Recurring Donation Campaign & Field updates

Our Onura water source
Our Onura water source

With your contributions we raised $1,630 but we still more funds!

Lack of clean drinking water is a major problem in Onura Village. Water is very scarce and children and women must walk miles upon miles every day to nearby streams to fetch water.

Although there are many small rivers in the village, most are infested with water related diseases such as bilharzias, sleeping sickness, river blindness, and malaria. Besides these, diseases such typhoid fever, dysentery and pneumonia continue to kill children.

One or two hand pump boreholes can provide good drinking water for an entire village but the poor cannot afford boreholes and they are left with no choice.

Thanks to our donors this project has raised $1,630 not so far away to reach of the goal of one hand held water pump. Children and women in Onura are waiting for this patiently!

We thank you for your donations and in every three months we will bring you project updates from the field so you know how this project is progressing a long.

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 Christmas gift. This will enable Hope Ofiriha plans several months ahead and do a good work for children and women.

 We need a total of 10 people to sign up for a monthly recurring donation 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.
