The U.S. Embassy Lome is joining forces with seven Togolese Ministries, eleven civil society groups, the Peace Corps, UNFPA, and UNICEF to create a comic book for adolescents that will illustrate and raise awareness on a variety of themes, including the importance of pursuing education, rights for persons living with disabilities, rape, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, human trafficking, and early and/or forced marriage.  Representatives from our partner organizations met at the Embassy on September 17 for the First Text Development Committee Meeting – the initial step in developing this important educational tool. We expect to release the comic book by April 2016, to be followed by public messaging, distribution, and trainings for schoolteachers and journalists.
