Togolese army gets massive financial support from Global Peace Operations Initiative

(Togo First) - This year, Togo will receive about XOF3 billion from the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI). The latter is a US security scheme that aims to reinforce peace worldwide (through the United Nations). 

The funds will benefit the army’s training centre for peace operations in Lomé. In detail, about $1.6 million will improve the centre’s facilities, $3.3 million will be spent on equipment and the remaining $580,000 will be invested in the training. 

The works regarding the facilities have already been started and were recently checked on by the US ambassador to Togo, Eric Stromayer.

The financing should also help military personnel dispatched across the globe for peace operations to better prepare. At the moment, around 1,500 Togolese soldiers are deployed worldwide by the UN.
