At the just concluded 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit at Stanford University, Silicon Valley, USA; networking was made smart. All the participants were given Poken Networking Tools simply to speed up their networking activities in a free and open environment.
What is Poken Networking tool?: It is an interactive USB stick which glows when you touch it to someone else’s – just like exchanging a digital business card. This tool collects Digital Content and Contact information from say conference attendees, exhibitors, etc.
On 28th April, 2016 we reached out to New Hope Primary School-Nkokonjeru with scholastic materials to over 700 children. The donation was provided by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin USA and it was distributed by Youths In Technology and Development (YITEDEV) members under the supervision of Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO).
KIRUCODO and YITEDE are working towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 of ensuring inclusive and Quality Education for all and promoting lifelong learning.
You can watch this VIDEO to see what happened during the distribution.

Though Moringa is consumed unprocessed in countries such as India, the Agricultural Research Centre (ARC) of South Africa is making massive profits out of assorted products produced from Moringa.
Research at ARC has proved that Moringa is 7 times the vitamin C of Orange, 10 times the vitamin A of carrot, 17 times the calcium of milk, 15 times the potassium of banana, and 25 times the iron of spinach.
The just concluded Third Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD3), exposed participants on innovative research approaches leading to value addition on indigenous medicinal plants in South Africa. A field trip to ARC revealed how result-oriented research can increase income of both research institutions and household farmers through the processing of agricultural produces into a number of branded products. One of such plants looked at during the trip on 07th April, 2016 was Moringa which is grown locally at the ARC and local farmers.

In December 2015, KIRUCODO volunteers delivered Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church donated Humanitarian basic needs to the elderly people in Nakifuma villages. Most of the elderly are very weak to travel longer distances and because of this we decided to deliver the materials home to home unlike in Kikandwa villages where most of the elderly people walked up to the KIRUCODO offices to pick up their respective donations. Below is a photos slideshow covering the entire exercise. Again, we thank the Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of such great assistance to our communities. God Bless you. Enjoy the slideshow.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.

This December 2015 material donations to the elderly was distributed on 18th December, 2015 and it was again sponsored by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA. We reached to over 70 elderly in Kikandwa Villages; over 30 elderly in Nakifuma village and over 30 in Mbarara.
Thank you so much Bluebonnet Hills for helping the elderly in our communities. God Bless you as you enjoy the photo slide show below
