"Dunozi, on est ensemble", projet de santé communautaire au Togo

Hello everyone,

My name is Céline Vauthier, I am currently studying for a Master degree of Population and Development Sciences at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Belgium.

While travelling and working on my thesis in Africa, I went to the Kolowaré village in Togo. This opportunity made me realize that I truly wanted to do something for people who weren’t born as lucky as the most of us are in Western Europe. Touched by the situation of poverty in which the villagers were, I decided to mount a project in partnership with the NGO "Eco-village Togo". Charles Sedia Komla Dodzi, the President of this NGO helped me a lot during the creation of this project.

In Kolowaré, more than a quarter of the population suffers from malaria and they do not have any health care budget available. Four hundred forty eight people die from malaria each year, which equals to one person dying every minute. Malaria, is a potentially fatal disease transmitted to humans through the bites of infected female mosquitoes.

But, the Artemisia plant is a consistent solution! Drinking an Artemisia herbal infusion three times a day can successfully cure malaria over one week time and at a cost of one and a half euro only.

The main objective of the "Dunozi" project is first to produce Artemisia, which will also create employment for 16 villagers, but above all to help treating thousands of malaria infected people every year for only one and half euro per individual over only a one-week period. In addition, the production of Artemisia generates profits, which will help financing access to health care for as much villagers as possible and in parallel to this, creating other projects such as making drinking water more accessible or funding scholarships for young uneducated children.

Having concerns about the environment, the project was conceived in a totally ecological and sustainable approach, so that it does not involve any harmful impact on our planet.

By contributing to the realization of this project, you are funding these four crucial main objectives:
