5V7P Story

The Republic of Togo is a state in West Africa, located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean ( “Gulf of Benin”), the so-called Golden Coast and it is one of the smaller states of the African continent. The coast in the south is only 56 km long. The population is about 7 million and nearly 30% of the population is below the poverty line.

Since the end of the 15th century, the coast of Togo has gradually become the target of Portuguese, Dutch, French and English, especially business with slavers. From the second half of the 19th century the German colonizers grew stronger, in 1884 the German Protectorate was proclaimed over the southern part of Togo, and in 1905 a German colony became a part of the whole territory. Immediately after the outbreak of World War I, Togo occupied the French and British troops. In 1946, Togo became governor’s territory in the British and French administrations. Ten years later, a plebiscite took place in the British-administered part of the country, which led to its joining the Gold Coast (Ghana). The French parts were granted internal government.
