From 2012 to 2017, Togo mobilized XOF92 billion for its national strategy for grassroot development

(Togo First) - From 2012 to 2017, XOF92 billion was mobilized for the national strategy for grassroot development (PNDB) in Togo. The figure was disclosed last Friday at the review session for the programme chaired by the minister for grassroot development, Victoire Tomégah-Dogbé.

In detail, over the period reviewed, the monies raised were used to establish more than 300 agricultural processing units, develop more than 1,300 micro-projects, as well as restructure and reinforce more than 5,530 grassroot development committees.

Also, more than 2,600 basic socio-community infrastructures (classrooms, health centres, markets, wells…) were built under the PNDB.

Let’s also note that, still under the strategy, 30,000 women received funds and more than 27,000 temporary jobs. More than 29 million meals were also served in more than 300 schools all over the nation.

The PNDB includes many government-financed projects which benefit from technical and financial support of partners. Among the latter is the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the West African Development Bank and the United Nations Development Programme.
