Whether you are considering a career in Law and Human Rights or a graduate seeking some practical experience, you will gain a wealth of knowledge and exposure to various practises in our Human Rights Project in Togo project. A minimum of four weeks is required on the project in order for you to be able to contribute effectively and gain as much worthwhile experience as possible.

Togo is amongst the world’s poorest countries and has received its fair share of criticism over its human rights record. Today many local and international organisations, including Projects Abroad, are working to improve the situation of the poor, repressed and vulnerable within the country.

You will need an intermediate level of French to take part in this project and will work alongside our local staff in Lomé, the capital city of Togo, and gain first-hand experience of human rights law in practice. Your precise role will be determined by your level of previous experience and your specific areas of interest. You could get involved in areas such as children’s rights, women’s rights, correcting prison conditions, police accountability and electoral transparency.

An average day may involve translating documents from English into French, studying various cases, compiling reports on conferences and missions; conducting research; attending court and helping with various awareness campaigns. You might have deadlines to uphold and could also be asked to represent your organisation at professional events or meetings.
