Change THEIR STORY
The goal of Orphans of Teso is to help the communities we work in survive, thrive and succeed. Our 2021 CTS Campaign is focused on helping the families within our program SUCCEED by increasing their income at a household level.
This year we are focused on the following initiatives that will empower and provide dignity to the families in our program:
This project will accommodate 9 groups (30 families per group) at the Ongongoja & Bukedea CarePoints. Each group will choose their own crop and will be provided with seeds, pesticides, harvesting and storage supplies. They will receive training to enhance crop yields and will grow crops that are more resistant to the current climate challenges in the community. This project’s goal is to boost household food security in the entire community as well as generate income for those participating.
Total Goal: $12,500 ($1,390/group of 30 families)
Two groups of 30 families will be provided with a total of 44 goats at the Ongongoja CarePoint. Each member will commit to donating the first 3 goats to another family so this project will have a lasting impact. These funds will be used to purchase, transport, and vaccinate goats and train members on goat rearing.
Total Goal: $4,750 ($80/per goat)
Two groups will be supported in apiary enterprise development in Ongongoja. Honey and other bee products are in high demand in Ongonogja and the surrounding communities. This project will include training of group members on modern apiary and business skills and purchasing and distributing of beehives and beekeeping gear. They will also purchase and establish a demonstration site to be used for training. They will also receive help marketing and selling honey and other products.
Total Goal: $4,750 ($2,375/group)
The community surrounding the Ogoloi CarePoint will split into 15 groups of 20 families to create small businesses together. Each group will choose what business will fit their needs/skills. HopeChest leadership will help them create business plans and train them in business and marketing. We will then provide them with start-up funds to start their businesses.
Total Goal: $8,000 ($4,000/group)
OF THE WAY TO OUR GOAL OF $40,000
Our goal is to raise $40,000 to fund these projects which will enhance sustainable economic practices and empower the children and their guardians to attain self-sufficiency.
