chickens-001From 113 to 553 Kuroiler Birds I can earn $1000 per month

Robert Kibaya is my name, a Ugandan aged 37 years. I am a Biological Technologist by profession; Executive Director and Founder at Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO) , Co-Director at Youths in Technology and Development-Uganda (YITEDEV) and NetSquared Tech Meetup Local Organizer in Uganda

I intend to raise a parent stock of 100 Kuroiler hens and 13 Kuroiler cocks for producing fertilized eggs for: selling, eating for nutrition purposes and hatching into new chicks. 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.

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


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.

Value addition on Moringa brings in more income

Blog-Picture.pubThough 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.
