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

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

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.

Small-Scale Commercial Caged Poultry Keeping for supporting Poor Rural Child Education and Nutrition needs.

Blog-Pic

For all the past years, Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO) has been soliciting educational support for poor rural community children and so far over 2500 children have been reached at. Based on the survey carried out by the Organization, it has been discovered that there is a need to empower students/pupils through simple innovative agricultural income generating activities that can enable them raise funds to cater for the financial challenges they face which include feeding, clothing, medical, sanitary for girls, scholastic material, among others.

In brief; our business idea is to empower students/pupils with entrepreneur skills in poultry farming to enable them raise funds for supporting the financial challenges they face in obtaining quality education. Our business products are universally acceptable organic products of the Kuroiler chicken spices. At least 20 hens and 2 cocks per student plus 20 hens and 2 cocks per teacher will be the business start-up kit. Poultry cage rearing provides the student and teacher with a manageable system for learning the management of the bird and its eggs production with a less labour high yield farming as a business principle.

At least three-quarters of the produced fertilized eggs will be sold in order to help meet the student’s financial obligations and part of the income saved for sustainability and expansion purpose. The remaining fertilized eggs will be hatched and the chicks brood to give to others students to expand the stock.

Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas USA is supporting the first two cages under this arrangement for the purpose of training the first batch of selected teachers, pupils and key community local farmers in Kikandwa villages. Updates on all the developments in regard to this project will from time to time be published on this blog.

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
