Founded in 2014 in the peri-urban community of Tsevié, Togo, the Childreen and Youth Development Center (CDEJ) currently assists 277 beneficiaries initially identified as children aged 3 to 7 living in vulnerable or low-income families. Today these beneficiaries have grown, and we count among them 226 adolescents and young people.
