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.

DSCN0103This month on 18 June, 2015, we managed to deliver 50 one month old Kuroiler chicks to Wesige Mukama Primary School Nakasongola District here in Uganda. The school is more than 100 miles away from our offices and it  offers education services to the most needy children from very poor families. The school has been supported with scholastic materials from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA.
The chicks WE DELIVERED to this school will be multiplied by hatching when they begin laying eggs and then the new chicks will be distributed to teachers, parents and children just like we do elsewhere like in Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary school and St. John Kaama Education Centre.
This project is currently sponsored by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA and it is getting implemented by Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO). This project is aiming at supporting the education of poor rural children, eradicate poverty and improve nutrition for poor rural communities in Uganda.

The $5 and 17 Cents Donated by 7 Years old Austin Texas Twins of USA Have put a big Smile on the Faces of the Poorest and desperate 3, 5 and 8 Years old Kibiribiri C/U Primary School Children

This Blog post is sub-titled: “Being Responsible”; No matter how old you are; How much you earn; What you do, No matter ……..

Ella and Graham who donated $5 and 17 Cents

Ella and Graham who donated $5 and 17 Cents

My recent visit to Austin, Texas (27thFeb-08March, 2015) to meet with NetSquared and TechSoup Global as well as to participate in 2015 Non-Profit Technology Conference exposed me to great number of life experiences.

The 7 Years old Responsible Texas Twins; Ella and Graham

The 7 years old  little twins (Ella and Graham) in the picture above were not known to me nor to Pastor Landon who was the only person I knew well in the city. While hanging out for Lunch with Pastor Landon, he disclosed to me that 7 years old twins had donated $5 and 17 cents to support my charitable work in Uganda. I asked him if he knew the children but unfortunately he could not tell as the donation was passed on to him by a friend who knew the family and Pastor Landon might have made a presentation to a group where they were.

This touched my heart and the $5 & 17 Cents meant much in my life because they were given out by children who earn almost nothing. I tasked Pastor Landon to get me the names of the twins and their photo. I had to leave USA for Uganda before actually getting the names and photo but Praise God my friend Pastor Landon worked it out with the friend who knew the family and I received everything on my whatsapp. I came to know that the twins who donated were Ella and Graham and their mother is Madam Martha Pulkingham.

How I identified the neediest children for the $5 and 17 Cents Donation?

Right, I had to think of the best way to utilize this special Grant and my approach was to call the Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School Head Teacher to help identify for me two, really very poor children in her school. Good enough she already had the most desperate on her list and all the three children are coming from the same family and they live nearer to the school.

Yesterday 18 March, 2015 I was able to physically meet with Emmanuel Kajubi aged 3 years old and in Baby Class; Joyce Mayer Nakalanzi aged 5 years old and in top class; Kimera Miracle aged 8 years old and in Primary one and finally their mentally disturbed mother Nandera Florence.

How the children ended up in school and more about the mother (Nandera Florence)?!

When you reach Kibiribiri School, you can easily identify them among other children. They don’t put of school uniform, no shoes as they have no one to provide for them leave alone their mentally sick mother. Kibiribiri Head Teacher was responsible enough to tress them out of the village and asked their mother if she wanted her children to be in school. The mother (Nandera Florence) agreed but she could not even afford to buy them scholastic materials. The mother earns her living from digging for people in the village (check video below) and some of them end up not paying her utilizing the advantage of her being mentally sick. Though she is mentally disturbed, she has love for her children and she is responsible enough to look after them in terms of feeding, taking them to school every morning, etc. She was once married in Kampala (Uganda capital city) but when she got mentally sick then her husband chased her away with the children and she was also pregnant. She had to walk from Kampala to her father’s village which is nearer kibiribiri village and which is about 35 miles from Kampala city. Since her father had already died, it was hard for her to live there and she was eventually chased away. She tried to look for where to live but in vain. Thank you God, she found unoccupied hut in Kibiribiri village and she just entered there and till today she is staying there as per the photos below.

How the $5 and 17 Cents Special donation utilized?

The funds were used to buy: Two Dozens of books, a Dozen of Pencils, Three Tooth Brushes and tooth paste, Two Bars of Soap and Kg of Sugar as you can see in the photos.

Conclusion

If we all get responsible then this world will be at peace and no one will be living in poverty. This world has got enough resources for everyone but majority are simply not responsible. The wars we have in this world is do to the fact that majority in key positions are not responsible of their actions. The poverty which is in the world especially in Africa is due to the fact that majority are not responsible. Much of that which affects human race is in most cases of not being responsible at certain level.

Bluebonnet-Sponsored KIRUCODO Caged Poultry Keeping Project to Sponsor poor children in rural schools to attend NetSquared Uganda Computer Training Meetups (two hens per child).

Photo-2hens-BlogDo you know that $20 can be used to hatch and feed two Kroiler hens to support a poor child in a rural school in Uganda to attend NetSquared Uganda Computer Training meetup for the whole year and even so many other years?!

Right, this is how it is planned to work out:

Two hens will lay not less than 6 eggs a week. Every week, 6 eggs can be taken to the hatchery at a cost of $0.72 (for all the 6). Lets say 4 eggs hatch out into chicks then the poor child will be able to sell each chick at not less than $1 and in this case he or she will be able to raise $4 each week. Actually, the child needs $4 to attend the computer training meetups for a period of 3 months (an accademic term) and he or she needs $12 for the entire year. This means that the child will be able to pay his or her computer training tuition in a week and the rest of the weeks will accumulate profits for scaling up from 2 hens to may be 20 hens in a period of 3 months.
Currently, two schools have already submitted in their resquests for 50 birds as per these letters indicate (Letter from St. John Educational Center and St. John Kaama Education Center).
