Togo: Construction of Datcha University set to begin in 2024

(Togo First) - Togo will kickstart the first phase of its regional university construction program next year. In this phase, the country will start building a university in Datcha, Plateaux region, and continue delocalizing the University of Kara. The news was announced last week, December 22, by Sani Yaya, Minister of Economy and Finances.

“The first phase of the project to build new universities in each region begins in 2024 and concerns the University of Kara and the University of Datcha,” said Yaya, emphasizing that the project is a priority for the government. The project will be covered by the 2024 budget which stands at CFA2,179 billion.

Three months ago, the project for building the Datcha University was assessed and adopted by decree. 

In Kara, the first stone for the project was laid in April by President Faure Gnassingbe.

According to the government, the project should also focus on diversifying training offerings, with emphasis on vocational, technological, and scientific courses.

" It will improve the quality of higher education and offer training pathways with a predominantly vocational, technological, and scientific focus," Lomé noted.
