toyinMeet Toyin….our E.H.R. General Manager. Toyin was born in Egbe and was raised like every other kid in Egbe at the time. He went to school but never finished, the need to help the family put food on the table was more important. “ I really didn’t see much in my future,” Toyin says.

He joined the Carpenters Union and started learning about carpentry. One day he was visiting some of the guys from his Union at the Egbe Hospital. He noticed right away some things they were doing wrong and corrected them. The workshop HOD noticed this and a few months later when a bid was needed for a roof, they called Toyin along with another man. “I was so excited for the opportunity and worked hard on my bid but the other man got the job. That was a bad day for me, I was so disappointed.” Toyin says. After the roof had been constructed the quality was not up to E.H.R. standards. When the next bid was needed, Toyin was chosen this time.

Toyin started with our temporary laborers, directing and managing them. Mark took him under his wing and mentored him in masonry, how to delegate and manage projects and more.

Now Toyin is our E.H.R. General manager and one of Lenny’s right hand men. Toyin is full of character and is part of the group I have named “Wahala Makers” which means trouble makers. He makes me laugh every day and he can shake his bum bum at weddings like no other.

Screen Shot 2014-11-02 at 2.50.43 PMToyin has a beautiful wife Kemi who helped lead him to the Lord many years ago. He has 4 boys (ages 10,8,6,4) and a brand new baby girl only 2 months old named Abby, after Abby Anderson.

Toyin is also the care taker of several of the abandoned mothers in my kitchen. If they ever have a leaky roof, electric problem or need help with a purchase so they don’t get cheated…..Toyin is there. I have even seen him hand out his own hard earned money to help one of these girls. He is a blessing to the Egbe community and he is a blessing to the E.H.R. Project. I am constantly amazed that God has brought the perfect people at the perfect time to complete his work in Egbe.
