We (Jo and Susan) are traveling to Togo to volunteer at Hospital of Hope in Mango this summer. Our chikdren chose Kossi because he was the only child at our church who lives in Togo...they are very excited about their parent's trip and their new friend Kossi. We looked up where Kossi lives and it says about 11/12 km from the International airport in Lome. We arrive July 20th and spend the day in Lome...we really want to go see Kossi amd take him a birthday present and meet him!! We need direction how to make plans to do this if possible. Thank you for your time! :)

Susan, thank you so much for blessing Kossi with sponsorship as a whole family! I know he will be incredibly happy to find out you have sponsored him :). We would love for you to have the opportunity to meet Kossi and take him a birthday present when you visit Togo in July. We do require an eight week notice before your trip so we can have a background check done and arrange the visit with Kossi and his project. To inquire about an individual visit with him, visit our tours page and click on the blue box labeled "Visit Your Sponsored Child". All the information on how we set up visits will be there, and you can then plan your visit by clicking on the orange box labeled "Plan Your Visit". If you have any more questions, we would be happy to help you. Our tours department also has their own email for more specific questions :). I hope you get to meet him and that you enjoy your time volunteering with Hospital of Hope!

My sponsored child is in Kenya and I will be in Uganda for six months. I would like to arrange to visit her as I am about 3 hours away (maybe more depending on road conditions). Can you help?
