US embassy’s Self-Help Program grants XOF11mln to support small community projects

(Togo First) - The Self-Help Program of the US embassy in Togo is making new beneficiaries at the beginning of February. The scheme is granting a total of XOF11 million to support about 10 small community projects in the country.

Self-Help is a community assistance program, launched in 1964, which aims to finance micro-development projects of local communities. The main selection criterion is self-handling. Indeed, once a project carrier benefits from the program, they become self-sufficient.

Particular focus is on projects with the potential to generate income, create employment and produce marketable skills (sewing, livestock breeding, etc.). The maximum amount awarded for each project is $5,000.
