Mass distribution of Clean Cook Rocket Stoves to over 100 women

2Last Sunday the 15th of April we distributed Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves (2BCCROST) to over 100 women of Bunakijja in Mukono District and Namaliri in Buikwe District. The stoves will help to reduce on the amount of firewood used per day in cooking thus reducing cutting down of trees in communities.

On average, a single family in rural Uganda uses between 20-30 firewood of each 2M long. With the introduction of 2BCCROST, a single family is expected to use a maximum of 5 firewood per day of each 2M long.

Since this kind of stove produces much less smoke, women are going to be saved from illnesses associated with inhering wood burning unhealthy smoke.

Introduction:

Wood fuel is a broad term covering both the direct use of wood in cooking and heating, the use of charcoal (both for households and for industrial uses) and also recovered wastes in wood-using industries. While all are important in particular situations in developing countries, the use of wood and charcoal in heating and cooking predominate and are the main energy sources for more than two billion people (Nogueira, et al. 1998; Mather 1990; WEC 1999).

Bluebonnet Scholastic Material Distribution to Sir. Apollo Kaggwa (Buwaali) Primary School

img_5322

Last Friday the 03rd of March, 2017, we reached out to over 200 pupils of Sir. Apollo Kaggwa Primary School Kawaali with scholastic materials. The materials were donated by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA. 

During our visit to the school, we discovered that the school had fewer streams to accommodate all the seven classes of pupils. Because of this, some classes were sharing a classroom as you can see below. Again, we discovered that Primary One (P.1) class of children of less than 5years was IN A VERY SORRY STATE as you can watch this VIDEO and we call on your support to help this school in terms of infrastructure development.

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

SEPTEMBER UPDATES FROM KIRUCODO’S BLUEBONNET HILLS CHRISTIAN CHURCH-SPONSORED SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

P.5 pupils for Kikandwa Church of Uganda Primary school during training

Since 2011, Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas USA has been supporting the skills development training program of community people in and around Kikandwa villages.

In February 2012, skills development training services were also extended to primary pupils in Kikandwa Church of Uganda Primary School and currently two classes are participating as per the following list indicate.

KIRUCODO will soon setup three additional community skills development training centers within three identified community rural primary schools to serve pupils, teachers and community people especially school dropouts, women and unemployed youths.

The current training sponsorship from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church will expire at the end of this month (September) and it is on this note that we call on your support to help cover the training expenses for the months of October and November. For each month, US$ 160 is needed to cover the trainer’s allowances and training materials of 25 participants.

If interested in supporting our skills development training programs, please feel free to contact us at kruralcommunitiesdevorg@yahoo.com

Lastly, below is a slideshow during the training of one of the primary classes.
