Togo government and safety.
Togo has a democratic government and the population views westerners in a positive light; especially for those who are in Togo for humanitarian purposes. Togo is predominantly a safe country in African standards. The greatest threats to visitors are petty crimes like pickpocketing, and the greatest risks are during times of political election. Violent crimes do occur in Togo much like any other country, but falling victim can often be avoided by avoiding certain areas and using common sense. Safety briefings are made for all new volunteers. For the latest updates from the US Embassy, click here.
