Madjatom is located in an area surrounded by five smaller villages in northeastern Togo, with a population of 4000. It is the site of a weekly market which draws from over 50 kilometers outside the town. However, the nearest Health Care facility is over 5 kilometers away and is not equipped to provide care to the combined population of both villages. The absence of a clinic creates a lack of access to health care. The people in Madjatom are determined to open a local health care facility. They have been able to construct the building, purchased necessary furniture and have even collected money to purchase medicines. However, before they will be able to open the clinic, the community must purchase basic medical supplies. Partnership funding assistance has been requested to purchase beds, scales, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, minor surgical utensils and other necessary supplies and medicines. A community based organization, COGES will be responsible for the budget, monitoring cost and utilization and will perform monthly analysis and reporting. Presence of the clinic will provide, for the first time in this community, access for children to immunizations and preventive health care. Women, approximately 100 per year, will be able to receive pre-natal services and give birth in sanitary conditions. And, the entire population will have access to health care of illness and injury, and necessary health care services.

The Fundamental 1st Cycle School wishes to improve the health of its students. An 8-student representative bureau, under the guidance of the school director and the 6th grade teacher, has decided they would like to plant mangos in a school garden. They hope to learn about tree care, and later harvest the fruit for the students as a supplemental vitamin source. Extra fruit will be sold in market to raise money for the school’s medical supplies.

 +
In addition to the ultimate use of the trees, the people of the community have heard about the waterless planting method and they asked to learn it. We are taking the opportunity of a tree planting to invite an expert to teach interested community members and 4-5th graders. When the trees are established, the nursery owner who is providing them will return and teach grafting as part of his sale cost, so students will be exposed to two tree-improvement methods.

 +
To help the school, children’s parents have agreed to build the fence protecting the trees. They will also collect the compost and other supplies necessary for planting. The 4th and 5th grade classes will share watering duties. The school asks for assistance in purchasing fence materials and trees, as well as the teaching fees for the PLASA expert.

The Fundamental 1st Cycle School wishes to improve the health of its students. An 8-student representative bureau, under the guidance of the school director and the 6th grade teacher, has decided they would like to plant mangos in a school garden. They hope to learn about tree care, and later harvest the fruit for the students as a supplemental vitamin source. Extra fruit will be sold in market to raise money for the school’s medical supplies.

In addition to the ultimate use of the trees, the people of the community have heard about the waterless planting method and they asked to learn it. We are taking the opportunity of a tree planting to invite an expert to teach interested community members and 4-5th graders. When the trees are established, the nursery owner who is providing them will return and teach grafting as part of his sale cost, so students will be exposed to two tree-improvement methods.

To help the school, children’s parents have agreed to build the fence protecting the trees. They will also collect the compost and other supplies necessary for planting. The 4th and 5th grade classes will share watering duties. The school asks for assistance in purchasing fence materials and trees, as well as the teaching fees for the PLASA expert.
