The Kekeli Togo Girls Project

Our "Girls' Project", a project for the protection and promotion of girls in Klologo, aims to create an environment in which adolescent girls in the village are protected from early pregnancy and early marriage, where their rights are respected and their full development is guaranteed. This enables them to complete their schooling and learn a trade suited to their abilities, which opens the way out of poverty. A local committee takes over the support of the girls on a voluntary basis; a suitable meeting place, the girls' house, was renovated with the help of an earmarked individual donation, a medically trained contact person for the girls is currently being trained at the association's expense; here as well as there, donations in kind of contraceptives, condoms, washable sanitary napkins are sought.

The Kekeli Girls' House

The perfect complement to this holistic girls' project is a sanitary building just for girls (and women). In sub-Saharan Africa, there is a lack of toilets for all, but especially toilets for women. Women and girls are disadvantaged because of their menstruation. Menstruation is associated with shame and taboo; menstrual blood is considered unclean; if a woman leaves menstrual blood in the open, in a field for example, the field is considered "polluted" and there is a fear of a bad harvest! This is about human dignity, the dignity of girls and women! This discrimination of women, this compulsion to shame imposed by the environment is countered by a sanitary building especially for girls / women; it offers the girls and women security, protection of privacy and discretion. (There are a few very old latrines in Klologo, without hand basins, as well as one we built without funding, lit, with basins and 12 cubicles. Here we have women's toilets and men's toilets next to each other, in one room; the concrete seat in men's toilets is wider in diameter, usually also a bit higher. However, there is no facility reserved for women and girls so far - that would be a novelty with an exemplary character). The facility is maintained and managed by the local committee, i.e. checked for functionality and damage if necessary, supplied with soap, cleaned. The high level of commitment of Chef du Village and CVD to the previous Kekeli projects (well, latrine, kindergarten extension building) leads to the assumption that the sanitary building will remain in good condition for a very long time.

The Kekeli Togo Girls Project is based on five pillars:

I ) A local committee for the protection and promotion of girls in Klologo The local committee (Comitée pour la Protection et Promotion des Jeunes Filles, CPPJF), founded in November 2020 immediately after initial preliminary discussions between the association and decision-makers in Klologo, takes over the training and education and accompanies the girls as mentors until they finish school. The girls are also trained in self-confidence and personality development. A leisure programme (gymnastics, choir, creative design) rounds off the programme. II) A medically trained contact person for the girls The costs of the three-year diploma training of a medical representative (Déléguée Médicale) were covered by the association, costs: EUR 3,000; the amount was an individual donation by a member. Start of training: December 2020. The young woman will be available to the girls and support the local nurse / midwife. III) A girls' house as a training centre and meeting place. The girls should have a girls' centre where they can be among themselves, develop community and strengthen each other. Here they are trained, educated and supported. With the help of an individual donation, the Kekeli Togo Association will cover the renovation costs (new roof truss, new roof etc.) of a vacant 110 sqm building provided by the Chef du Village. Costs: EUR 5,700. Construction will start at the beginning of February 2021; completion at the end of March 2021. The association will also cover the costs for furnishing with plastic chairs and tables, as well as for the necessary IT equipment (two laptops, projector, DVD player, loudspeakers, etc.) - a total of EUR 2,000 has been budgeted for this. However, we are currently trying to get the equipment from relevant companies as donations in kind. IV) Contraceptives, condoms, sanitary napkins Within the framework of education about personal hygiene, contraceptives and condoms, we want to give the girls concrete help. Both the Kekeli Togo Association and the local committee are currently trying to obtain donations in kind from NGOs and from the "Apotheker Helfen" association: Contraceptive syringes (Sayana Press), condoms, washable sanitary towels (keyword: period poverty!). Washable sanitary towels are also sewn by trainee seamstresses in the village, whose training we pay for. The company Frank Walder in Münchberg has agreed to sew washable sanitary towels for Klologo; the non-woven fabric has been donated by the company Mündel in Hof. The association is still looking for donations for material - after all, sanitary napkins are to be available for years to come! N.B.: Contraceptives are not administered by the committee, but by the nurse / midwife of the local health centre (for minors in consultation with the parents). She is also a member of the CPPJF. V) A sanitary building for girls and women only. Construction of a sanitary building with six toilet cubicles (WC), two shower cubicles with two showers each, a sanitary room and four washbasins for girls (and women) only in the school yard between middle and high school. Girls can perform their menstrual hygiene there during their period without the usual shame and also otherwise be undisturbed and without male glances among their peers. The sanitary building especially for women and girls - the first in the area - complements and crowns Kekeli Togo's project for the promotion and protection of young women. Mädchen. Baukosten hierfür: EUR 12.000. Ein Teil der Kosten wurde uns schon von zwei Stiftungen zugesagt. Wir suchen auch hierfür noch Spenden.

"Sex education and contraception"

The state family planning centre handed over the contraceptives that were bought for the girls' project. The association Apotheker helfen (Pharmacists Help) provided us with the financial means. The hormonal The hormonal contraceptives and condoms were handed over to the director and the midwife of the health centre in Klologo, and some representatives of ATBEF are coming to Klologo to hold seminars; the midwife of the polyclinic in Vogan will support the midwife in Klologo with information about the effects and use of hormonal contraceptives. Olivier Kpakpa, the head of ATBEF at district level, is accompanying the project.

PC courses for adults and young people

Nine young girls and one boy in Klologo received basic computer skills. In a two-week course for beginners, paid for by the Kekeli Togo association, the teenagers were introduced to the use of computers and the internet. The nine girls were chosen from the girls of the Kekeli Togo Girls Project, the one boy is the brave young man who got himself elected to the board of the committee for the promotion of girls in Klologo. As the photos show, the young people are attentive to the cause! A similar course, at a higher level, was then given by the teacher to adults: The students then became the head of the girls' committee, the Chef du Village, the head of the high school, the head of the partner association as well as the shop steward of the apprentices whose training Kekeli Togo pays for. All of them acted as multipliers.
