enable the cultivation of pineapple and teak are to be provided. Giving the women their own income will have a direct impact on their living and working conditions, and the children will benefit from better nutrition.
