Togo: the First batch of IFAD aquaculture academy graduates

(Togo First) - The first batch of the Institut de formation en alternance pour le développement (IFAD-Aquaculture), the first aquaculture school of Togo, just graduated. 

The graduation ceremony took place last Friday (Feb 10) and was presided over by President Gnassingbé.  A total of 113 people graduated, including 27 females.

The program included three years of formal training followed by the creation of aquaculture farms. The graduates founded 19 cooperative businesses and 21 individual businesses on 26 different sites across the country.

During the ceremony, President Gnassingbé congratulated the trainers for their work and encouraged them to cultivate excellence. This, the leader added, will help build wealth and create jobs.

An initiative of the Presidency, the IFAD-Aquaculture is the first of 10 planned. It is located in Elevagnon, in the prefecture of East Mono. The academy currently has 120 learners.

Out of the 10 planned IFADs, three are already operational. They respectively offer aquaculture (Elavagnon), livestock (in Barkoissi), and construction (Lomé).
