Every Kids Share Workshops is unique and custom-designed to fit the community’s needs we reach. We can’t have successful workshops without the careful guidance of foreign countries’ educators and volunteers.
We are proud to be working with La Touche in Lome Togo! Sylvie Enyonam Mensah is the founder and program facilitator who has made it possible to coordinate Kids Share Workshops with her community of youth. Together with Kristina Applegate, they will help support each team leader and their group of children.

Bénédicte Agbemadu, La Touche Volunteer
is a proud married mother of three children.
Naturally, I am a person sensitive to the concerns of others in general, and this sensitivity becomes more vital when it comes to children and teens. I feel it is essential to have good listening skills when advising and helping people empty themselves from grief and worry. I do this through carefully guiding, motivating, and praying with people as my daily way of life.

Denis Rozand La Touche & Kids Share Volunteer Adventurer, Born 1963 in Dahomey (actual Benin). From 1964 to 1985 growing up studying in the Alps, Grenoble. From 1985 to today, I have been developing trucks, heavy machines, and busy importation companies without an electronic system to help African companies build themselves. My favorite hobby is anything adventurous. I am constantly scrutinizing maps to discover small villages to find the best routes through the bush to visit them.
Denis represented Togo in the 1996 Kalimantan Camel Trophy, race in Borneo. He competed with Kristina’s husband William, who represented England. My next step in life is to give my time by helping other cultures connect to help form a better understanding of our world.
