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.

Bluebonnet House to House delivery to the Elderly in Nakifuma villages

Publication1

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.
