‘Digital School Togo’ (ENT, ‘Ecole Numérique Togo’) aims to include digital technology in education in the West African country. The initiative is currently in its pilot phase and started at the LETP, a state high school in Aného-Glidji.

Togo’s education system faces challenges such as lack of adequate funding, resources, and teachers. To address these difficulties, the government, in collaboration with the World Bank, who will provide 15 FCFA ($3 million USD), will revamp the education system.

The minister of post and digital economy, Cina Lawson, seeks to introduce ENT in all secondary schools. As part of her support for the project and for the ministry’s goal to incorporate IT in schools, she distributed computers to the pilot school.
