Receive Greetings from HODI. As an organisation based in the most rural and remote area of Kenya it all seemed impossible when we begun to raise funds online but with your help and donations we have managed to raise $4,143. We want to take this opportunity to thank all our donors who made not only our dream but those of the 1,000 children we are hoping to reach together. The entire family of HODI and the community is very grateful to have received your donations. On their behalf we want to say THANK YOU!
This is how the funds will be utilised:
1) 25 Balls purchased at $10 each = 250
2) Two teams (Girls under 14 and Boys under 14) training for 5 weeks at $ 50 = 250
3) Free 3 child mothers from forced marriage and return to school at $ 300 each = 900
4) Support to 2 drop out girl for a term in school at $ 100 = 200
5) Help purchase 1/2 acre land for HODI Peace Center = 2,200
All the five girls receiving support are soccer players in the HODI team and were forcefully kidnapped for marriage between the age of 12 - 14 years. Through your donation 5 of them are back in school and it is our hope we will be able to help them through the years to complete their education. It happened to two of their mothers but through you support we have broken the cycle.
Thank you again for taking your time to read through our report! Tell us what you think and how best we can work together to save more girls and reach more child warriors!
