“I advocate humility in the performance of our activities,” are the words of wisdom that Aimee wanted to share with us. Next to modesty, Aimee Abra Tenu has a set of virtues that enabled her to change our world for the better.
Aimee is at the forefront of initiatives that make a true difference in this world though education, empowerment, recycling and nutrition. She is currently the president of the non-profit organisation Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus (STEJ Togo). STEJ is active throughout semi-urban and rural areas in Togo, and is committed to educating children and women and providing drinking water.
Since 2017, Aimee is the head of “Viva” space, a 100% ecological space, built with recycled objects, that functions as a community centre for youngsters and adults in Lomé.
“It is important to teach children the importance of a green planet from an early age,” Aimee says.
“Viva is a unique space of expression for all those committed, that also protects our dear environment by making our waste valuable again and giving it a second life.”
