Seamtress Business - TOLO

July 19, 2021   Lydia and Ritah told us they would like to go into the seamstress business to help support their families, those who share in the responsibilities of the orphanage. They would need commercial type sewing machines.

Five men, all alumni of a seminary in Wisconsin, Class of 1956, saw the opportunity to support the venture, and raised a total of $595.   Anthony took charge, and he and Isaac traveled by motorcycle into town to make the purchases. They bought Lydia and Ritah two commercial quality, Singer machines with workstation furniture, scissors and thread, leaving them with $200 to purchase materials and run their business. This is what they wanted to do and TOLO supporters made it happen.

The ladies will be starting (Lydia already has, sewing torn clothing) their business in the girl's dormitory until Anthony moves the business to a town near Ritah's home. The girl's dormitory is largely empty because no one has yet sponsored an orphan girl (Mary is still waiting). Entrepreneurship can happen anywhere in the world when ambitious men and women see the opportunity. We are very proud of Lydia and Ritah.

School Uniforms for our Members

January 10, 2021   TOLO Leaders talked to the Headteacher of the school on the uniform issue.   He accepted to give us uniforms on loan, and each member got a uniform.   We were given three weeks to settle this ($24.10 for each student).

TOLO Leaders took several Members to School!

January 10, 2021   Today Isaac and Anthony registered Fredrick, Emmanuel, Eddy, Andrew, and Stephen in school.

TOLO Leaders take several Members to tailor

December 7, 2021   Today Lydia and Anthony took Fredrick, Emmanuel, Eddy, Andrew, Stephen and Mary to the tailor.   We bought them clothes of the same colour, so they went to the tailor to take their measurements or sizes and by the end this week, their clothes are going to be ready.

Let there be light!

November 20, 2021   Today, thanks to a generous supporter, Isaac went to the hardware store and bought a solar panel.   A worker installed it, and we have a lighted dormitory.   Now we can invite the orphan Members and their caring relatives to our dormitory for weekend stays with meals.

We have a finished dormitory

August 11, 2021   The painters are finished with the outside and inside.   Take a look.

TOLO Leaders meet with several Members

July 27, 2021   Today, while the roof of the Mother Sandra House is going on . . .

. . . the TOLO leaders met with Members Fredrick and Emmanuel to give their family fresh TOLO Food Packs.

Later, Lydia and Anthony took the boys to the building site and showed them around where they will be sleeping after completion.

Next they visited Eddy's home and they handed over clothes, TOLO Food Pack and a new mattress to Eddy's aunt. Look at the smile on her face.

Then the team met with Andrew to give him and his caretaker a TOLO Food Pack. Andrew is not usually so somber.

We wanted to show you the help and happiness we are bringing to Members even during the construction of the Mother Sandra House.

TOLO Leaders meet with several Members

June 16, 2021   Today the TOLO leaders met with Members Eddy, Andrew, Stephen and Mary.   After meeting with Eddy and his aunt, Anthony reported, "I had never witnessed Eddy smile nor his aunt.   But, when we shared the sponsorship message with them, they were unexpectedly happy.   We took photos to witness this happiness with you."

Anthony told Eddy and his aunt that Eddy has been sponsored.   He showed Eddy and his aunt a photo on his smartphone of the sponsor's family in Montana, U.S.A.   This is what brought out the smiles on their faces.

The TOLO leaders also visited with Andrew.   Anthony reported, "We also visited Andrew in the evening and he was much happy when he learned about the sponsorship.   We also showed him and his mother a photo of his sponsor who lives in East Fallowfield Township, Pennsylvania, U.S.A."

Isaac reported, "We visited also stephen and his mother, they were also very happy to hear from us that stephen is now in the TOLO organization's mind, hoping he will soon be sponsored.   Even Mary was among those Members we visited."

In the photo below, from left to right we have Anthony, Mary, Stephen, Stephen's mother, and Isaac.   Mary is a sweet girl who as of June 16, 2021, has not yet been sponsored.
