Posts about Organisational activities
Many of the students at Notre Dame High School come from very poor families. Their parents/guardians are not able to afford to pay school fees, and lack many of the other basics as they do not have a regular source of income.
The school would like to assist these families in setting up small income generating activities of their own. Christopher has been involved with a similar project in the past while working with another organisation in a different area, and it was very successful, providing huge benefits to the families involved.
Nabitende is trying to source tools and equipment within Uganda but is also applying to international NGOs.
Therefore we are looking for other neighbours' stories on customs and clearance practices in Uganda or elsewhere:
1. Do you have experience in clearing donated goods from customs?
2. Is it possible for a CBO to obtain an exemption of custom duties? If so, what is the process of obtaining one like?
3. What costs are involved with custom clearing of donated tools (official and unofficial tariffs!)?
St. Charles Special Needs School is looking for a bus to help get the students to/from school, transport sick children to the hospital, and to take students on educational field trips. Accessible transportation is essential not only for the rehabilitation of the children, but also to promote greater inclusion on the local community and improve disability awareness. If a bus can be secured, this may also increase enrollment at the school. A bus that seats between 22-32, accessible to people with disabilities would be ideal.
A medical training program for orphans was started 2-years ago. Bramuel presented this idea to the hospital board members and they sat together to try and determine an appropriate budget to start the program. They found that they would not be able to realistically manage it if they took too many students, so they decided to start with 3 with the requirement that the student must be orphaned-without both parents.
EFORDE wish to facilitate public awareness campaigns to sensitize and inspire local people with increased knowledge, skills, positive attitude and enthusiam to engage in sustainable fruit growing and agriculture.

Hope Alive Uganda has an existing child sponsorship program which is described on their website and located here:
For this task, we are requesting that volunteers review our sponsorship program and help us identify any areas that could be improved. We would like suggestions for how to make our sponsorship program stronger and more attractive to prospective sponsors of the children identified.
In order for Hope Alive Uganda to gain support in the local community and around the world, people need to know that we exist and have access to information about the good work that we do.
For this task, Eddy is seeking the expertise of a marketing professional to help him write a marketing plan that can be carried out and revised each year. The goals of this plan are to:
1. Increase awareness of the needs of orphans in the local community and the importance of education.
2. Provide people with information about Hope Alive Uganda, and
FROM THE HOPE ALIVE UGANDA ACTION PLAN:
"The primary beneficiaries of the programme will be orphans and needy children in Kamuli district of both sexes from 8 - 23 year of age. We also target the teenagers especially girls who end up getting pregnancies at early ages and school drop out.
The target group will also include those children whose parents are alive but don’t have interest or potential to provide them with the necessary scholastic materials.
