Until recently, there were no educational facilities for poor mountain children living in central Omilling community. HopeOfiriha established a fully functioning temporary school on local structures in ONURA sub village for 315 children age 7-12. HopeOfiriha applied for funding from GlobalGiving to build a school on permanent structures. But the fundraising effort has been too slow due to current global recession.

We are appealing to anybody, a company, and family, to help us in fundraising efforts. If you know anybody who want to help the poor you can direct to HopeOfiriha or give their contact address. The poor children need an education but they have no way unless they are help.

The community has donated 35000 soil block, and 200 acres of land where the school will be built. The school will be built in cooperation with Magwi county local government, Lofiriha Traditional Authority, and County Education officer and the local Chiefs. Once the facility is build it will provide a much a need opportunity for local pupils from the surrounding villages who are going without school presently. We urgently need money! What can we do?

Quote from head master of ONURA Primary School: If there is anything I can do to help these poor children, I will build them a school and through education they will be able to help themselves, their communities and families.

We look forward that our supporters will work with us in this worthwhile project until it aims are fully realized. Thanks, Linda Acen
