2018 is well under way, and we at Engel & Völkers New York City are determined to make it a year of generosity as well as of success. That is why we are encouraging our team to donate to the “L’école privée Engel & Völkers,” the primary school of the E&V Charity in Togo, West Africa.

L’école privée Engel & Völkers, was founded by the E&V Charity in 2008. In 2017, the first class of students to attend the school graduated. Every student passed their CEPD exams with excellent grades, and eight of them ranked among the ten top-achieving students in the entire region of Agou. “We are practically bursting with pride,” effused President of the E&V Charity, Ninon Völkers of these successes. Without the E&V Charity, many of these young scholars would have had no access to an education. The charity is currently supporting the construction of a secondary school adjacent to the primary school.

For only 30$/month you can provide the gift of education to a primary school student at L’école privée Engel & Völkers. We at Engel & Völkers New York City kicked off 2018 by sponsoring two Year 2 students, Dzidefo (age 8) and Yawo (age 7).

The monthly contribution covers the costs of teaching materials, school uniforms, and two meals a day. All sponsors will receive up-to-date photos and a report about the child they are sponsoring at the end of the school year. We are thrilled to watch Dzidefo and Yawo learn and grow over the year ahead and will keep our loyal readers informed of their achievements.

If you are interested in joining us in sponsoring a child, please contact Ina Schlüter, Executive Director of the Engel & Völkers Charity e.V.: Ina.Schlueter@engelvoelkers.com.
