BLUEBONNET HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO DROUGHT-AFFECTED KIBIRIBIRI ELDERY, WIDOWS AND CHILDREN

img_20170111_130810Yesterday we distributed humanitarian basic needs to the elderly and widows of Kibiribiri villages here in Uganda.
We usually reach OUT to the most needy with humanitarian basic needs in life. Here in Uganda we are hit by serious drought with no hope of serious crop harvest in the near future. Families especially in rural communities survive on only a simple meal everyday and others survive on tree leaves.
Thank you BLUEBONNET for supporting our Humanitarian food assistance to the elderly, children and widows.
We still need food assistance to reach out to the most affected communities. Thank you

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.

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

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
