Tomaro's C.H.A.N.G.E. was founded by a woman who sees the mission of the organization as more than just a dream. Having experienced quite a bit in her life, including being a young, single mom struggling to make ends meet, Tomaro has a clear understanding of the emotional and psychological strain a parent may feel.
Considering the many issues that families experience today, diapers and hygiene products for children is not generally at the top of the "needs" list. This however, is a huge issue. Having to decided between the purchase of food items or diapers is a daily occurrence for many parents, and often times, choosing food over a diaper can cause health issues for the child. No parent should be in such a position, but unfortunately, many are.
Assisting parents in properly caring for their children, allowing them the opportunity and ability to focus on other important aspects of their child's present and future well-being is something that is extremely important to Tomaro. Although she wishes it was possible to do so, she is aware that helping these families is impossible to do alone. She lives by the motto, 'It takes a village to raise a child, " and further believes that through her vision and our mission, we can make a difference in the lives of many children, "A life today, a nation tomorrow'....one family at a time.
