Microcredit is only hope to my life and my family

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.
Despite the glimmer of hope, the world newest country remains a troubled nation. People are continuing to flee into Uganda, and long-time refugees in the country fear to return home.
 
Thanks for your recent gift to Microloan for S Sudanese Refugee women project in Uganda.
 
Hope Ofiriha had granted loans to 171 active clients with investment capital from our microfinance partner Deki. This number is expected to grow monthly to reach many living in South Sudan and Uganda. Our clients have to repay their loans regularly, and Hope Ofiriha is treating Deki's fund as a liability. This microfinance investment capital is repayable to Deki when the partnership period comes to an end.
 
Your recent donations (GlobalGiving donors), and repayments collected are added up to recycle in form of a loan to 30 new clients.
 
With this arrangement, we only ensure customers repay installments in a group where she belongs not to NGO. The aim for a loan is to reach several women to do economic activity to support their families and pay fees to keep children in school.
 
In the next quarter, a new field update be posted to let you know how your contribution is making changes in the lives refugees, their families, and children, and community.

Without Education - No life

Without Education no future in south Sudan
Without Education no future in south Sudan
Merry Christmas & happy new year!
 
Thanks for your continued support to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan.
 
There is no political agreement reach between the government and SPLA in Opposition despite IGAD sponsored peace mediations since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse every day. Hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.
 
The construction of Mairo Primary School did not go as planned for two reasons. The unpaved road to Omilling was utterly destroyed due to heavy rainfall. Truck owners were not willing to deliver the building materials to the site. Owners fear to get stranded in the muddy road, and a truck might get broken down Also the political instability in the country had discouraged commercial transport firms to restrict their services within Juba.
 
Mr. Francis went to Omilling to check on the road, security, and talk to the local chief with the view to start the construction after Christmas' eve. Because January to Mach is summer time to build since there will be no rain for a while. Within this time, a truck can deliver the building materials to the site.
 
Last year we received $13,500 from Trolltech foundation (phase two). Your donations will be added up together to buy the construction materials. Even thought this is good news, it will construct the classroom to the ring beam level as we are a campaign to raise more fund.
 
Several months ago and with your money, 300 bags (50Kg each) purchased from a supplier but due to lack of transport these goods were not delivered to the site. This time we are sure the truck will be hired to transport to the site. From your contribution, money has been set aside to pay ten trip of sand, quarry stones, and hardcore stones.
 
This project is still far away from completion, but the progress is real indeed. Building two classrooms in last year helps in completing this project in the end. In the next quarter a new field update be sent, so that you know what your contribution is helping from the ground.

Don't Discriminate HIV-AID Victims

Local HIV-AIDs workshop held under tree

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!


Thanks for your generous gift to Prevent HIV-AID through Awareness project.

 

There is no political agreement reach between the government and the rebel forces despite IGAD sponsored peace talks since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse day by day and hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.

The local HIV-AIDs educational workshop that we held has proven to be useful not only for Omilling but other surrounding villages. Through these workshops, villagers are getting to know the danger pose by HIV-AIDs which was not there before the start of this project. The level of awareness has increased, and traditional artists are composing songs with an aim to educate the community on how to avoid catching the virus with a strong message of "one wife one husband." For a woman to get a micro loan, it is mandatory that she has attended three workshops by the time of submitting her application for loan. This strategy had attracted large attendance from women, and even good number of men continues to increase.

This year 200 HIV-AIDs workshops held, 1358 villagers attended, and 132 pamplets were distributed with your donations and funds donated by South Sudanese community in Diaspora (USA, UK, and Australia).

We have now increased six victims volunteering as trainers. They hold talks with villagers how to use a condom by demonstrating how to wear it. Due to cultural sensitive this did not go well with villagers. They are encouraging local leaders to talk on the dangers of AID, and promote a policy one wife one husband. We do it aggressively and loudly.

In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted, so that you get to know what your contribution is helping to impact from the ground.
