VIE ET VIVRE is a charitable organisation established in Togo 2006 by Afia Mala and her husband, Nick Hales. It is governed by a committee of six individuals who meet regularly to take strategic actions. VIE ET VIVRE’s aims are to:

  • Fight poverty
  • Improve the living condition and social wellbeing of disadvantaged children, and especially children suffering from life threatening conditions such as Malaria and HIV/AIDS.
  • Provide an all rounded support to ensure that children reach their best potential
  • VIE ET VIVRE hopes to contribute to the improvement of children’s living conditions in both urban and rural Togo.

Children are some of the world’s poorest people. In Africa a child dies every 5 seconds from hunger and every 30 second from Malaria. One in six African children dies before the age of five. Most of these deaths could be prevented (Africa, 2015). Nearly 2 million children under 14 years old are HIV positive (UNICEF). Only 57% of African children are enrolled in primary education, and one in three of those does not complete school (Africa, 2015). Something has got to be done. No matter how little, will contribute to a child’s welfare.

The world is changing at an extremely rapid pace with expected population growth. it is important that actions that we take today are sustainable to deliver a lasting legacy for future generations. Children of today are tomorrow’s generation. We need to empower them, train them and provide them with the basic tools to help them reach their full potential. We need to stimulate children’s thinking and prepare them for the future. We must invest in their wellbeing.

VIE ET VIVRE believes that every child has the right to the best possible standard of education and to the best possible start in life. Supporting and assisting children through their primary education and training is to empower them and provide them with the necessary tools to grow and improve their future.
