In Togo, the government will provide 1.2 million face masks to schools as they reopen

(Togo First) - The ministry of grassroots development and craftsmanship has launched a project aimed at producing in the next two weeks, 1.2 million face masks. The latter will be distributed, at zero cost, to schools across the country since they are about to reopen. 

The initiative is in effect steered by the national agency for support to grassroots development (ANADED) which is part of the ministry, and the national health insurance institute (INAM). 

To achieve this endeavour, the two partners will count on 1,500 tailors and seamstresses all over the country. Masks produced will be reusable and washable.  

In addition to enhancing safety in schools, the project also “helps create employment for artisans who lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, said Fleur Essoh, regional coordinator ANADEB.
