The village of Nabitende will attempt to break a Guinness World Record™ by making the largest stamp mosaic on the first of December, World Aids Day 2009.
Orphans and other vulnerable children will make it to raise awareness among themselves about Aids, to empower them, raise awareness of their situation and to raise funds for this village. The biggest reason is, though, to give them a fun day and maybe some art classes beforehand.
The main objectives of this project is the fruit farm and agroforestry project. When their is harvest, we can consider fruit drying and honey making, but until then other income generation ideas are needed, as well as teaching about business, markets and economy.
In this task we are looking for ideas of small businesses that the co-operative can handle and succeed in.
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.
