Do not give ready-made food to children - give them education  so they fish for themselves!

Thanks for your recent generous donation to Educate Children & Fight Poverty in Southern  Sudan project. Your commitment to help  build Mario primary School is certainly appreciated by our board of trustees,  and those who will benefit most - the children!

What is next? Work is progressing well! But due to heavy rainfall the production of interlocking soil block has been temporally  stopped until October. The villagers managed to produced 7500 of soil blocks using 50 bags of cement. There are also 40 bags of cements stored at the site, and are to be used once the rain ends.

Instead, the villagers have shifted in making the local materials and collected approximately 100 tonnes quarry stones, lake sand, and hard-core stones manually. The local materials are still needed since water cannot melt them away. This rainy season will be used to produce tonnes. The children, women, and men are motivated to build Mairo Primary School as most now understand the importance of educating their children than before.

This project is still a long way from completion we will be sending you the quarterly report, so you get to know what your subscription has helped influence and what have been achieved from the ground.

Your  donation gave Omilling a microscope they have been longing for!

Thanks for your recent generous donation to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan project. Your responsibility to protect the needy against the Malaria glue have been appreciated by our board of trustees and those who will benefit most - the children!

Even if this is a life-saving initiative worth the global support the project has not attracted supporters as it has been anticipated. However, the villagers in Omilling, and members from Hope Ofiriha remains confident the two microscopes the group has been longing for will  be provided one time. 

What is next? Your donation together with funding from a corporate sponsor allow Hope Ofiriha purchased a microscope from a firm in Kampala. Thank you our donors!  Thanks GlobalGiving for making this possible! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

But still a microscope is needed to reach our goal. Let us gear "Hands UP against Malaria attach. Images of a newly purchased microscope will be posted in the next report.

We are requesting you to maintain to promote Hope Ofiriha to allow the helpless villagers have the microscope they have been longing for years.

Women are being encouraged to use clay stoves for cooking!

 Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop Cook stoves from Killing in South Sudan project. Your commitment to save women from toxic oxygen and fire burn is genuinely appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most.

This initiative is encouraging women, and girls to use clay stove for cooking to improve their health, and reduces the danger to contract lung disease. The local clinic reported no mother or a girl requesting treatment for fire burn during cooking as most are using clay stoves.  Two new trainees have been identified to go for training in Uganda.

Agnes Idiongno has completed her skills training on July 22, and returned to Omilling to share the skills with fellow girls. She promised to train 20 girls to spread the knowledge in the community. I will also produce the clay stove for income generation Agnes said.

The beneficiaries are intensely eager to see this project progressing, and  need your help, so many are trained in the skill.
