Pupils from Kikandwa and Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary Schools, in Kyampisi Sub-County, Mukono District Uganda are the current beneficialies of Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church Sponsored-NetSquared-Uganda Poor Rural Schools Computer Training Meetup. The children testified about the computer lessons currently conducted in their school by a KIRUCODO contracted local partner called Maendeleo Foundation Uganda who utilizes Mobile solar-powered computer technology classes to reach out to poor rural schools which have no access to computer services due to lack of electricity.
Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas has been financially sponsoring this NetSquared-Uganda computer training Meetup since March 2014 as per these links indicate:

Kibiribiri C/U Chairman School Management Committee holds eggs he has collected in a two-weeks period
The second Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored cage was delivered early this year to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School with a total of 22 birds. The cage is kept at the Chairman School Management Committee who actually lives near the school. This is part of the Small-scale commercial caged poultry keeping for supporting poor rural child Education and Nutrition needs project which was initiated by KIRUCODO to help poor rural children sponsor their education needs like scholarstic materials, uniforms, shoes, lunches, etc.
KIRUCODO-Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored Caged Poultry Keeping project which kicked-up this year with two metal cages with 22 birds has started to yield.
The hens started to lay eggs last month as seen in the photos. The fertilized eggs layed are now being sold to community people at 500/= Uganda money each and the rest of the eggs are being stored for incubation to hatch into chicks for blooding and distribution to other beneficialies and for selling at a cost of 3,500/= Uganda money per chick which is about US$ 1.4.
On the other hand, since there have been 12 cocks in the stock we have been keeping, ten cocks have been sold off this week each at 30,000/= Uganda Money (US$ 11.54) and the raised money have been used for buying feeds and stock more ten three-months old Kuroiler hens.
Remember, this project is aiming at supporting education of poor children in rural communities in Uganda and we believe that if a kid is given a cage with 30 birds then he or she can be able to pay for her or his school needs like scholarstic materials, shoes and uniform, lunches and breakfasts, transport, and upkeep money, etc. Actually a one-time US$ 1,000 donation is enough to provide a kid with a cage of 30 chicks, vaccinations and enough feeds up to the laying period.
