The slogan SUPPORT US TO SEND BEES TO WORK AS WE KEEP LOCAL FARMERS’ CHILDREN IN CLASS THAN MAKING THEM (CHILDREN) WORK AS THEY MISS THEIR CLASSES was used for the Global Giving Fundraising Drive aimed at raising funds to donate 250 beehives and basic beekeeping materials to 50 selected local farmers with children in Primary schools in and around Kikandwa villages in order to help establish Commercial Micro Beekeeping Enterprises (CMBE) so to be able to meet the educational needs of their children as well as training them in practical beekeeping for self sustenance (http://wp.me/pHagH-cw)

A total of US$ 235 and and 50,000/= (from Communication Without Borders Ltd who could not submit their donation online due to lack of credit cards, etc) was raised from the 2012 Summer Global Giving online Fundraising Drive. Many of you contributed in various ways which included passing on the information to your respective networks, liking and commenting our project, submitting cash donations, among others. The list of all of you who contributed in various capacities other than cash donations is very big and we have found it harder to make mention of each one of you falling under this category and it is on this very note that we say THANK YOU ALL FOR SUCH HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE AND WE SHALL ALWAYS CALL ON YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT. Further we thank the following individuals and organizations for their cash donations: Communication Without Borders Ltd, Royce Zeisler, Madam Jennifer Rowswell, Madam Kathryn Rowswell, Madam Rebecca Pouliot and Madam Fran Thorburn. The funds were deposited into KIRUCODO account in Uganda and have been utilized on the construction of ten (10) beehives instead of five (5) as earlier on communicated to you. This has been made possible by additional financial support from KIRUCODO executive committee. The hives are going to be distributed this week to two families with children attending primary education in rural areas. Other hives are going to be installed in KIRUCODO Beekeeping demonstration farm (apiary) to help in training more local farmers in practical beekeeping as well as supporting needy school-going children. Lastly, we call on your support to the ongoing Global Giving online Fundraising drive which kicked off from 26th November 25, 2012 until 31st December 2012.  The funds from this Fundraising Drive will help to support the construction of nine (9) Rain Water Harvesting Tanks at five (5) rural primary schools Kikandwa villages where access to safe clean water is still a challenge.
