Social networks make civil society voices heard in Togo
Strong internet penetration in Togo enables influencers to make social networks effective promotion platforms. Journalists and civil society activists also take advantage of this to make their voices heard.
Women activists also have an online presence in Togo. This is the case of 2018 Fellowship Alumna Djatougbe Akouvi Aziaka, an ecologist who is on both Facebook and Twitter. As well as being a journalist, host, television presenter and social entrepreneur, she is also the founder of the web TV Eco Conscience TV, an online television channel on sustainable development in Togo.
