Datcha Picked to House Togo’s 3rd Public University

(Togo First) - During its last Council of Ministers held on September 27, the Togolese government examined and adopted a decree to build a university in Datcha, Plateaux region (120km from Lomé). This is part of a bigger project to provide each of the five regions of the country with a public university. 

The project aims to “improve the quality of higher education and provide training pathways with a vocational, technological, and scientific focus".

Why Datcha? 

Datcha was picked for two key reasons, according to Christian Trimua, Minister, Secretary General. The first reason is that people living far from Lomé will no longer need to move to the capital, which means less costs for parents.

Trimua took the example of the University of Kara.  "The University of Kara has shown its attractiveness also for those from Lomé who go to Kara regularly and enable a cultural exchange with other fellow citizens."

The second reason is that “its Geographic location strategically reduces costs and allows a teacher who has a weekday class in Lomé to travel to Datcha afterward and extend to Kara without having to make major detours.” 

Once completed, the University of Datcha should be Togo’s third public university, after the University of Lomé, created in 1970, and the University of Kara, created in 2003.
