Thanks for your recent generous gift to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan.

Your commitment to help the needy to get liberated from extreme poverty is really appreciated by our trustees, and those who benefit most- the Children!

Your donation will buy 25 bags of cements, and 10 iron sheets for roofing. Currently, HOPE Ofiriha only buys cement to produce interlocking soil blocks.

A project targets to make 60 000 pieces interlocking blocks. A bag of cement mixes with 8 wheelbarrow of sub-soil produces 105 pieces.

We need 572 bags of cement for the entire construction; the activities are on hold while fundraising is running. The production of blocks is not started because we need 250 bags of cement to begin. The children are really eager to see this progress progressing.

While this project is under implementation, we will be sending you our quarterly reports about our worker. You will get to know what your donation has helped impact, and what we have achieved.

Once again, thank you for all you do for Hope Ofiriha.

Omilling's former child-soldier problem is a complicated one!

Astrid Wang and Lunde Arneberg from the Oslo School of Architecture & Design are returning to Omilling to construct Mario primary school in November. The plan A – is to build one classroom, girl-pit latrine, and a teacher’s house. They are busy re-designing the school’s structure to match village’s standard.

Fighting against decades of marginalization and intense state of poverty that spawn the practice, it is sometimes hard to imagine there is a way to help. Funding school building may seem like a small thing to do when thousands of children are living in such a hard conditions, but this school provide more than an education. It provides hope, dignity, and a sense of well-being. But most of all, it brings the new-beginning into the lives of these precious former child-soldiers.

Hundreds of former child-soldiers find hope in the fact that they attend school each week. For many it is their escape from a harsh reality. They are getting an education that will help them get a job one day and keep them from being marginalized.

Ten in 10 girls in Omilling cannot read and write. And only one out of 300 girls in Omilling is at Juba University.

Omilling builds a school for the first time in the village’s history. But they lack the building materials. Could you consider helping to build Mairo primary school?

What will you give?

Hope Ofiriha has purchased15 additional bags of cement with the funding you donated.  These cements are in the store.
