Brazil here we come!!
Brazil here we come!!

We have struggled with communication and keeping you updated on our progress. As the connection went from bad to worse the number of girls in our programs increasely immensely. Thanks to your generous contribution as HODI we have covered more grounds and reached more girls. One such girl is Ntarisa who struggled in her personal life with no father and a sick mother but she has made it in life. Your generous support has seen her make it in life and even be a role model to other younger girls. This August for the first time ever we will be holding the first ever Horn of Africa Cup in Marsabit to help break the silence on violence against girls and also our boys will be shooting to score not to kill. We look forward to a greater partnership with you all. Thank you again!!

She made it!

In the recent past we struggled with communication and keeping you up to date on our progress. As the connection went from bad to worse the number of girls increased immensely day in day out. This is greatly due to your generous contribution as HODI we have covered more ground and reached more girls. One such girls is Ntarisa who struggled in her life and education with no father and a sick mother. The only choice she had was marriage but she defied the odds and is now a role model to many more younger girls and she travelled to share her experience in Brazil during the World Cup, thanks to your donations!

This August for the first time ever we are holding the 1st ever Horn of Africa Cup to help break silence on violence against girls and the boys will shoot to score not to kill and we look forward to generous donations.

2013 was a tough year for HODI as an organisation and we only managed to pull through the tough situation. The new year has come with new blessings and opportunities for HODI and all those who benefit from the activities and programs of HODI. The same year saw us losing one of our promising young girls as she dropped out of school due to teenage pregnancy and getting the acceptance from the family and how to handle the entire situation seemed tough.

One year down the line the child-mother has every reason to smile as she revives her dreams of returning to school which seemed lost and never to be regained. Your donation has helped her be trained in SHAMBA HODI the kitchen gardens and provided with a kit to start a small garden with 10 sacks. Here she will be planting Sukuma Wiki a common vegetable that she will feed her family with and sell the surplus to earn an income which will go towards her education.

As a pastoralist girl child second chances are hard to come by but through your donation you have lit the light of hope for a CHILD Mother. Tell us what you think and share her stories with your friends and family. Together let us RESTORE HOPE!!
