Kailend is a dynamic forward thinking NGO striving to engage, empower and educate impoverished communities in West Africa.
Kailend believes in a holistic approach to development, running initiatives ranging from agricultural development, microfinance and women’s empowerment to sports and education.
Kailend’s progress would not have been possible without the support of its partners as well as local and international volunteers, who contribute valuable insight and manpower to all of its programs. This fits in with sustainable development goal 17: Partnerships for the goals.
The Global Goals Campaign
Since I have been volunteering with Kailend I have met great people from different countries along the way! The experiences gained have been truly fulfilling and memorable.
My experience has been such a great introduction to a host of new skills that I have been privileged to learn while volunteering on some of Kailend’s projects. It has truly been a worthwhile learning and personal development experience.
Kailend has provided me with some great experiences to work with many really inspiring children and make a real difference to people who truly deserve it. Kailend has given me the opportunity to do this whilst work alongside an amazing group of people from all around the world.
Kailend to me has been a dream made reality: being able to help others in a meaningful way, working towards a future where disadvantaged people will have the skills and confidence to help themselves. I am happy to have been a part of such a team, where an open heart and mind are all you need to begin to make a difference
Kailend is one of the few non-profit organizations in Togo who focus on helping the pariah’s of society, providing weekly sports coaching sessions for street children and vocational training for vulnerable women. Their focus is on the future, not the past. I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet the people who are behind Kailend and see the important work they’re doing.
Kailend has been an opportunity for me to really give back to Togo, where I do my graduate research. To work to empower women and care for orphans while doing research on the role of festival performances on Ewe communities, has been a perfect match. Dancing, playing and singing with the children at Vogan orphanage, and Mama Charity orphanage and teaching the first women’s empowerment group new skills makes a big cumulative change in the communities we work in and I am really proud to have played a part.
