Description: Access to computer tools is still very limited in schools and universities in Togo. As a consequence, a large majority of Togolese pupils and students do not master computer tools. The NGO ASTOVOT sets up for the benefit of students in the commune of Kpalimé basic and practical courses in computer science and Internet tools for a period of three (3) weeks. The modules will focus on: discovery of computers and familiarization with a computer, connection, navigation, e-mail, downloading software and transfer of text and image files, discovery of social networks. In addition to the courses, the project offers the opportunity to make film and documentary screenings to the children in the afternoons with debates and intercultural exchanges between volunteers and the children.

Accommodation: On site of project: Accommodation conditions are generally rudimentary (especially in rural areas). The group is housed together in a house in which the volunteers have to share rooms (usually 2 to 4 rooms). We have small mattresses and plastic mats that will be used as bedding for the volunteers. Because the houses are often not equipped with beds. However, volunteers can provide small inflatable mattresses or small floor mats, sleeping bags, mosquito nets, etc.
Language: French and English are the two languages of the project. However, French is the official language spoken in Togo. It is advisable for English-speaking volunteers wishing to participate in this project to have a minimum level in French, because a large majority of local volunteers and communities have a low level in English.

Notes: If the volunteer's flight arrives during the night in Lomé; the volunteer is requested to make sure to spend the first night in a hotel in the capital. For the safety of the volunteers, our organization prohibits any night transport to the project site.
