Welcome to the West African nation of Togo, a French-speaking country that was once a German colony. The people of Togo launched a "Green Revolution" launched in 1977, making the nation self-sufficient in basic foods, except in times of drought.
We work with the Eglise Evangélique Indépendante du Togo (EEIT) and other missions and churches, as together we respond to the spiritual challenges in Togo and beyond, with a particular focus on unreached people groups in the country.
Traditional African religions are still dominant and Islam’s influence is rapidly spreading. The church is also growing and enjoying greater freedom to meet the dual challenges.
SIM’s work began among the Kotokoli (Tem) people in 1992 with radio outreach. A follow-up multi-purpose centre offers students a place to study, where friendship is still the primary means of outreach.
SIM works alongside Kotokoli believers and local church leaders to reach the local population, concentrating on chronological Bible teaching. We offer local church and mission leaders training to reach out to those among whom they live and a pastoral training course. SIM enjoys an excellent partnership relationship with other agencies sharing common goals.
