This summer, a group of thirteen Grenoble engineering students will go to Gamé Kové, a village 70 km north of Togo’s capital, Lomé. This is the program’s fourth consecutive year.
Nonprofit group Solida’Rire is coordinating the month-long mission, which includes five first-year Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA students. A first group of seven students will depart in mid-June, and a second group of eight will take over in mid-July.
This summer the plan is to build a new building for the community’s school, and have the structural work and roof done in time so the building can be used at the start of the next school year. A new team will return the following summer to finish the inside.
While they are there, the volunteers will also teach some math and French to the local children.
