Our History

The history about Centre Des Hommes had started by the strategic visionary man who have the ability to gather people together for good cause. In the years 2000, in his hometown Kpalimé where young people wanted some change about their life condition, where young people want to see things differently by the fact that life condition is always difficult for them, the visionary decided to change himself by going abroad to learn new skill, professional training, new learning, new apprenticeship in order to become hope of happiness for the youth of his community. He was then brought to strengthen the knowledge and gain new skills outside from Togo in different country to return back, to share what he have learned to his own community how the youngest people can grow sustainably. After the skills gain he did not stay where ever he travel to for learning because the change of his local community is important for him so that the youth of his community know also how they can live sustainable life. The Centre Des Hommes was created or founded then by him the leader and have started since 2007 to put lot of action in the ground for the favour of the population affected by a need. Since then Centre Des Hommes devoted to work for the population development. Currently a training center is about to be built to showcase all the sustainable life process and demonstration.
