[edit] General Clothing

There are many very good tailors in Togo, and most Volunteers have clothing made in country. The tailors can copy what you already have or follow a picture or sketch. Material, cloth and tailoring are relatively inexpensive. Remember that anything you bring with you will get worn, dirty, and will not come back the same. If you have a favorite style of shirt, pants, skirt or dress, bring it along as it can be easily copied. There are also used clothing markets (like our thrift stores) where you can find almost anything.

Bring cotton as opposed to synthetics as the latter do not “breathe” in hot weather.

Words of wisdom from current Volunteers and staff:

All of the items on the packing list are recommended but not required. Almost anything you would truly need is available here in Togo. Everyday items are nearly the same price, or cheaper than the U.S. Electronics or computer related equipment will be 50 percent to 100 percent more expensive here compared to the U.S. You may want to consider bringing some extra cash and lightening your luggage in the process.
