“I have a vision of building a sports complex in the community...Big Dreams!” (Mulenga, via email 17 May 09)
The youth of Garden have run out of space where they can play! Similar to large urban cities all over the world, land in Garden is mainly taken up by homes, industry, shops and schools etc. and local councils continue to forget about children’s play areas. There is virtually no more land inGarden that can provide space for the kids to play sports. Other organisations who run
The youths need one or more bicycles to get water for the vegetable project and to go to town to sell their arts and crafts and soon their veggetables. They do not have a bike yet what means that for each way they have to pay a bus or a taxi.
For this task we are looking for fundraising ideas or organisations that would be able to sponsor a bike. A used bike costs around 40 USD and a new one around 75 USD.
Update: We are very grateful for the donation by one neighbor to buy a bike. The youths should soon get it.

Vadgam is trying enhance the current programs they are offering to the village children. However to meet its objectives it needs some basic teaching materials(and sport gears). We are not asking for money from our current members or the guests but instead we would like to invite suggestions on how we can fundraise for money or attract philanthropists to make small donations (monetary or materials which can be second-hand). This is an open task with no time restrictions.
The implementation of fruit and vegetable growing for sustainable livelihoods project has started after getting funding. The initial stage of the project is to develop a coordinated and practical plan that will enable us progressively monitor project activities and measure results against these.
Attached herein is the implementation plan in effect for the next one year. This stage will enable us to be updated on the progress of the project.
Reports on the progress of the project will also be posted here for your kind consideration.

The youths of Wakitaka recently formed a CBO, the Wakitaka Youths Development Group. They now have drawn a very nice logo. But not having a computer, the logo has been drawn with pencils and scanned by Emmanuel (see the attachment). To be able to use the logo in the future for any communication, a website or brochure, the logo needs to be transformed into a digital format. This can be done in Photoshop for example. If you know how to do this, the youths would be grateful for your help.
Here some information about the Logo:

The village of Nabitende depend mostly on trees for their livelihood, feeding and energy. The trees are used for practically everything in their day to day lives; Charcoal, firewood, shelters, food etc.
Because of this high dependency on trees, a lot of trees are cut and none planted in replacement. This is causing severe depletion of the trees and if something is not done, the people of Nabitende face deforestation and subsequent loss of their major source of income.
All cooking is done on open wood and charcoal fires. Therefore solar cookers and other green technologies are needed.
