Togo: 2021-2022 Junior and High School Fees Covered by State

(Togo First) - Public junior and high school students will pay no registration or school fees in the 2021-2022 academic year. This was just disclosed by the Togolese government.

The authorities said the move aims to “cushion the pandemic’s impact on vulnerable populations,” and aligns with “efforts to boost the resilience of Togolese populations.”

This social action adds to others taken by the government since the health crisis began; including the Novissi scheme which cost no less than CFA13 billion, and the payment of registration fees for school exams (CFA1.9 billion).

Water and power bills covered by State

The State also paid water and electricity bills for part of the population, for August 2021. 

This measure was implemented in April-August 2020. At the time, it covered thousands of people (almost 100,000 water consumers) and cost the State almost CFA10 billion. 

Water consumers who benefited from the State’s support had a consumption level ranging between 0 and 10 m3. As for electricity, it concerned consumption of 0 to 40 KWh, for both postpaid and prepaid customers on a 2-wire, 10A maximum subscription and whose use is exclusively domestic.
