Planning for 2018!

This month, it has all been about planning for our projects this year. Our staff have met several times over the course of the month in order to plan for the start of of all our projects. There are a number of important things which have taken place:

1. Identification of sites where activities will take place

2. Meetings with stakeholders such as schools and communities in order to consolidate objectives for the year

3. Distribution of playing kits to children.

With regards to this project, facilities are being readied in order to get girls to start training as soon as possible. This include the repair of tailoring machines, the cleaning and restoration of the tailoring centre as well as identification of beneficiaries for this year. 

The training of peer leaders who will train girls on life skills is penciled in for February 22, with one of our other partners who will lead the training.

More updates will be provided once the training is completed at the end of the next month.

As you celebrate thanksgiving this year we wanted to share why we are thankful both as HODI and the communities we work with in Marsabit. With all your support we have been very innovative in how we reached out to the communities to help build resilience! Today we are sharing with you the stories of 2 mothers whose children are not able to have a normal life because the mothers cannot provide even one meal a day. The next 120 days they do not have to worry where to get the food as it will be provided.

Despite the numerous challenges like drought, ongoing conflict, climate change, violent extremism & political instability! Northern Kenya region offers significant potential to address the issues affecting it and transform. Sharing with you a story of how small little steps can make a huge difference in building resilient communities! GlobalGiving was so impressed with HODI's work that they did an article about it! Take a moment to read, learn and share! Only together we can amplify our little voices!
