Republic South Sudan can develop when the population can read and write in order to tackle the numerous obstacles of development, and without Education is nearly impossible to defeat poverty. Education, development and peace are like brothers and sisters. They go hand in hand.
Our greatest concern is Jane Amitto who is currently doing medicine at Makerere University Uganda. Her semester fee is $385 (payable quarterly). Her fees include accommodation, lectures, foods, printable study materials, and Lab. Do you have any suggestion to help Amitto?
We are keeping children in schools that Hope Ofiriha had been paying for their studies for several years through this program. In the first term 2013: three new students were admitted in this program, two girls, and a boy. We are also paying the school fees for 18 pupils in north-Uganda. These children will return in November 2013 after writing their primary school leaving certificate "final exams" so they join their parents in south sudan.
These children are very eager to see this project progressing. We need your help to keep them at school.
The Wood clay Stove is very important to protect women from fire burn and toxic oxygen.
Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop Cook stoves from Killing in South Sudan project. Your commitment to help the needy get out of poverty is really appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most – the women!
Cooking with clay stove will improve girls’ and women’s health, and reduces the danger of beneficiaries to contract lung disease.
In October 2012: Hope Ofiriha paid Agnes Idiongno for skills training in the clay stove making; and in small kiln building. The course duration is three months but has been extended as Agnes is not catching up quickly due to language barrier, and also her class has been delayed because students aren't enough. So she starts training on April 22 and finishes July 22. This project has three potentials; is income generation driven, improves health, and protect Moms from fire burn.
The beneficiaries are very eager to see this project progressing. These women need your help to be trained in clay stove making.
