In May 2019, TTF USA Board Members Colleen Lindner and Michelle Meade spent two weeks at the TTF Zambia office. In anticipation of their trip, they raised over USD$2,000 through a GoFundMe campaign to revamp the nutrition program and take the staff out for a much-needed one-day staff retreat. Thanks to this support, 25 undernourished children and their families received nutritional support for three months. Read more about one of the beneficiaries of this initiative here.
We also spent a lot of time working on a three-year strategic plan for the organization. The team took time to reflect on the vision and mission of TTF and how we want to move forward. It’s very exciting to recall where TTF has come from, how much it has grown over the years, and most importantly, the changes we have made and will continue to make in the lives of our clients.
The process culminated in a one-day staff retreat. It was a fun and reflective day for staff and the board, packed with practical exercises and fun games to help build relationships and help staff see the value of each person in the team and how improving communication can help improve teamwork and lead the team to achieve results.
We also took time to appreciate some of the very hard-working staff. Our cleaner and office help, Patricia, got the award for the most hard-working staff in 2018, and our Deputy Director of Programmes and Operations, Justin got the award for the longest-serving TTF member of staff. Hearty congratulations to both!
We are so grateful to the many people who have supported TTF and continue to support our work. Your donations make a real, meaningful impact on so many lives. Through your generous donations, we are able to provide a complete package of medication, nutrition, counseling, and social support for entire families. Thank you!
