The Project Room is a space for providing general information and updates on the overall status of our project. If you have information to share that does not fit under the tasks above, this is the place to share it.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your interest in helping The Childcare Project in Mawoito, Uganda. We are so pleased that you have chosen to be a part of our project and very grateful to all of our volunteers.
Please use this space to introduce yourself and get to know the rest of the members of our volunteering team here at Nabuur. Again we welcome you!
The members of Revelation Children’s Ministries International come from every tribe in Eastern and Northern Uganda. They are Christian and Muslim, young and old, educated and illiterate. The one thing they have in common is that they have suffered from extreme poverty due to wars and other related calamities. They have great resilience, strength and determination with hard work and have hope living with dignity and determination.
In the evening hours after crops have been attended to for the day, the local community has decided to introduce matchbox-making and candle-making as another possible means of income generation. Do you have any ideas or experience with regard to this that you can share with the local community? If so, please share it here.
Another income-generation activity being considered by the school is establishing a school garden to support vegetable cultivation. The school grounds have a sufficient amount of land to support this and CAPEC hopes to teach the children successful farming techniques that they can then incorporate at home.
There are multiple projects working on this very thing throughout Nabuur and online. Can you help us find good examples and draw from the experience of others? If anyone has an example project plan, we would be very grateful if you would share it with us.
