Small budget goal is working well for Hope Ofiriha!
Our donors have raised over $5000 towards of our budget goal of $50,000. This is a good moment for Hope Ofiriha. Since April we made a new policy of posting project with small goal of $1500 live on GlobalGiving. Once the goal is raise we then increase the amount with similar goal until the project budget is entirely achieved. So far this policy is good for Hope Ofiriha as a small NGO.
With the funds raised so far 10 women will be given loans on July 15, 2011. These women have been identified. Our Loan Manager will be training these women on how to operate small businesses and book-keeping. We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to get Sudanese women out of poverty in Kampala.
Thanks to our donors! Thanks to GlobalGiving for sharing our project with kind people! Without YOU - Hope Ofiriha would have not delivered its mission.
In the next 3 months new updates will be posted, and also to report how your contributions are impacting on the lives of the Sudanese women in Kampala. Hope Ofiriha appreciates partnering with you. We will continue to team up with you until the goal of this project is achieved.
Hope Ofiriha runs HIV-AWARENESS local educational workshops in Omilling villages Magwi County.
HIV-AID awareness is a vital step to rural communities to understanding the health issues. Our volunteers have been involved in a variety of health activities, ranging from general health education, and HIV/AIDS awareness.
We are carrying out educational workshop programs design to equip school children, women and men with more information on HIV/AIDs so that they make informed and responsible choices on their lives. HIV/AIDS workshop is also made to educate the villagers about the dangers of contracting HIV and how to avoid it.
We thank our GlobalGiving donors for their donated HARD CASH. Without their contributions Hope Ofiriha would have not been in the position to operate the HIV-AIDS Awareness activities.
While our team has encountered a number of obstacles in the past the months, they continue to meet difficult circumstances on the ground with the positive outcomes.
We are glad you are being with us. Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you until this project achieves her goals. In the next three months we will post a new update, and also tell how the impact of your contributions is making the differences along the way as this project is gaining ground every day.
Around 99% of households in Omilling rural settlement still rely on the unprocessed biomass for cooking.
Around 99% of households in Omilling rural settlement still rely on the unprocessed biomass fuels (wood, dung, crop residues) for their daily cooking and heating. In these households, the fuel is burned indoors on open fires for poorly functioning stoves often with no chimney. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the greatest Global burden of air population exposure occurs indoors in rural communities.
The effects of smoke exposure have acute lower respiratory infections and cause lung disease. Eye problems are also frequently reported. Over the last 2 years, the goal of the project aimed at improving the household environment and to substitute traditional open fires for cooking with fuel-efficient stoves.
The clay fuel–efficient wood stove will provide employment and also ripple incomes for the local women after training in the production techniques and marketing skills. Two women whom we trained before are operating their fuel-efficient wood clay stoves as a business.
We thank our supporters for their contributions that helped Hope Ofiriha trains women From the CASH you donated we are adding two new women to receive training. By the end of 2011 we hope to train 500 women to produce 5000 fuel-efficient clay stoves!
We are very glad you are with us. Hope Ofiriha looks to partner with you until this project achieves her goals. In the next three months a new update will be posted to tell how the impacts of your contributions are making the difference along the way as the project is progressing.
