The Force - Female Empowerment Through Education

The Force's goal is to promote gender equality within the large field of development cooperation. As a young organization, they set out to implement their first project in the Republic of Togo, where they want to increase awareness about women’s rights while improving the living conditions and future prospects of girls and young women. The goal is to support, empower, inspire, collaborate and share their ideas with the promising and talented women in Togo. And to prove that little steps on a local level can make a huge impact.
The Force, is an international cooperation between three associations, which are linked to each other through a mutual, validated partnership agreement:
