About the volunteering opportunity

At Autarcique e.V. you are sustainably engaged for people in Togo (Africa). We fight poverty, promote health and climate protection. To be able to carry out this work we need donations. Unfortunately, at the moment we receive almost exclusively few private donations. However, this should change soon.

Following will promote concrete your contribution:

  • Help to self-help through a sound practical training in the field of Bio-Landwirtschat and entrepreneurship
  • Bio-food and other products
  • Contribution to food security of the country
  • Education : about dangers of chemical pesticides and conventional agriculture
  • Support for conversion to organic agriculture and entrepreneurship
  • Place for dialogue and exchange on agriculture
  • Find solution to some essential needs of people in the area. E.g. access to drinking water
  • Creation of direct and indirect jobs

Current situation in Togo:

  • High unemployment of youth, often even if they are classically well educated. Since there is little industry and thus little employment opportunity for university graduates
  • Organic agriculture has become an exception. Few offers of organic products, at the same time the demand for them is also increasing in Togo.
  • There is too much chemical pesticide use. The prescribed dosages are far exceeded and in the applications, the farmers usually do not wear protective equipment. Diseases are pre-programmed
  • While there is no good health care in the country

Your Tasks

In the future we would like to try to get funded by foundations and companies as well. Ideas and strategies for other fundraising measures are welcome.  If you feel like taking the initiative and actively helping to shape this process, please get in touch with us today.
