Volunteering in Togo

Join an exciting volunteer project in this magical West African country

Togo is an exciting, yet unusual place to spend some time on a volunteer project or work experience placement. Our voluntary projects in Togo are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a gap year, career break or as summer work experience while studying.

Togo is a narrow slice of land sandwiched between Ghana and Benin in West Africa. At its widest point Togo is just 110 kilometres from east to west. It is a Franco-African melting pot which has beaches, jungles and, by spanning six distinct climatic zones from north to south, a great deal in between.

Although Togo became independent of France in 1960, French influence still exists everywhere with French remaining the first language, although you will hear a host of other tribal dialects spoken across the country. It's not just the language that was influenced - there are boulangeries across the country selling delicious croissants and baguettes!

Where we are based in Togo


Projects Abroad is based in Lomé, the capital city of Togo.

Volunteers stay with local Togolese host families in Lomé, who are famous for their generous hospitality, and pride in their home country.

You can visit Lomé's clubs and restaurants, to sample African food reputed to be the best in West Africa or try some traditional dancing to frenetic drum beats.

Visiting the traditional markets or relaxing on the city’s beaches are also popular ways to spend the weekend.

Airport pickup, flights and visas togo

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Togo arrival procedures page.
