Mothers’ club in Togo
Following the 5th Panafrican Conference, held in Ouagadougou in September 2000, the Togolese Red Cross decided to rethink its activities in order to maximize impact at the community level, in accordance with the ARCHI 2010 initiative (Health Initiative of the African Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies). The Togolese Red Cross mobilized its volunteers into two groups of actors to support two different types of activities, namely community health and food security: Community first aiders (CFA) and Mothers’ clubs (MC). This case study presents the MCs activities , whose purpose is to bring together mothers from different regions to engage in activities aimed at improving their living conditions and providing a model for the community.
