Opportunity

School Coordinator

The Position

Our Togo team at The Village of Light, a school for the blind, needs an experienced and committed school coordinator who loves working directly with people. You’ll direct a diverse team of staff members and nationals, using your business and communications skills. You’ll also set an excellent example by shining the light of Christ’s love in a community that craves compassion, truth and justice.

As school coordinator, you will:

  • Bring your practical business experience to Togo, and provide a team of missionaries and nationals with the specific directives they need to operate a multi-business ministry
  • Have the skill-set to smoothly manage diverse operations, including a school for the blind, an aquaponics system, a ministry to the blind and an artisan boutique, as well as perform other leadership roles
  • Work effectively with Togolese government and community leaders by using sound communications skills and a heart filled with compassion
  • Understand that the visually impaired make up 20 percent of Togo’s population, and appreciate that these Togolese are often abandoned or looked down upon by others in their communities
  • Bring the determination and patience to succeed, and live an authentically Christian lifestyle
The Need

Togo is located in West Africa, a geographic area characterized by poor quality of life and little access to the gospel. Muslims are the fastest growing religious group in the country and nearly one-in-three Togolese practice some form of animism. The country has seen little evangelical outreach and maintains one of the highest percentages of un-evangelized local religions in all of Africa.

ABWE began working in the country in 1974 ministering in Togo through the ministries of healthcare and education. Our vibrant ministry outreaches have expanded and now include two hospitals, a school for the visually impaired, an aquaponics farm, a Christian radio station, translation ministries, community health outreach and much more. With so many ministries and so much work to do, we need you in Togo. Will you join us?

The Impact

Imagine the impact you can make in Togo as part of the Village of Light, especially once you witness a student embrace the love of God. ABWE has worked in Togo for over 40 years, and God has given us an open door into this community, where you’ll find our graduates working in schools, government and private enterprise. As a coordinator at the Village of Light, you'll have the opportunity to change the spiritual lives of so many Togolese and their family members. Will you join us?

We’d love to talk to you about this opportunity.
