New training cohort on our farm

We are happy to welcome the new training year on our farm CPIA (Centre de Promotion des Initiatives Agricoles). Every year, 18 young farmers are trained to become agroentrepreneurs (AEs). The young people in their early twenties come from all over Togo to take part in the training.

Farewell to Dr Kadjassi

After 13 years with URBIS FOUNDATION TOGO, Dr. Bâ-Traoré Kadjassi, who was responsible for the health sector, retired. Over the years, we have greatly expanded this sector. It all started with a request from a small health station that wanted to provide medicines for the less fortunate.
