At Kiitan Foundation, our vision has always been to create a better condition of life for everyone, a vision that resonates across the globe. On September 1st, 2023, we had the privilege of turning this vision into reality in Ayetoro, Osogbo, Osun State. It was a day filled with goodwill, warmth, and a strong sense of community.
In preparation for this event, our team packed boxes filled with clothing, shoes, and hair wool, all neatly organized for the women of the community. But before we could embark on this journey, we knew that raising awareness and mobilizing the community was essential. So, we reached out to Mrs. Temiladun, the woman leader of Ayetoro, who graciously supported our cause.
The day of the program arrived, and our program manager, Adedokun Helen, took center stage. She eloquently explained the mission of Kiitan Foundation, highlighting our past activities and the objective of our visit to Ayetoro. We had the pleasure of hosting ten wonderful attendees, and each of them received a box filled with adult clothing, shoes, and hair wool. For those with children, we had an extra box of children’s clothes. It’s worth mentioning that the children’s clothing was in limited supply, which led us to opt for community distribution instead of our initial plan to distribute to orphanages, as discussed during our quarter 2 review meeting.
This event marked a significant milestone for Kiitan Foundation as it was our first community clothing distribution in the state. The smiles and gratitude from the attendees were priceless. They were particularly touched by the baby clothing we provided, a small gesture that meant the world to them. They wholeheartedly expressed their appreciation and implored our organization to continue these noble initiatives. Our team of dedicated individuals made this event possible. Led by our program manager, Adedokun Helen, and supported by the front desk officer and two passionate volunteers, we worked together to bring a little more warmth and comfort into the lives of the Ayetoro community members.
Kiitan Foundation’s mission to create a better life for everyone took a giant leap forward on that memorable day in Ayetoro, Osogbo. We are committed to making a positive impact, one community at a time. This event has strengthened our resolve to continue spreading goodwill, touching hearts, and creating a brighter future for all. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported us in making this event a success, and we look forward to many more laudable programs in the future. Together, we can make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time. See photos from the event below:
