ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Ms. Sophie Bemba
Am Sophie Bemba is the founder and project co-ordinator of TORUWU:
“My mother had a hospital at home and I used to see poor women carrying their sick babies on their backs coming to her for treatment. At times she used to encourage them to complete their medical treatment but some of them couldn't. ,I was saddened by a widow whose son was terribly sick and couldn't afford the bill
By then I was 14 years of age and I told my mum that once I grew up I will form up a Training organisation to teach Women,youths and children Income generating activities so that they could take care of themselves and their children.
I need your cooperation to make my dream come true.”
