ILA-Afrika - Association Local Initiatives and Action-Afrika
ILA-Afrika has been founded by a group of 9 Togolese, including 3 women having qualifications and experience in sociology, business, translations, law, secretaryship, accounting, and writing. The association's aim is to help towards durable human development through the protection of the rights of children, of women and of agricultural production groups. We hope to attain our aims through sensitization of target groups and the public, conferences, symposia, seminars, collaboration with non-profits with similar aims, and lobbying. We are looking for partnerships and funding for our projects.
