2021-2022 School Year
The Position

Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, ABWE is limiting international travel of short-term missionaries originating from the US and assessing the level of risk per country per US State Department guidelines. To inquire about travel restrictions or exceptions, please contact go@abwe.org. We would love to talk to you!


The Togo South team is looking for a single (female preferred) who can commit to serving our Missionary Kids in an academic year. Tasks would include:

  • Grading
  • PE
  • Recess
  • Crafts
  • Listening to younger students read out loud

Lesson planning or teaching would not be a responsibility unless desired.

Applications do not need a teaching degree - college students and recent graduates are encouraged to apply!

This position is contingent on housing on the field. Must be willing to manage personal finances, meals, shopping, etc.

The Need

Togo is a small West African country, home to just over eight million people who make up at least 46 unique people groups, including many that are unreached with the saving knowledge of the gospel. Despite the prominent population of Christians (45%) and growth in followers of Islam (16%), over half of the Togolese syncretize native animistic practices and beliefs with their primary religion. Help is needed to advance the gospel, particularly among the younger generation.

Ministry opportunities in Togo have grown tremendously, and have even created a platform for outreach into neighboring countries. Whether through healthcare, education, providing Christian resources through print media and radio, or working with the growing local church to equip the next generation of national believers, there is an place for every missional skill set. Is God leading you to join us in ministry to the people of Togo?

The Impact

The foundation of faith is understanding, and the foundation of understanding is education. As a teacher missionary, you have the unique opportunity to use their classroom as place of ministry. Along with teaching about grammar and algebra, they are able to disciple their students and point them to the ultimate teacher: Jesus. The world needs more teachers like you because we firmly believe a biblically-based education is integral in raising up strong followers of Christ.
