The second Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored cage was delivered early this year to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School with a total of 22 birds. The cage is kept at the Chairman School Management Committee who actually lives near the school. This is part of the Small-scale commercial caged poultry keeping for supporting poor rural child Education and Nutrition needs project which was initiated by KIRUCODO to help poor rural children sponsor their education needs like scholarstic materials, uniforms, shoes, lunches, etc.

KIRUCODO-Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored Caged Poultry Keeping; Hens now laying eggs and cocks on sale

Blog-Photo

KIRUCODO-Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored Caged Poultry Keeping project which kicked-up this year with two metal cages with 22 birds has started to yield.

The hens started to lay eggs last month as seen in the photos. The fertilized eggs layed are now being sold to community people at 500/= Uganda money each and the rest of the eggs are being stored for incubation to hatch into chicks for blooding and distribution to other beneficialies and for selling at a cost of 3,500/= Uganda money per chick which is about US$ 1.4.

On the other hand, since there have been 12 cocks in the stock we have been keeping, ten cocks have been sold off this week each at 30,000/= Uganda Money (US$ 11.54) and the raised money have been used for buying feeds and stock more ten three-months old Kuroiler hens.

Remember, this project is aiming at supporting education of poor children in rural communities in Uganda and we believe that if a kid is given a cage with 30 birds then he or she can be able to pay for her or his school needs like scholarstic materials, shoes and uniform, lunches and breakfasts, transport, and upkeep money, etc. Actually a one-time US$ 1,000 donation is enough to provide a kid with a cage of 30 chicks, vaccinations and enough feeds up to the laying period.

A Cage with 22 Chicks was yesterday Delivered to Kibiribiri C/U Primary school (Sponsored by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas)

Kibiribiri-Cage-Delivery

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.
