Thanks to all your generous donations, the girls dormitory has been fully funded! Over 60,000 bricks have been baked and construction will begin in the coming weeks. As soon as construction begins, the farm will be planted and Mountains of Hope will be on its way to being self-supporting. While this is a tremendous accomplishment, more funds are needed to complete the full vision and move all the children out of the rented building and into the newly built one. We need your help to make this happen!
We dream of the day when Mountains of Hope will not simply be a small home for 20 orphans, but it will house 100 children in need, it will comprise self-sustaining micro-businesses, and it will be a change agent in a community plagued with poverty.

Greetings our partner in development,
GlobalGiving’s Recurring Donation Campaign has kicked off December 1st. Throughout the entire month of December, GG is matching all new monthly recurring donations 100% up to $100 per donor. They have $25,000 in matching funds available and matching will last until funds run out or December 31st at 11:59 pm EST.
$20 monthly recurring donation could do alot more in the building project especially building the girls dormitory, girls are more vulnerable and marginalized in this society, the earlier we rescue them, the better, if we coud beat this globalgiving deadline, we will have got almost all the money needed for this project.
Lets get on recurring donations now, thank you

Construction yet to commence
By James Malinga - Executive Director
construction yet to commence
The orphanage building construction is yet to begin.
The new orphanage is in a beautiful rural area, away from the filth and congestion of the city area, with plenty of clean air and fields will be surrounding the building site. Here’s the proposed boys and girls dormitory to be constructed
Each building will accommodate 15 children with a separate room for the house mother, 30000 bricks have been made and baked in preparation to start construction. We are employing employ the services of local people to assist in the building program; however the buildings will be constructed under the instruction and design criteria of the district planner.
As part of the move to self-sufficiency in future we will develop areas for the growing of food crops, 01 acre of land is going to be for farming. This will commence once the orphans have relocated to the property. Other areas have been set aside for recreational activities; however this too will be developed following the transfer of the orphans to the property. Such areas will be required to service both the school and the orphanage.
This is, of course, a big project and donations are urgently needed to help see this amazing project through to completion. Your recent gifts will help us do construction of one dormitory to accommodate girls, surely this accommodation will provide these kids with a new home. Thanks for being part of us in helping us make their dream come true. Construction progress report will be sent to you by 30th November 2012.
