University of Kara, Togo Volunteer Agency launch online course on volunteering and citizenship

The Kara University launched an online course on volunteering and citizenship on November 27, 2023. The project was launched in Kara, in partnership with the Togo Volunteer Agency (ANVT). 

The course includes three modules: civic engagement; volunteering and development; and equity, gender and inclusion. They will be delivered in hybrid mode.

According to the two partners, the project aims to provide enrolled students with key volunteering skills and civic values “so that they are prepared to play an active role in the development of Togolese society”.

“We aspire to see both national and international volunteers and learners emerge from this training with a renewed vision of their role in society, not only armed with technical skills but also imbued with the profound values of citizenship and commitment to solidarity”, said ANVT DG Omar Agbangba.

Students who take the course will receive in-depth knowledge of the institutions of the State and crucial information on their rights and duties to participate fully in the public life of the country.

In addition to Kara’s students, local and foreign volunteers can take the free course.

The recently launched course is the fruit of a partnership concluded in 2020 by the ANVT and the University of Kara. The partnership’s goal was to enable the university’s students to learn civic values, helping them become more employable after graduating.
