Women and girls are waiting for the grinding mill every day! Every month!
With your help Hope Ofiriha has raised $2460 and these funds are in bank account as the fundraising is still ongoing.
Cooking in Omilling is regarded as the duty of women and girls. They are still using their hands to cut maize kernels from cobs, grind maize into smooth powder. They have to squat on their knees for hours which is hurting their backs and joins. There are no other choices for them!
Fetching water is also regarded as the task of women and girls. Since water is very scarce children and women must walk miles upon miles every day to nearby streams to fetch water. This is the hardest work which cannot stop as people must eat food and drink water every day.
Women are very tired and several of them are too weak to grind maize flour to feed their families due to intensive labour they went through. They will continue in this cycle of hardship until death unless they are help. Previous generations were living on these conditions until death, and now their children are in the same cycle of hardship.
But we are facing the challenges of raising enough money to buy the Grinding mill. We are looking for 10 people to sign up for recurring monthly donation. Having $10 from 10 different people each month is better than getting $1200 in December – as one time donation.
Say if 10 people sign up for recurring monthly donation - Hope Ofiriha can then make arrangement to get the grinding mill on hire purchase from the supplier in Uganda.
Hope Ofiriha will in turn pay the supplier by installment each month $300 *24 months= $7200. Please sign up for recurring monthly donation of $10 – only. This is the best way to help the women and girls in Omilling village.
We thank you for your contributions and in the next three months we will post the new project updates from the field so you know how the project is progressing along the way.
On May 2, 2011 GlobalGiving Recurring Donation begins at 12:01 am EDT! This is a great opportunity for you to sign up for monthly recurring donations only $10.
Why recurring donations?
Recurring donations are a consistent and reliable source of income for our organization. This helps us in planning our activities several months ahead.
By making a recurring donation, you pledge to give to your project every month. GlobalGiving will automatically deduct the donation amount from your credit card each month.
Hope Ofiriha appreciates that you give monthly only $10 than to donate $120 in December as one time gift. $10 each month is a lot of money and it will go a long way to make a huge difference in South Sudan and Uganda. In Hope Ofiriha there are no small or big amounts. Every cents count!
We need a total of 10 people to sign up for a monthly recurring donation of only $10 each month. Could you join us please!
GlobalGiving is giving away $12,000 in bonus awards during this campaign!
Here are the main reasons why you should consider signing up for monthly recurring donations to Hope Ofiriha;
- The top 20 projects that receive the most new unique recurring donors will each be awarded a $500 bonus.
- One project that raises the highest donation amount per month from recurring donations will be awarded $1,000.
- One project that attracts the most new unique recurring donors will be awarded an additional $1,000 (for a total of $1,500!).
- Projects must have at least 10 new unique recurring donors to be eligible for bonus awards.
The final results of this campaign will be adjudicated in August 2011. Bonuses will be awarded based on the amount raised and the number of unique recurring donors at this time. In some cases, projects may forfeit bonus awards if donors cancel their recurring donations before the awards are given.
