Dear Friends of TYP
My name is Tariro, I joined Tariro family in November 2012 when I was doing A level. I completed high school and proceeded to the university and graduated in 2017 with Honors degree in Sociology and Gender Development Studies. I worked as a project officer under Save the Children international and left at the completion of the project. I got married in April 2019 and started my own family. Later in 2019 I acquired a certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation.
I had a fun experience working for a Japan based online streaming radio station as a Presenter. Leaving TYP family was a sweet and sour transition; things never got difficult in all facets because of the lessons and skills taught at TYP, however leaving my very own behind and making new relations became a challenge. They are those small skills and life lessons that I learnt from Tariro family which are making my life easier even after leaving the house. I was taught enough and I’m gladly referring to them on day-to-day basis. Many thanks to the trustees, donors, and visitors: I can manage my household.
Counselling sessions by Barbs, Tuesday and Thursday night services, teachings from the trustees and the symposium among other activities left a mark and are still impacting my life. I am currently running a clothing boutique, to operate it the legal way it’s now officially registered. Business has been moving at a low key due to Covid and the series of lockdowns, it’s only now that I’m trying to pick pieces, hoping to broaden Antable Closet so that it’s known for providing different products. The main goal is to open branches in other cities nationwide by end of 2022.
