THOL as an organization works on a wide range of activities in particularly different communities within the Ugandan society, and it being so, no one can ever see the entirety of our work but the good news is what we are able to do in support of our people is quite remarkable. We don’t usually draw attention to the work of individual staff – we work as a whole. I personally am proud of what has been achieved so far even when there is still great need and at the outset I thank you all who work tirelessly far from your homes and in remote or difficult places for the bigger vision and mission of this organization.
In the work we do, there are so many unsung heroes- staff members who assess needs, draft proposals and later assemble teams that move, train just to take help within communities its most needed. So basing on the above, THOL staff are doing much more than anticipated.
There are many external threats to Reproductive health that public health measures are so limited to influence communities like non-government organizations do. But Reproductive health services can make a significant contribution to the health of families and communities and there are many effective tools, that need to be made much more widely available and accessible of which access we have to these communities. we can help mothers with reliable skills as well protect their children, making sure they feed appropriately and as well teach families about the knowledge of safe water. This takes a huge amount of energy, resources and above all commitment and as we continue doing so, in the process, is building reliable communities able to stand on their own with all that’s taught of them.
THOL’s expectations are high, and as we continue to meet them. With the expectations and the trust placed in us, have come unprecedented success within communities – tangible proof of the high value of determination of the staff.
We can look ahead into the new biennium with confidence, hope and resilience. We know that there are vast problems within communities, intractable poverty and the certainty of unexpected outbreaks of diseases due to poor sanitation and unclean water but we also know that we have the right staff to help meet those challenges. As it is a good time to look back, reflecting on achievements, we look forward to see what we still need to accomplish.
