The Women’s Wellness and Empowerment Conference (WWEC) is an annual conference in Togo, West Africa that brings women from every corner of the country together, educating and empowering them through sessions that highlight the importance of physical and mental health, economic independence, women’s rights and self-esteem.
Peace Corps Togo Volunteers work in conjunction with empowered, professional Togolese women to plan, organize and execute the conference.
In its third year, WWEC is moving to one national conference. This year, 30 new participants from all over the country will join the elite group of over 100 women that have already been a part of this legacy. During the week-long conference, we will discuss the challenges that these women face and how economic independence, stronger physical and mental health and a greater self-confidence is not only possible but essential to creating the next generation of women leaders. The conference will also overlap with International Women’s Day and participants will have the opportunity to celebrate by organizing a community presentation to share what they have learned with the greater community.
