$2 – pays for making 2 clay stoves! $10 – pays for making 10 clay stoves!

Stoves made of clay are better for cooking than a traditional 3 stone fire. They use less wood, saving money if firewood is bought, or time if firewood is collected. They produce less smoke, and protecting the health of children, and children in the kitchen. The stoves burn hotter, and will cook food quicker.

Because the stoves use less wood, they help to preserve the trees and the environment. Often children are injured by fire. A stove reduces such accidents. Also stove improves hygiene in the kitchen making easier to clean the pots.

The stoves can be constructed using locally available materials, for a cost of maybe $1 (US). A selling price of $2 or more allows for creation of a profitable business, and still gives buyers a quick return on investment. A single stove can be constructed in less than one hour, once practice and experience is gained.

September 17, 2011; our donors have contributed $1,717 towards a budget goal of $65,000. This is really good. We are able to help many women now than before. Since April we have been setting small goal of fundraising. When the amount is reach we increase the goal until the total budget is collected.

The 5 women selected in June to be trained to make clay stoves had been delayed due to change of the location, and heavy rain. These women will be trained in Uganda, and in December we will be training in Onura when it stops raining. Training starts this September.

In three months to come new field updates will be posted, and also we will report on how your contribution is making impact on the lives of women in Onura.

Our donors have contributed $1427 towards a budget goal of $65,000. This is a good moment for Hope Ofiriha. Since April a new policy was passed of posting project with small goal $1500 live on GlobalGiving. Once the amount is raise we then increase the amount with similar goal until the total budget is entirely achieved. This strategy is good for Hope Ofiriha so far as a small NGO

We now have the funds to train more 5 women in production skills, soil selection, and marketing of the wood Clay stoves to consumer, and business market.

Hope Ofiriha needs to identify these women and the selection Group is working on this matter. We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help local women to get out from the exposure of acute respiratory infections and lung disease.

Thanks to our donors! Thanks to GlobalGiving for sharing our project with kind people! Without YOU - Hope Ofiriha would have not delivered its mission.

In the next 3 months new updates will be posted, and also we will report on how your contributions are impacting on the lives of women in Onura sub Village Magwi County South Sudan. Hope Ofiriha appreciates partnering with you, and we will continue to team up with you until the goal of this project is achieved.
