Welcome to Peace Corps Togo

2016 Women's Wellness and Empowerment Conference

The Women's Wellness and Empowerment Conference (WWEC) is a 10-day national conference held annually in Togo that brings together strong female leaders from communities all across the country. Togo is home to many dynamic, bright and driven women, but all too often they are overlooked as vital community agents of change. WWEC 2016 brought 30 especially motivated women together and provided them with an empowering, professional platform to learn how to become advocates for women's rights and women's health in their communities.
