TOGO: It is lovely and a small West African coastal country, shares borders with Burkina Faso to the north, Benin to the east and Ghana to the west. Made up of just over 22,000 square miles, Togo is one of Africa’s smallest countries, with a population of an estimated 7.6 million people.
Togo is a primarily French speaking country and former French colony – gaining independence from France in 1960. Togo’s religion consists primarily of indigenous beliefs, with Christianity and Islam being the minority religions. A coastal nation, Togo has a great climate for agriculture that provides productive growing seasons; however, this thriving climate doesn’t make up for the developmental obstacles Togo faces, ranking low on the Human Development Index as No. 127 out of 151 countries.
