Education - nursery extension

During our visit to Klologo in January 2020, we discovered the poor condition of the kindergarten there. With the help of a generous donation, we can now renovate the kindergarten and build a covered playground (protection from the sun!). Purchase playground equipment.

New Kekeli Project: Training as an opportunity Training young people, giving them a perspective - that is Kekeli Togo's new project. In this way, we help to reduce poverty by giving young, motivated people the realistic opportunity to earn a living and thus also contribute to the regional economy. 100 000 F CFA, about 150 EUR, is the cost of the three-year handicraft training in Klologo. Village leaders and the village development committee have selected three needy young people whose parents cannot afford the training. Two young women, aged 17 and 21, are now being trained as hairdressers thanks to our donations, and one young man (22) as a welder. A fourth training is already paid for by donations; a young person who wants to learn a trade used in the village and is eligible for the donation is currently being sought - for reasons of parity, we always want to support the same number of women as men. The welding apprenticeship can begin! Michel, the president of our association, recently received this message with a photo: Théo, the future welder for whom we pay the training, needs a bicycle to get to the training, 30 kilometres a day easily! The bicycle, also acquired from Kekeli funds, was now presented to him personally by the honourable village council. On the right, the young man's aunt. 29.09.2020 At the Kekeli project craft training: now a carpenter Kodjovi Gati, 21, will soon start his three-year carpentry apprenticeship, which will end with a skilled worker's certificate. A member of the Kekeli Togo e.V. association has donated the costs for the training and a bicycle for him to ride from Klologo to the training site. To motivate him and, above all, to teach him how to use the tools, the donor has also given him the toolbox shown here; it is partly equipped with new tools, all of which are, of course, operated manually. 02.11.2020 12 November - a Kekeli festival day in Klologo "We asked for a swing, maybe a slide - and we got this beautiful playground!" said the head of the kindergarten in Klologo at the inauguration ceremony of the kindergarten annex building, which we built with the help of a member's donation. The building, painted blue, offers a dormitory with cots for the little ones, as well as a playground covered to protect them from the sun, with swings, two slides, a sandbox with toys, and a blackboard for painting. It was indeed a ceremonial inauguration: the honourable village chairman and the dignitaries came in their ceremonial robes, the representative of the Minister of Culture at district level gave a speech in which he highly praised the efforts of our association for children and youth: children need opportunities to play in order to develop, it is one of the basic rights of children, and Kekeli makes this possible. The chairperson of the Hanns- Seidel-Foundation in Togo also praised, recognised and thanked our commitment. The inauguration of the kindergarten, originally planned for the beginning of the school year in early September, had to be postponed due to Corona; the holidays were extended until November. So 12 November was a very special day for the people of Klologo. Not only was the kindergarten inaugurated, but the 40 portable hand-washing stations donated by us and generously subsidised by "Pharmacists Help" were also handed over and will be installed at the secondary school. The six apprentices were also presented to the public, for whom we at Kekeli pay the entire training costs. One of the girls received a sewing machine, as you can see in the photos; two of the boys ride bicycles donated by us to the training centre. Here, as elsewhere, we again followed our principle of spending money locally and strengthening the local economy. It was a Kekeli celebration day in Klologo, the village where our efforts are directed - and it was nice to hear from several sides how much our work is appreciated there. This motivates us to continue! Click here for the pictures and video On December 2, 2020, her training began: Rosaline Afi Amedome, an 18-year-old from Klologo, is going to a top-class state institute to train as a medical assistant. Kekeli Togo e.V. is covering the costs of the three-year diploma course. "We see this as an investment in our girls' project," says Michel Frenzel-Assih, chairman of the association. With the planned girls' project - scheduled to start this spring - Kekeli Togo wants to counteract the high number of early pregnancies in the global South; many teenage girls leave school prematurely because they are pregnant. The path to a professional life - and thus out of the poverty trap - is thus blocked for them. Kekeli Togo wants to provide a girls' meeting place for the approximately 250 middle and high school girls per school year, where they can receive counseling, training and information. The village nurse and midwife will look after the girls; Rosaline Afi will also be a contact person during her studies, but especially afterwards."We bank on information and education, but also on strengthening the girls' self-confidence, and ultimately also on contraception," says Frenzel-Assih. Kekeli Togo is currently looking for donors for the "Girls Project"; the total cost for five years is EUR 15,000. (We have already introduced the local committee for the Girls Project, which runs the girls' meeting place). Rosaline has seven sisters and one brother; she lives in Klologo. The institute she now attends offers diploma and master's courses in business administration and management. It is one of the best public universities in Togo.
The three trainees Afi Julienne Blewoussi, Koffi Theo Agbekponou and Améyo Jeanna Gati.
