Empowering Children

Who We Are

The Organization for Women and Development International (OFED International) empowers women and their children to obtain economic freedom, by providing all the tools and education they need to be successful.

Who We Serve

We give women a voice. We believe that work we do will build a better environment. Through our various programs we enrich the lives of women and their children in rural communities.

Currently our focus is on the rural communities of the Republic of Togo. So far we have helped…

Women from 6 agricultural cooperatives
Women obtain their identification cards
Women learn to read and write
Have clean water

We used to drink dirty water from the river and wash our agricultural products “Cassava” with it. We experienced numerous health problems.

OFED built a manual water well and now we have drinking water. OFED also provided us with processing equipment and a storage unit. We now can process the whole cassava root quickly and produce in large quantities and safely store it. With the increased revenues, we are financially autonomous and can take care of our children.

Thank you OFED for your concerns for our cooperative and the well-being of our people.

Bakari Akouvi,

Secretary, Cooperative of Djogbodji (Republic of Togo)
