Stephen and Beatrice Nyitho began taking orphans into their home. (Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27) As the children grew, they taught them their own trade, tailoring, and started the Child Community Development Initiative (CCDI) NGO to expand the work to more children.
They suggested to TILT that it would be useful to expand this to other impoverished children too poor to afford vocational training. TILT purchased sewing machines for training and as starter machines for graduates. Next, they suggested to TILT that it would be useful to train up others in metal fabrication and repair, and to provide cosmetology training. TILT gave them a grant of $20,000 to begin this.
They have carefully accounted for every expenditure and for each student.
