Hope Ofiriha wishes you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year!
 
There is no political agreement reach between the government and SPLA in opposition despite the IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse every day, and hope for peace is weak as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state between the regime and rebel forces.
 
Thanks for your recent generous gift to Combat Malnutrition with Beekeeping in South Sudan project.
 
We reported that wild monkeys destroyed all bee hives that pushed this initiative to the scratch level. The loss was a negative blow only to women, but to children and men of the village who had benefited from the money from the sale of honey.
 
your contribution and donations from other sources helped the project purchased materials to make 50 beehives to distribute to ten families, but due to unpaved road the hives were not delivered. In January not a rainy season, we will arrange to transport these goods to Omilling.
 
Transport services to rural areas were suspended since social unrest broke in Juba last year, it was not easy to hire a truck to drive outside Juba. With improved security in the rural areas south Sudan, we hope this time the vehicle will be employed to deliver the bee hives.
 
In the next quarter, new field updates report posted on GlobalGiving website, so you get to know what impact of your contribution is helping with the project on the ground from south Sudan.

Hope Ofiriha wishes you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year!

There is no political agreement reach between the government and SPLA in opposition despite the IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse every day, and hope for peace is weak as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state between the regime and rebel forces.

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop Cook stoves from Killing in South Sudan.

With loan capital from our partner, Hope Ofiriha granted loans to clients who are in business of making and selling clay stove to make a living. These customers are living in Namboole in outskirt of Kampala. The clay oven is a booming because the cooking device is popular in East Africa with demand remaining constant. With Deki fund, Hope Ofiriha collects repayments every month from each client. The loan capital is a liability that means at the end of partnership period Deki will reclaim their fund back.  

As reported in the last quarter, five women returnees been trained in clay stove production skills for the duration of three months. The trainees have applied for a loan to start clay stove as income generation activity to provide for their families with basic needs and pay fees to keep their children in school. The repayments collected from your previous contributions and new donations - sum up be cycled as a loan to the new clients.  

This form of loan although are always recollected by the group to give to new borrowers, the aim is to reach many women along the way who are head households. The group do not need to repay the loan capital collected from GlobalGiving donors, but Hope Ofiriha ensures the loan recycles within the group to benefit many clients.  

In the next quarter, a new field progress report be posted, so you get to know what impact your contribution is making in the lives of people in the project on the ground.

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Give Fruit and a Greener Environment project.
 
There is no political agreement reach between the government and SPLA in opposition despite the IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse every day, and hope for peace is weak as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state between the regime and rebel forces. In spite of this, HO continues to work with local communities in this very abnormal circumstances.
 
Your money together with contributions from others had enable a project to buy 50 banana seedlings, 20 jack fruit seedling, and 25 eucalyptus seedlings. These seedlings were distributed to the families who are interested to plant tree seedlings to protect the natural forest and fruit trees to provide nutritious food for future generations. Few seedlings were planted in a treebank, a piece of land that was donated to the project by the Traditional Authority .
 
These fruit seedlings will benefit Omilling in the future, when with the right management and proper care they will produce enough fruit to eat, and sell to make a profit. We also believe the project will attract commercial activity in the area that will boost the local development.
 
In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted so that you get to know the positive changes your contribution is making from the ground.
