Building a vibrant community in MN

Empowering Togolese for better future

Keeping our community safe and healthy

Who are We

Diaspora Forces (DF) is an incorporated not-for-profit organization in the State of Minnesota. After more than a decade living in the USA, some young Togolese got together and decided to do something positive for their compatriots back in Togo.

First, they didn’t know what to focus on and then they decided to support the education system in Togo and raise awareness about lack of freedom, poverty and social injustice in Togo. They truly believe that education drives development. As John F Kennedy once said “Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.

The human mind is our fundamental resource.” After some meetings, Diaspora Forces (DF) was born in October 2017. The goal of DF is to promote education in Togo and help Togolese youth become self-sufficient. DF will carry out its mission by improving educational systems, promoting literacy and social justice in Togo and among immigrant Togolese in Minnesota.
