Project TEMBO would like to thank everyone who helped to make our annual luncheon a tremendous success on December 1st .

Thanks to your support, more than $13,500 was raised to support TEMBO projects in northern Tanzania. 125 friends of TEMBO attended our largest fundraiser of the year and enjoyed a fashion show of colourful kangas and a traditional song, a project update on TEMBO’s work, as well as the African marketplace, raffle and silent auction. A delicious lunch was catered by Red Apron and students from the Child & Youth worker program at Algonquin College were also recognized for their ongoing support of TEMBO through their annual fundraisers at the college and in the community.

We sincerely appreciate the efforts of all the volunteers who helped before, during, and after the luncheon. Your efforts, and the hardwork of all our volunteers throughout the year, make TEMBO’s work possible.

‘Tis the Season for TEMBO Fundraisers

Our Lady of Fatima Church recently held its 4th annual cranberry sale in support of TEMBO. Thank you to parishioners who volunteered their time to sell homemade cranberry sauce and all those who purchased as well.

Earlier this month, a local book club hosted an evening with well known CTV journalist Craig Oliver. The club had read Mr. Oliver’s autobiography “ Oliver’s Twist” and the evening provided an opportunity for members and their guests to learn more about Mr. Oliver’s life and career. All proceeds from the event were generously donated to TEMBO.
