Important Trip Info

Learn more about the Togo trip experience:

Convoy of Hope started working with a strong church-based network of schools in 2019 to feed children across the West African country of Togo. School leaders reported almost immediate improvement in the test scores, focus, and general health of the children. Now, Field Teams may serve alongside local leaders in these schools to provide a safer, healthier, and more sustainable environment for the children to learn.

Many schools have no latrines or extremely insufficient latrine facilities. Also, the schools often lack kitchens, clean water, or other important resources.

Field Teams can serve in Togo, helping to build latrines, kitchens, dining facilities, or with wells and clean water. During the time on the field, teams will also engage with children with opportunities to play with them, share in their classrooms or through assemblies, help serve meals, and more.

The Togolese people are incredibly kind, hospitable, and looking forward to time with team members. Expect to share with them, learn from them, and walk together with them during your time in the country.

A note about project costs: We ask that each team raise the minimum amount of noted funds, which will allow for either new latrines, a kitchen, or simple dining facilities. Teams may choose to raise more funds to cover or go towards the cost of other needed helps in the specific place of service, including water wells.

Teams will connect with a local church and the Togolese people, with opportunities to share with children. They’ll also serve in a school, helping to build a facility to help provide a cleaner, safer, healthier and more sustainable place for the children to learn.

The estimated trip costs are exactly that: estimates. The specific and final costs will be communicated during the application approval process.

Every participant must meet the following criteria:

  • 16-years-old or older for international trips and 13-years-old or older for U.S.-based trips. Certain trips, noted in the description, are only open to those 18+.
  • In good health.
  • Consent to and pass a background check.

Currently, we are not able to accommodate individuals who are not connected with a team.

Field Teams exist to connect partners with opportunities to serve  people through Convoy of Hope. Field Teams consist of people from churches, universities, and other groups or organizations.

Field Teams are open to those who are 16-years-old and older for international travel (certain trips require 18+) and 13-years-old and older for U.S.-based trips. It should be noted that many of our group opportunities include construction-oriented work. Please look closely to see the type of work required of each opportunity, and keep this in mind when deciding on the team members from your group.

Field Teams help Convoy of Hope accomplish our goals around the world. Because of this, different teams may serve through different projects and opportunities. Currently, most of our teams will help with construction projects that serve our Children’s Feeding initiative. Additionally, most teams will spend time with children and others who are served through Convoy of Hope.

We don’t list every possible date for your teams to serve as there are many changing factors, and that list would be near impossible to keep for each place of service. In every place, however, there are multiple windows of opportunity throughout the entire year, except for a break around Christmas. Please let us know via email or your application of 2 or 3 windows of time (a Saturday-Saturday works best in the Western Hemisphere), and a place(s) that interests you, and we will work to find a time that works for both you and the field.
