Practical training for masons and joiners in Togo

We have set ourselves the objective of supporting social and economic development in our neighbouring communities. In doing so, we strive to take a strategic approach and establish a link to our core business. In the area surrounding our plant in Tabligbo, Togo, we are working with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) to develop modular training courses for masons and joiners.

Creating new opportunities

In Togo, particularly in rural areas, the quality of services and products in the building trade is often inadequate. This is primarily due to a lack of opportunities for practical training. For this reason, many of the workers at the operating units are insufficiently qualified. At the same time, the lack of training opportunities for young people hinders their integration into working life, which in turn encourages migration to towns and cities. The aim of the project is therefore to create new professional opportunities for young people while improving the quality of the local building trade.
