Recurring Donation Campaign & Field updates

Children of Alai
Children of Alai

Ms Alai - is happy now after several of hardship!

The conditions of Ms Alai, her children, mother was desperate after divorcing. According to Sharia –law a divorced wife – is a bad woman, cannot remarry and supported.  Meaning that she is not entitled to get child benefits either from the state or from her ex –husband. She was condemned and left to suffer for several months. Alai nearly wanted to give up her life. Hope Ofiriha responded timely and rescued them.

With your help they have food, a house, and school for children. Alai went to school to learn skills in operating small scale business. With your help they have better lives now. Ms Alai is very optimistic now than she 24 months ago. She is a nice young woman!

Hope Ofiriha will continue to provide them with food, a house, and pay an education for children.  But our main objective is to grant Ms $500 to start a small scale business. We will provide her with guidance, monitoring, practical business skills so she can run a business to support her family after the funding period is over.  

With South Sudan becoming independence country by July 9 2011 – people are returning from northern, to South Sudan. Ms Alai is planning to return to Juba in future.

One of our donors has signed up for Recurring monthly donation for $35. With this $ 35 we are paying a monthly house rent for the family of Alai. Their food needs are $60. We are looking for two donors each to sign for recurring donation of $30.  When two donors sign up for $60 will guarantee their foods on the table each month. Please sign up!

Thanks our donors! Thanks GlobalGiving! Without your help Hope Ofiriha could have not been in the position to support to them.

In the next three months we will bring you new project updates, and to tell how your impact is making changes in the lives of Alai, her children and mother. We will continue to partner with you until the aim of this project is achieved.

Our Omdruman volunteer Coordinator sent this report one week ago to me.

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!

With a monthly gift of only $10 -  Hope Ofiriha can save lives of 10 small children suffering from malaria.
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.
