In conjunction with the ART program for patients who have been left without any source of income to support their families, we have launched a Income Genrating Sewing Project. There are 12 people trained so far to sew school uniforms, bags and some other items which are then sold and the funds distributed to help them. A trainer was brought in for 2 months to teach them and all the sewing machines were purchased, building rehabilitated and all is in place and the project is going very well. Boston Mbilikita is the one in charge and is doing a very commendable job.

For the last few years Chitokoloki Mission has run a pre-school for 5 and 6 year olds. The teacher Molly Nkanza is doing a great job in teaching the kids English as well as many academic subjects, Bible verses and stories, choruses and basic skills.

Recently the children were provided with new uniforms which look very smart. Any visitors that come to Chitokoloki will always receive a warm singing welcome if they stop by the school.
