A final important announcement!

Today, we have an important announcement for you!

Two weeks ago, our staff went on a monitoring trip to Eritrea, where they visited the ‘Ecological Ovens’ project. They were warmly welcomed by two families, which now have a mogogo oven. The families said the oven literally changed their lives. Actually, they previously had just a fireplace inside their homes, that had really harmful consequences on their respiratory system. Since the mogogo are equipped with a flue to eject the smoke, the quality of their lives has consistently improved. It was so fulfilling to hear that the families were very happy to participate in the building of their ovens and now they are able to help other families to build their own. Moreover, the government is going to take over the issue and build new ovens in accordance with the technique we used so far. For these reasons, we are proud to say that our local partner now considers the project self-sustainable and therefore it can be carried out from now on independently, without our financial support.

From now on our focus will be the project ‘A sheep for you’, which consists in the donation of sheep to mothers who live in difficult economic conditions in Eritrean rural villages. This is why we ask you to continue your commitment by supporting the project ‘A sheep for you’.

We are deeply grateful to you all, because your generous contribution made the achievement of this project possible, thus changing the lives of many families. We are sure that together we can do even more!

A milestone agreement

We have great news from our project “Flowers in Bloom”! The agreement among the Addis Abeba University, the University of Chieti and the Bicocca University in Milan, has been finally signed. This three-year work plan includes first of all a new collection of data concerning the situation of sexually abused children in Addis Abeba, since the last study on the issue dates back to ten years ago.

This new baseline is fundamental in order to assess the real social impact of our project. In this way, IPSO will be able to involve other children in the project in a new way, and to monitor the outcome in a more effectivve way. We are sure this is going to determine a decisive increase in the quality of this project!

Finally, we would like to renew once again our thanks, since without your support it would be impossible to carry out all of this. We couldn’t be more grateful!

A sheep is a blessing!

Thanks to your help in the last 3 months we could buy 10 goats and/or sheep for the poorest families of the rural villages. The sisters gave this precious gift to the mothers in need when they came to the clinic with their children for the usual check-up visit. They were so happy that they started singing and dancing: a sheep is a real blessing for them! We hope they’ll be able in quite a short time to create a little domestic livestocks which can provide food enough for all their children. For the time being only 2 families were concerned, but as far as the number of sheep will grow the chain of solidarity will extend from them to their neighbors.

May their smile be the best gratification for all of us. Together we can make the difference!
