Micro financing empowers women and changes lives in Togo - Lime
Micro financing empowers women and changes lives in Togo The women in a coastal village on the Togo-Benin border are doing what they are known for – singing and dancing. But as the soothing tones and rhythms give way to the sounds of coins being dropped into a bowl, it becomes clear there is something else afoot. The circle of brightly clad women soon put their celebrations aside and get down to the business of banking. The amounts of money being borrowed and paid back here may seem small, but for these Togolese women each tiny contribution to the ‘bank' helps. Transactions are recorded under the women's watchful eyes, and the money is kept under lock and key for when they need it most. Micro-financing – the lending small amounts of money to help the poor, ...

Planning a trip of Togo is tricky affair - Lime
Planning a trip of Togo is tricky affair Togo spans six geographic zones and ranges in climate from the tropical south to semi-arid north, which make planning a trip a tricky affair. One of the best times to visit is mid-June to mid-July. This is after the heaviest early rains have passed, and the country is humid but not scorching hot. The period from March to May can be a real scorcher. The July to September and November to February periods are the driest but also coincide with the choking, dust-laden harmattan winds and with poor visibility, it is rotten time for photographers. If you're sticking close to the coastline, December to March is the area's 'tourist season,' as the harmattan only makes it through to the coast a few times. Major roads are...

Tamberma Valley It would be a crime to visit Togo and not check out this amazing valley - Lime
Tamberma Valley It would be a crime to visit Togo and not check out this amazing valley Its unique collection of fortified villages were founded in the 17th century by people who fled the slaving forays of the Benin's Dahomeyan kings. The valley was isolated until recently but is now the closest thing northern Togo has to a tourist hot spot, with the attendant overzealous guides. A typical Tamberma compound, called a tata, consists of a series of towers connected by a thick wall with a single entrance chamber, used to trap an enemy so he can be showered with arrows. The castle-like nature of these extraordinary structures helped ward off invasions by neighbouring tribes and, in the late 19th century, the Germans. As in the Somba people's tata somba nearby in Benin, life in a tata revolves around an...

Alone in Benin, a Togolese teen finds refuge and the courage to return home - Lime
Alone in Benin, a Togolese teen finds refuge and the courage to return home The heat is oppressive here in Aneho, a small, quiet town. It is hard to imagine that just over a year ago the streets were filled with noise and rage. This West African nation was plunged into violence after presidential elections. Thousands of refugees crossed the border into neighbouring Benin. Many children were separated from their families and became vulnerable to trafficking. UNICEF has so far reunited more than 200 children with their families. This is the story of one of those children. Settling in at refugee camp Koko, 17, is a hairdresser's apprentice. He remembers April 2005 with emotion. “I was at the shop when violence broke out, just after the announcement of the presidential results,” he said...
