Info about the Camp UNITE 2009


Camp UNITE (Unification de la Nation: Initiative, Travail, et Education) is a series of weeklong summer camps for motivated Togolese students and apprentices from villages and cities throughout the country. Camp UNITE participants take part in discussions and challenges focused on themes such as self-confidence, HIV/AIDS awareness, teamwork, sex/health education, goal-setting, life skills, leadership, empowerment and behavioral change.

In addition to promoting self-empowerment, Camp UNITE reinforces the solidarity of Togolese youth and seeks to heal the complex ethnic divisions that exist throughout the country. Since all regions of Togo are represented, participants come to the realization that they are all responsible for the progress and development of their country. Camp UNITE also allows participants to make friends and contacts throughout Togo for future collaboration.

Camp UNITE 2009 will mark the 8th year of camp for female students, 7th year for male students, 6th year for female apprentices (learning trades such as hairdressing and tailoring), and the 3rd year of camp for male apprentices (learning trades such as masonry and mechanics). Past participants have not only shown remarkable personal accomplishments (such as continuing their education through college and opening their own businesses), but have led their communities in development through trainings, peer educator groups, and educational sessions. The camp is staffed by Peace Corps volunteers who serve as cabin counselors as well as by Togolese educators and professionals who help lead group sessions and discussions.
