Lumela from everyone at TTL!
We saw great success in our safe home this month! We gained 4 new clients. We reunited 3 clients (pictured below!) with their caregivers this month after they had reached stability in their health. We will continue to monitor the growth of these children through our outreach program. We love seeing these children reunified and are excited to see them graduate from TTL’s programming soon!
Thank you all so much for your support on Giving Tuesday! We raised over $2,000 which will be matched by Facebook! This will go into supporting important projects and of course help out the children in our outreach program and in our safe home! Thank you again for giving back as we start the holiday season!
We are very close to finishing the new school building for our early childhood education partners in Maluba-lube. We are so grateful for our partners at Aktionsgruppe Gummersbach für die Welthungerhilfe for helping to fund the project. The school should be finished before, just in time for the children to return to school! The pictures below show the progress so far!
We also kicked off construction on rental properties that will serve as a means of income for TTL. In just two weeks, we’ve seen lots of progress! This project is supported by the US Embassy in Lesotho and we expect construction to be finished in a few months.
Lumela, hello! My name is Annie Fort and I am the current fellow for the Touching Tiny Lives Foundation. I graduated with a degree in sociology from Wittenberg University. As a student at Wittenberg, I worked with the Lesotho Nutrition Initiative, a non-profit that packs and ships meals to organizations all over Lesotho, including TTL! Through my experience at Wittenberg and in my current position at TTL, I have learned about Lesotho’s history and the complex issues the nation faces today. I am honored to work with TTL and cannot wait to see what this year brings!
