Onura needs Grinding to provide food

We need a grinding mill - Said Achan.

This project has received a total of $ 6,190 out of a budget goal $7,500. To keep women’s moral high we reported to them each month, and this way will ensure the final success of implementing this project.

These women came to our field office, asked, asked, and asked for a grinding mill machine. We always told them HOPE Ofiriha has kept the money raised in “ restricted fund bank account”, and once the funds accumulates its budget goal it will be released out. We also told the beneficiaries this project could not be implemented soon because it was difficult to raised money in short time due to reasons stated below:

Financial global crisis – our donors are committed to helping Omilling but they too are also victims of current recessions.

Funds were sent in small amount each month from our donors. We kept these funds in a bank for until it reaches $7,500. This created frustration among some of the beneficiaries: some don’t understand why money is sent in small amount: others believe USA is the richest nation - and is a piece of cake for an American donor to fund this cause: they don’t see why this not at once. This initiative will be operated as income generation, each beneficiary is charge $1 to grind the maize.

By the time of reporting, a project needs only $1,310, - to reach the goal. This is a one-time unit cost; therefore we need $7,500 is to be paid at once to order the grinding mill machine. Likely, we will implement this project by the end of 2012 but is also possible before the year end. So far the result is promising. The trustees also decided to phase this need out by end of 2012 – we assume at year end the budget is achieved.
