Restoring Hope

Thank you for your continued support as your support is helping many families to cope with changing climate and related disasters.

The main challenge currently being experienced is over reliance on food aid and most families don’t believe they have the capacity to grow their own gardens. Lack of sufficient water is another major fallback with the kitchen gardens. Despite all this hurdles we hope to raise $300 to help 1 family to start kitchen garden on pilot basis. The amount raised will be used to train the household on kitchen gardening; provide seeds; ploughing equipments, fertilizers and water tank. We hope to train 10 households in 10 villages and they will replicate the same in 10 households. The ultimate target is to reach 100 households and we cannot do it without your support.

Girls taking the lead!

Girls Take The Lead 1
Girls Take The Lead 1

HODI has been trying to engage girls for a long time and this year 2012
is the greatest of them all. Over 2,000 girls have been engaged through the
HODI Girls Champion Initiative and the local community including the mothers of
the girls are accepting that girls too can play football.

Over 10 schools have been involved in the school training program with
20 HODI coaches offering training in football and life skills. We made history
by engaging the girls and female teachers in the trainings and slowly things
changed with more girls coming on board each day.

In order to select a team to represent HODI in East Africa tournament,
30 girls were selected and 15 boys. The teams will be traveling to Moshi
Tanzania to participate in a tournament and what is important is the fact that
the HODI teams are led by girl’s coaches and team leaders for the first time
ever. Girls are coaching fellow girls and taking up leadership responsibilities
within the organization. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your
continued support as we continue championing the rights of girls and women to
take up leadership.

“What I have learn in HODI are life lessons and I want to impart that
on other girls in the teams I coach” Dirre one of the girls coaches.
