10 mongo tree seedlings have been planted but - we desperately need money to carry on with this project!
The planting project is doing well, and 10 mongo fruit seedlings has been planted with the funding we get from our GlobalGiving donors. Even though the project is moving slowing the local volunteers remained optimistic. Hope Ofiriha faces challenges in getting the funding to run this worthwhile cause.
The project has the support of local community, and there are 390 volunteers who are waiting to work on this project.
Also in this Thanksgiving season; we’d like to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for your support of our small scale projects in southern Sudan. We are incredibly thankful for your contributions to our work, and we are happy to have the opportunity to share with you just much progress we have made this year!
12 years old girl’s contribution from USA marks the start of our holiday fundraising campaign.

1560 people are drinking water from a muddy water pond, and need your help to install hand water pump to supply clean water.
Life is very difficult in Onura sub village. Most people are subsistence farmers who grow crops, and animals just to feed their families. Most villagers have no education with their children who always end up subsistence farmers just like their poor parents.
These villagers have no access to clean drinking water, and children wake up very early in the morning and walk miles over miles to nearby streams to fetch drinking water for domestic purposes. “Fetching water” is regarded women’s duty in south Sudan, and this denies most girls from schooling.
Most of the streams are full of water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, typhoid, and Bilharzias. Guinea worm disease for example is a major health problem in Magwi County as a whole.
Due to water scarcity in Onura sub village, most people in these areas suffer from water-scarce diseases like trachoma and scabies.
Through our GlobalGiving kind donors, Hope Ofiriha has raised $250, and the fund is in Hope Ofiriha’s bank account. We are still fundraising until the budget goal of this project is reach. The project will be implemented when Hope Ofiriha gets the funding.
We thank our supporters for their ongoing support and Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with all of you in 2011- and years to come.
The staff of Hope Ofiriha and volunteers wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season, to your family, friends, and colleagues!
The Onura wood clay stoves will save several lives and fight deforestation and climate change in south Sudan and worldwide.
The women running "Onura fuel efficiency clay stove project", have been meeting a lot of obstacles in running this life-saving activity due to lack of money in these recent months. But because this is life and death the local women are determined to keep the project going. They managed to set up two groups, and purchased 100 plastic sheeting to cover clay stoves with the funding they received from our Globalgiving donors.
Quote from a beneficiary; Clay stoves are our healthy and clean environment – we will do everything we can to help ourselves, and the environment.
We take this opportunity to thanks our Globalgiving donors for their ongoing support, and we look forward in working with them in 2011, and years to come.
The staff of Hope ofiriha, and I wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season, your family, friends, and colleagues!
