Promotion et Développement Humain (PDH)
A place where those who need assistance can come and be welcomed, supported and helped.  From educational evenings with orphans, HIV/AIDS information sessions with Adults, Hospital visits and treatment for the sick, work with the mentally ill and home visits.  PDH continiously lends a hand to those in need.  For over 17 years now, they have been committed to improving the lives of those around them.  Today, they turn to you and ask you for a lending hand so they can better serve the ones in need in their communities.

PDH welcomes orphanned children and children of HIV/AIDS parents at their facilities regularly.  The days are spent with some light games and entertainment and most importantly free educational classes.  Public schools near the PDH centre in Lomé Avédji will hold over 100 children per class.  Desks that are made for two are shared between up to 5 children.  It's easy to see that this can severely affect the quality of education a child can receive and those who may struggle in any given subject will be left behind.  These children are left to learn on their own as their gardian at home is usually not in a place to assist them with their school work.

We all know that knowledge is Power!!
This is why PDH holds free courses in a variety of subjects in order to assist children in a supportive manner so that each child may have a better opportunity to succesfully learn.  Two of the potential classrooms for these free classes currently are not usable as they are not completed and are missing a roof.  The unfinished area of 9mX6m has been left this way until now because of a lack of funds.  We hope that by raising  our Goal of $3,500CAD, PDH will finally be able to provide a higher quality of supportive educational classes for those in need.  This is our big project of the year!

With the holiday season also fast approaching, we are also collecting funds in order to make some small gifts to the kids.  We want to make this year a Christmas to remember - with toys, shoes, clothes, food and even a surprise fieldtrip. Creating positive happy memories is all part of the supportive development we promote for the kids of PDH.  If you would like your donation or part of your donation to go towards the Christmas event please include the word "Christmas" in the text area of your donation.

We ask you to kindly help us reach our goal by making a donation no matter how big or small or by sharing this page in order to spread the word.  PDH thanks you for your generosity and on-going support.

To all of our supporters. Luana and I wanted to take a moment to once again thank everybody for all they have done since we have arrived in Togo. Your support has allowed us to realize soo many things and make a real difference that will remain long after our departure.
Our volunteer journey with PDH is coming to an end and we will be leaving this coming Monday, however the works on the roof is continuing and we hope that PDH will be able to get the roof completed soon with the help of the local community and future International Volunteers.
This page will remain open and we will continue to provide updates until the full completion of the roof.

A million thank you's from Luana, Katie and the full team at PDH.

The roof as of 18 January, 2017

The work is going well. We have collected nearly half the funds we required and the guys are working hard everyday to try to get this roof finished. 100% of the funds collected on our GoFundMe page have been used for the construction of the classroom roof. Our current funds have almost finished with only about $80.00 USD remaining. We hope to collect the remaining funds so we can purchase more cement, rent a cement mixing machine and cover labour expenses. We have come such a long way and the end is near. Please help us spread the word by posting, sharing, or doing anything creative that will make people aware of our wonderful project. From all of us at PDH -THANK YOU!!
