$1 – buys 3 mongo tree seedlings - $2 buys 6 mongo tree seedlings.
Our fruit tree planting programme is on progress since it was started in 2009 and with the small resources that we have had, together with donations from GlobalGiving donors, Hope Ofiriha staff and the ONURA local communities have achieved amazing results.
The fruit planting programme has been very successful since the first year, and a total of over 50 fruit seedlings have now been raised in 1 tree nursery. It is also estimated that about 400 local volunteers have worked on this project and will be working in future as well, although we now reduced the number of 1 tree nursery to 10 people since 2009 due to lack of funding. The 10 volunteers are concentrating on improved management of the nursery planted fruit trees.
Once the funds are secured the 390 local volunteers will be recalled to participate since this is a large project. This project has the support of the entire community of Omilling people because they see the benefits in the practical sense.
We will be posting latest update in the next three months to let know you the progress the project is achieving. Thanks for partnering with us.
Thanks for your ongoing support!
Hope Ofiriha helped 318 Sudanese children to complete their primary education since 1996 in Uganda.
Hope Ofiriha is looking for donors to sponsor the many children we have on waiting list. We know that the current recession has made thing difficult for all, and our GlobalGiving donors are also hit badly. But poor children suffer the most. And the ongoing global economic recession adds problem to an already existing poverty in which they were born. Still you can consider giving $10 monthly. Your money together from another donor helps sponsor a poor boy or a girl to go to school in Uganda.
Linda and William have been running the primary school sponsorship programme with great enthusiasm. During 2010, Hope Ofiriha sponsored 5 students to go to various primary schools in Uganda.
Beatrice, Agnes and Linda have drawn up rules for the programme so that money is used wisely for the students who deserve help. Unfortunately, several students have had to be removed from the programme due to lack of funds, but few students are still benefiting from the sponsorship programme. The sponsored students at each school nominate fellow students to be their representative; he or she reports back to Ms. Linda and are the main link with that school.
In July 2010, Ms. Linda organized a mini-party for those sponsored poor children which was held at Kajjansji- primary school. We had a good turnout with 24 students attending. They were very positive about the sponsorship programme, and it was very rewarding to see their various gratitude and commitment to do well.
A quote from a sponsored boy:
"Before Hope Ofiriha sponsored me I used to be in the street begging or playing football because my mother is poor and cannot pay my school fees. I have a good future because I want to be a doctor."
You will be hearing from us again in the next three months latest update and we look forward in partnering with you until the objective of this project is fully achieve.
Thanks for your continue support!
We are grateful to our Globalgiving donors for their ongoing support to ONURA Women Beekeeping Project Sudan.
Our Bee-keeping staff are facing hard time to run the project, and to help more women involve through distribution of Beehives due to donation short coming.
We also understand it is hard time for our donors due to current economic recession which has affected our charity donations. For the past months the bee-keeping donations has fallen by 95%. But the women of ONURA local community of southern are optimistic, motivated and are working hard to bring changes into their rural communities.
The staff of Hope Ofiriha understands that if the world is hit by current recession, and their donors are no different. But people who suffer most are the poorest women of ONURA rural communities southern Sudan. They have no choice but they will be waiting for your “help”.
A quote from a beneficiary:
Bee-keeping provide us with ongoing income for years. This will give hope to women, children, and our village. All we need are beehives - the forest will provide bees, and honey we sell in the local market and buy basic goods.
Thanks for reading this report and you will be hearing from us again in the next three months with latest update from the field.
Thanks for generous contribution!
