What We Do

T.O.A.M works closely with the community leaders in Connecticut and orphanages in the Caribbean to produce a workshop that focuses on the health and wellness for each child ages 5- 18.  The personal care workshop engages the children in conversation about hygiene, teaches them a new skill on the production of personal care products, and sparks an interest in entrepreneurship. 

 

During school breaks, T.O.A.M. provides all the supplies needed to carry out the workshop and when possible leaves enough supplies for them to make more after the workshop is done.
