On March 5, the Global Alumni Association of Togo (GAAT), made up of Togolese participants in U.S. government trainings and internships in the United States, held a clean-up of a field that had turned into a trash dump in the Sanvee-Kondji neighborhood of Aneho.  A number of young people and women from close by spontaneously joined in to lend a hand in sweeping and raking the trash to a common area, from where the local government removed the waste. Ambassador David Gilmour, broom and rake to hand, devoted his Saturday morning to the effort.
