A Bit About Togo...
The Togolese republic is one of the developing nations in West Africa that sits on the bank of the gulf of guinea, nestled in between Ghana (west) Benin (east) and Burkina Faso (north).
This French speaking nation gained independence on 27th April 1960. Along with French they speak Éwé, Gen, Kabiyè, and Tem in various parts of the country.
Its capital city is Lomé in which UNICEF has worked, side by side, with the Togolese Red Cross on health related water projects.
