Togo adheres to UN’s Safe Schools Declaration

(Togo First) - Togo has adhered to the UN’s Safe Schools Declaration, SSD. This was disclosed by NorwayUN, the permanent mission of Norway in the UN. 

Adhering to this declaration will allow Togo to have more projects aimed at protecting and maintaining education (and education actors) amid potential armed conflicts.

In line with the declaration’s implementation, Togo and 110 other countries will attend the annual conference scheduled to take place on October 24 and 25, in Abuja, Nigeria. 

Access to education for all children is a priority for the Togolese government. Many programs were launched by Lomé in this regard. These include making primary school free since 2008, taking care of examination fees, a school canteen program, and more recently the cancellation of school fees in public middle and high school in the next academic year.
