Reaching out to poor rural community schools with scholastic materials is one of the key activities of Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO).

On 25th October 2017, we reached out to over 300 children of Sittankya Primary School with scholarship materials like: Pens, Pencils, Exercise Books and Mathematical Geometry Sets. This donation was sponsored by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas under the leadership of Pastor Landon.

Lastly, we still need more support and feel free to contact us with a donation of any kind and we shall be able to reach out to as many needy schools as possible.

From 40 Kuroiler Hens and 4 cocks, we are now able to supply 1500 Kuroiler chicks to one of our clients in Mukono, Uganda

 A few weeks back, a client submitted an order to our Organization for supplying him 1500 one-day old Kuroiler chicks and last week we were able to deliver 500 chicks as you can see in the photo slideshow below and in the video above while brooding. The chicks were hatched from fertilized eggs from our 40 hens and 4 cocks plus 40 hens and 4 cocks from our two staffs. As you can remember, we started with 40 Kuroiler Hens and 4 cocks as per this Link provides for. At the comment, we have hatched over 4000 fertilized eggs into over 4000 Kuroiler chicks. Every week we take fertilized eggs to the hatchery and every week we deliver new one-day old chicks to our clients and to our local Brooding Centre in Kikandwa village. As an Organization (Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization – KIRUCODO), we no longer have an office space as almost all the office space was turned into a Brooding space. Some of our clients press orders for one day old, one week old, two weeks old and one month old Kuroiler chicks. Lastly, if you are out there and need to buy good quality Kuroiler chicks, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. Please enjoy the photos below:

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.
