About the sponsor


AV-Jeunes, the Association of Volunteers for the Promotion of Young People, is a non-profit organisation born from the initiative of several young Togolese in 2004 who wish to take action for the youth of their country. It takes action in the field of sexual and reproductive health (SRH), as well as promoting gender equity and women’s entrepreneurship. At the request of several partners, they are creating Youth Centres in several regions of Togo. Over the last 3 years, its main actions have focused on the provision of SRH services through HIV testing, consultations, STI treatment in schools and family planning through advanced strategies.
In 2017, the team decided to change its practices and take a digital turn in order to take advantage of the technological leap brought on by the Internet and the development of applications. Their goal was to improve the accessibility of its services and to reach out to the young people of their country as much as possible. It is finally developing the eCentre Convivial project inaugurated in January 2018.
