Original school situation
In 2017, the Managing Director of the Peter Krämer Foundation travelled to Togo as part of a Bundestag delegation to intensify bilateral relations between Germany and Togo. At the intergovernmental conference “Le printemps de la coopération” in Lomé, the Togolese Minister of Education, Prof. Dr. Komi Tchakpele, asked the Peter Krämer Foundation to build a school in Togo.
Upon his return, Peter Krämer was quickly ready to comply with this wish. At the beginning of 2018 Christian Krämer and Tilo Braune travelled to Togo again to get a more concrete picture of the situation on site. The urgent need was quickly apparent and the learning situation was miserable in many of the visited places.
Competent local partners were found who had experience in school construction, as various visited new schools and vocational schools showed. Through a German NGO with experience in Togo, the DAZ. e.V. and the local partner IT Village, “our” school was subsequently built.
On April 1, 2022, the “Ecole Peter Krämer” was opened with a ceremony in typical African tradition in the village of Nanergou in the poor north of Togo in the savanna region.
