About this Campaign

We are raising funds to improve water management on the project’s land. 5,000 euros are needed to manage the rainwater on the sloping site, which causes excessive run-off and soil erosion. This damages the crops we are cultivating there. The success of the wider project for sustainable development now depends on rainwater management. Our funds and local people’s resources are limited, so we invite you to support the project, and to help the youth of Togo to grow sustainably.

Ecovillage Centre des Hommes

ECDH is a new community concept, where people can learn by practically to address problems of sustainable development. Consequently, It is an ongoing participatory community project to build a training, learning and living center for human development and for cultural immersion to:

 increase sustainable education
decrease poverty
work for food sovereignty
promote culture
help the local population to be resilient and live sustainably.

So, we have already achieved the project design, land acquisition and its apportionment along permaculture principles.  That is to say, currently we are launching crowdfunding for the water management aspect of the project.  The next step will be the Ecolodge construction, and the training element will follow.  The Ecovillage Centre des Hommes will offer various sections for training, volunteering, food growing, transformation, creativity and sustainable development demonstration. The project ECDH fields of work are ecology (environment, permaculture, agriculture, soil, climate change, renewable energy etc.), culture (Togo-African Arts, handicraft, dance, cuisine etc.) and social enterprise (youth income, the local market and economy etc.).

Ecovillage Centre des Hommes is an ongoing project and will be a training and demonstration centre for human development and education.  The project’s aim is to create an inspiring space for the local community and volunteers, with a focus on improving the development of the population by learning and achieving the sustainable development.

Specific goals: produce and process agricultural goods and handicraft designs, promote social entrepreneurship, volunteering, and sustainable development education through raising awareness and training.
