We applaud you for paying school fees

We are going to school because of you!
We are going to school because of you!

We applaud you to pay school fees for our kids in exile.

South Sudan needs future professional generations to defeat Tribalism to promote peace, coexistence, and embark on a sustainable development. No education! - No peace!

At this first reporting in 2017:
Your money and funding from Trolltech Foundation we will continue to pay fees for 20 children already in our program from 2016. Two new girls have been included in the program.

Due to current civil conflict, countless children fled from South Sudan war to live in an outskirt of Kampala as refugees. Most are not in school because it cost money to access primary education in Uganda. They had applied for support. But limited funding HopeOfiriha unable to help all of them.

In a second quarter, HO posts a new field update report to inform you about the influence of your contribution how it is positively transforming a life of poor refugee children.

Growing instability triggers new displacement
Fighting between armed groups has driven thousands of people from their villages in Eastern, Central, and Western Equatoria states since the start of January. Several thousand had taken refuge in Uganda.The Relief Agencies are increasingly concerned at recent growing uncertainty around South Sudan and its serious impact on the civilian population.

UNHCR alerted that localized fighting between rebel armed groups and government soldiers and an apparent breakdown in law and order are being reported in and near Yambio, some 300 kilometers west of Juba.

Sporadic gunfire is commonplace, and there has also been an increase in crime involving car-jackings, attacks on government property, looting of civilian homes and sexual assaults,"

At a time of this reporting in 2017:
Your funds and money from other sources helped purchased various difference fruits seedlings; 10 mango seedlings, 5 jackfruits seedlings, 12 avocado seedlings.

These seedlings and other supplies were driven to Magwi County, but due to insecurity, the truck came under attacked and looted by the government forces between Nimule and Amea-Junction, along Juba highway in February 2017.This is bad news to the donors and our beneficiaries who could have planted the seedlings to provide food for future generations.

In next three months, HO will post a new field update report to inform you about the impact of your contributions.

ONE man! ONE woman!

HIV is destroying Africa!
HIV is destroying Africa!

The civil unrest had hindered the progress of HIV-AID Awareness campaign in 2016 and earlier 2017.

At the time of this reporting in 2017:
The armed rebels occupied three-quarter in rural Magwi County where the project is operating. With difficulties, few local educational workshops were carried in areas where internally displaced persons are living. Our team carried two workshops in 2017 even though their life was under threat because to rise HIV-AID awareness is lifesaving. It is important villagers are informed of the danger of HIV-AID and how to avoid it. Since the start of this initiative the rate of catching HIV-AID had dropped, and the rate of blood voluntary testing had gone up.

This project is educating the use of unsafe sex, but more important the villagers to avoid to have multiple partners. Our slogan: one man to one woman! Have a blood test in a same clinic same day!

The slogan of one man to one woman is attracting interest and we are pushing it hard to reach a wider population.

We will send a new field update report in a second quarter to inform you about the impact of your contribution from the ground.
