Thank you for we have more girls engaged than ever before!

In the recent past we struggled with communication and keeping you up to date on our progress. As the connection went from bad to worse the number of girls increased immensely day in day out. This is greatly due to your generous contribution as HODI we have covered more ground and reached more girls. One such girls is Ntarisa who struggled in her life and education with no father and a sick mother. The only choice she had was marriage but she defied the odds and is now a role model to many more younger girls and she travelled to share her experience in Brazil during the World Cup, thanks to your donations!

This August for the first time ever we are holding the 1st ever Horn of Africa Cup to help break silence on violence against girls and the boys will shoot to score not to kill and we look forward to generous donations.

2013 was a tough year for HODI as an organisation and we only managed to pull through the tough situation. The new year has come with new blessings and opportunities for HODI and all those who benefit from the activities and programs of HODI. The same year saw us losing one of our promising young girls as she dropped out of school due to teenage pregnancy and getting the acceptance from the family and how to handle the entire situation seemed tough.

One year down the line the child-mother has every reason to smile as she revives her dreams of returning to school which seemed lost and never to be regained. Your donation has helped her be trained in SHAMBA HODI the kitchen gardens and provided with a kit to start a small garden with 10 sacks. Here she will be planting Sukuma Wiki a common vegetable that she will feed her family with and sell the surplus to earn an income which will go towards her education.

As a pastoralist girl child second chances are hard to come by but through your donation you have lit the light of hope for a CHILD Mother. Tell us what you think and share her stories with your friends and family. Together let us RESTORE HOPE!!

New year, new offices

The Horn Of Africa Development Initiative (HODI), the organization behind the HODI Peace Center for 1000 children, has recently moved to a better office. This was done to accomodate more staff and increase privacy for community members who visit our offices. We have some fantastic memories of our old offices but change is always needed in life to motivate people. We hope to continue doing great work with the commnuity within which we work.

The Peace Center has so far received over $6000 in contributions from numerous donors who have kept the dream alive. But this still leaves the project requiring about $30,000 to be completed. Thus, we still need you to continue supporting this project and bring us closer to our goal. Over 1000 innocent children in northern Kenya need you to ask your friends, relatives and colleagues to contribute to the project in order to have a shelter over their heads. Let us keep the dream alive!
