Why make a site in Togo or Africa?
It is becoming easier and especially fashionable to go to Africa as a tourist. Vacation, it can be nice, but you do not actually discover Africa and Togo. By making a project of two (2) to three (03) weeks will return against you directly in contact with the local population. By working with it, you will have a good overview of their daily life, you will go to places where you will never set foot as a tourist. In addition you will end up making friends with the local community: The exchange is not only human but also cultural. Tourism is usually a bad impact on the local community. Of course, it is a source of income, but income is not often redistributed to residents. This sometimes creates tourism exploitation of people and often the loss of traditions and cultures as well as the deterioration of the landscape.
By doing a project, so living and working together with the rural community, it is hoped that people from around the world will learn to understand and respect other cultures rather than exploit.
