General context and The works volunteers have to do.

About Malaria

Most of the neighbouring villages of Kpalimé are getting an increasing rate of infant mortality caused by the disease which is malaria. More than 2.5% of children die each year from malaria in each village.

These villages which are endowed with important assets see the lives of these children lost who in Revenge should be someone for the best of their community tomorrow but who in fact  have died simply because of malaria. This is due in fact about poor hygiene with several dumps that are not far from houses where the vectors of malaria mosquitoes proliferate by creating the pathological situation of the disease causing in fact these high infant death rates in these regions. Our investigation tells us that there is a great lack of information and training for these populations to prevent the spread of this deadly disease. It is then up to us, being the Volunteer, to intervene and act to reduce this infant mortality rate in these rural areas for the better development of these communities. This is why this project is launched for all those who would like to help and participate massively in the fight against malaria by raising awareness in a village near Kpalimé-Togo.
The work to be done will therefore be to mobilise and sensitise these populations on the danger they run with these poorly distributed hygiene and to carry out activities to fight against malaria through scenes;  for example by a theatre sketch and a setting on stage for the village public place.

About VIH/SIDA AND STI/STD

Kpalimé is an important city in Togo in relation to its geographical and tourist landscape situation. This means that this city and its surrounding villages are open to the large influx of young people with acts of depravity in and out of school.

In this direction, youth delinquency is getting bigger and it is ongoing with sexual depravity. Especially in rural villages, multiple sexual partnerships causing a lot of risk of contamination are frequent, early pregnancies ensue and multiply among young girls and this impeding their schooling. Unprotected sex despite all the efforts of health centres.
However, being a Volunteer, it is up to us to act for the destroying of the damage which kills the human species THROUGH SPONTANEOUS INFORMATION ON THE GROUND. Hence the need for Awareness of Evil by CENTRE DES HOMMES for Better Development.
The work that needs to be done is to mobilise and sensitise the populations on the fight against HIV / AIDS.
This project comes at the right time to mobilise and sensitise the population over the STIs / STDs / HIV AIDS and is regularly scheduled every season of the year in order to reach several targets vulnerable householders  and reduce the risk of contamination or why not arrested the risks.

Raise awareness on the recurrent disease cancer is to help the population concerned to be aware and to avoid the risk of catching the cancer.

About Covid-19
