Our Staff

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.
