The goal of the Small-scale Farming Project Plan task is to make a practical and well-founded plan for a school garden that provides the most essential food for the school children. The first phase in o achieving this is to do the following research:
• Analyse which crops are suitable (regarding to nutritional values, soil, water, climate, resistance against illnesses, costs, yields etc.)
• Research the Nabuur forum, (e.g., Khaparapada), for discussions about organic farming, no digging, no tilling, no outside inputs, permanent beds, drip irrigation etc.
With the growth of the student population, the school needs to have the resources to accomodate all students in the community.
Specifically, the school needs:
- Music and Dance Rooms
- Non-Teaching Staff Quarters
- School Kitchen
- School Sick-bay
We need help to formulate a game plan for this big task. Any ideas?
Search and make a list of organizations willing to donate a power generator and/or solar pannels for the use of the community centre.
Arun Valley Concern Center would like to support tourism efforts throughout the Sankhuwashbha district of Nepal and draw more tourists into the region. In order to help us establish a clear direction forward, we need a good project definition.
What do we want to offer in terms of support to existing tourism agencies?
What support can we offer to the local community to allow them to benefit from the tourists that come through the area?
For our project to move forward, we need to first define what resources and barriers exist in order to appropriately plan a way forward.
Tejanath has been working on an initial SWOT analysis for the project and will post it here as a place to start. Please review the proposed project and background information in our village and help us list items to complete the SWOT analysis.
Earlier this year, the digital camera that was used to visually document exciting news and progress being made at Arrow-Web Hospital was stolen when Bramuel was ambushed by a group of robbers on his way home from a conference. Since that time, he has not been able to replace it.
Resources you can use about storytelling, making pictures etc.
Zambia educationa is failing every time now lacking capacity and quality education dual to HIV and AIDS that cause a lot of child heading homes/ poverty, lack of skills training for many children and youths, using platform sports to empowering girls and women to education and awareness in health and child labour.
At the moment, the school gets most of its income from school fees, local fundraising and some donations from abroad. Over the longer term they would like to become less dependent on outside support, maybe one day becoming fully self-sufficient.
Within the next year, Notre Dame High School hopes to expand it's vocational training programme to offer students invaluable job skills training. Through this programme they may also be able to generate some income for the school. They have also started small-scale pig and rabbit keeping projects.
At the present time, there are 7 students at Notre Dame High School sick from Malaria. Last week, there were 10 students sick with Malaria. It is the rainy season in Masaka and they fully expect that Malaria cases will rise.
In order to combat Malaria, they would like to utilize mosquito nets in the new dormitories, but not all students or teachers can afford to purchase them. In Uganda, a treated mosquito net can cost Ug shs 15000, and an untreated one costs around Ug shs 10000.
Many people who travel to Nepal to volunteer also go trekking. For this task, we would like to research and again develop a database of volunteer organizations who place volunteers in Nepal many times to help in the schools. This research will be used to reach out and establish relationships with organizations who may be interested in learning more about the Sankhuwasabha district and all it has to offer those who come to visit.
