Since I sent an appeal for support the afternoon of June 7, 2013, in less than 24 hours, we managed, through friends like you, to raise R1,070 and we received pledges of a total of R1,150 for our Community Based Organization (CBO), the Thondwe Youth Development Organisation (THOYODO).
THOYODO is a youth led organization which was established in January 2011 to empower the youth and improve the living standard of many young people around Thondwe area by providing them with vocational artisan skills and HIV/AIDS prevention awareness among other activities.
In March 2011, THOYODO launched a sports program for different age groups to identify talents among the youth and also to try to keep the youth away from immoral behaviors that can lead them to contract STIs, HIV/AIDS and early pregnancies.
Next weekend, we are having the finals of one of our Soccer Challenges where several teams will compete prize money, other prizes and for the attached floating trophy. We will therefore appreciate if you can boost our prize money or whatever you can support us with for our Soccer Challenge or for the organization in general. The youth of our village and surrounding areas will be grateful for your support because these things make a huge difference in their lives. Pictures of the event will be shared.
We will send banking details directly to those who would like support.
You can me with your pledge or if you want more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
