Keeping Kuroiler Chicken to raise money for building homes for members of Uganda Housing Cooperative Union

blogThis week, we started to develop a Sustainable profitable Kuroiler Chicken keeping business plan for five Housing Cooperative Societies under UHOCHU namely: Kabizi-Wankwale, Kidokolo-Twezimbe, Nnongo, Nkokonjeru-Caritas and Polysack housing cooperatives. Members of the five societies were trained early this month in Kuroiler keeping and Management and today they consider Kuroiler keeping as a business to engage into as a group to save and build individual homes on their recently purchased land. Society members are grouped into a group of 5 families each and given a startup kit of 60 kuroiler chicks, materials and startup feeds each.

Bluebonnet Kuroiler Keeping Project Model under replication by a number of Organizations and Individuals

1Good Job. Five months ago, Kisowera Community Needs Uganda members were trained in Kuroiler Keeping and Management. They have 30 hens and 3 cocks and today they have been able to bring 90 eggs for hatching into chicks. They plan to bring 90 eggs every week for hatching. From 30 hens, they are able to get at least 15 eggs every day which makes it 105 eggs every 7 days. From 90 eggs, they are able to get atleast 70 chicks every week. In a month they are able to get atleast 280 chicks which makes it atleast 3360 chicks every year. Remember, we are considering the least number of eggs but 30 hens can still lay 26 or 20 eggs a day.

Every month after maturity of the birds i.e. 5 months, two selected youths will be trained in commercial Kuroiler keeping and management and there after each be donated with 35 one-month old Kuroiler chicks as a startup kit on agreed terms and conditions. Every youth who receives a donation of the chicks will be required to donate back an equivalent number of one-month…

Transforming children’s mind from bee hating to bee loving for Development

img_3461

We managed to capture the queen bee and removed her wings so to prevent her from flying away. We successfully transferred the colony into a bee hive so the family can continue to harvest honey plus other bee product.

This is what you need to know to prevent bees from stinging you: First, you need to calm them down by smoking. If you are going to be transferring the bees into an hive, then you need to capture the queen and remove her wings so she can not fly. If you don’t remove her wings, you can enclose her in a cage with holes where she can be fed but not able to get out immediately (the worker bee will be able to open a passage for her to get out after some days). Then the rest of the bees will just come to protect the queen. Also, when a bee moves on you, just leave it and don’t kill it. If you kill it then other bees will smell a certain scent and they will begin to sting you. Also, you don’t have to run but just walk gently and don’t wear perfume. Always smoke yourself and try to smoke around.

Do you have a problem with bees? Just drop us a line and we shall be right there. Thank you

None of the Students of Amudat Secondary School in Karamoja of over 400 students has an email address

DSC06379Today we have been able to train Amudat Secondary School Students how to signup and operate personal email accounts. A School of over 400 students, none of them has an email address. Though there some computers, students have no access as all computers broke down and there is no technician in the area to help them. This school is found in Karamoja which is over 400 miles from Kampala Capital city (Capital of Uganda). This is mostly a pastoral community and the only way this community can be helped is to be connected to the world wide web. Good enough, there is both G3 and G4 Internet network.
