52 One-Month old Kuloirer chicks were donated to two teachers of Kibiribiri C/U Primary School

IMG_5332The Bluebonnet-Supported Kuloirer Caged Poultry Keeping Project has now grown to the extend that every week we take over 120 fertilized eggs and every week we deliver more than 80 one-day old chicks to our community brooder in Kikandwa Village.

Last month, we started to reach out to rural primary teachers with one-month old kuloirer chicks. The chicks are to help them supplement on their lower monthly salaries. Each teacher receives 26 chicks and when they begin to lay eggs, the organization will help them to hatch the eggs into chicks for selling and keeping as they expand their poultry business.

Remember, this project began with two cages with 22 chicks each and to date we have hatched over 1000 chicks in 9 months.

Below is how the delivery was done last month

This year Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO) with assistance from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas, USA initiated  Small-Scale Commercial Caged Poultry Keeping for supporting Poor Rural Child Education and Nutrition needs

For the passed week, activities have been going on as reflected in this Blog Post and yesterday we were able to deliver a cage with a total of 22 One-Month old Kuroiler chicks to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary school. The cage is attached to selected needy pupils in the school and they are supposed to learn how to keep the chicken in the cage and thereafter each of the pupils will be given his or her own cage with a total of 30 chicks. With this project, a pupil will be able to save not less than $2 a day; totaling to $60 a month which is just enough to cater for his or her education needs as well as feeding.

Based on the above, a donor can extend a life time donation to a needy child worthy $1,000 and this will be enough to have the cage fabricated as well as catering for the chicks till they begin to lay eggs. Once they begin to lay eggs, the kid will not need any additional financial support as he or she can maintain the day today expenses though the sale of poultry products such as eggs, incubated chicks, and off-layers.

Below are some of the photos we captured on delivering the Cage to Kibiribiri C/U Primary school.

Pupils offloading the desks

On 08th October we delivered a donation of five desks to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School. The donation was passed on to KIRUCODO from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas through their leader Pastor Dr. Landon Shultz. In the photo slideshow below, you will find the current classroom sitting arrangement of the pupils where majority of them squeeze themselves on the benches and use their thighs as support of their books while writing. In some cases, they are so squeezed that even some use the backs of their friends to rest on their books while writing.

On the other hand, you will find the new desks we delivered and there is still a great need of school desks to serve rural schools such as this one. Just in case you can support our Rural Schools Desks Program please let us know and we shall provide you will all the details. We want to reach to as many rural schools as possible. Thank you Bluebonnet and everyone for your continued support to our community programs. God bless you
