For every 100 girls that join Primary 1 in Kaliro District, only 25 are able to complete the first 7 years of education. Only 15 complete the next 4 years of secondary education and less than 5 join institutions or high school. Only one of these girls will reach University! Records from many primary schools show that the enrolment of girls in school in the lower classes is higher than that of boys almost a ratio of 1 boy to every 2 girls. While the records from higher education institutions show that the number of boys is far higher than that of girls almost 1 girl to every 10 boys!

Any volunteer who may know a hospital/organization that donates medical equipment to developing countries
Arrow Web Hospital is looking for volunteers who may help them to source an organization/hospitals that can donate the used medical equipment to hospitals in developing counties.

Agriculture is one of the economic mainstays of the district. Most agricultural activities are rain fed and major crops grown include maize, Coffee, Wheat,ground nuts and vegetables. Urban backyard gardening and peri-urban farming crops such as groundnuts, maize, sweet potatoes and traditional vegetables are also practiced.. The increment of electricity tariffs by the only electricity supply company in the country and the introduction of prepaid bills, has led to the increase in the shift from the use of hydro electricity upon which most of the grid depend, to wood fuel.
Youth from Daff Society has finally been trained in business planing and proposal writing and 10 of our member acquired a piece of land 5 hactares each and a house built already by the Ministry of Sport Youth and Child Development in Mpongwe.
We recently bought 0.375 Acres of land for the future development of our school.Our neighbors have leased land to us to use and pay them fro the harvest.
The land leased to us is about 4 Acres. We therefore have 4.375 Acres of land for Crop farming. We chose crops because the do not need very close supervision.
The area receives low rainfall but people have dug well due to shallow water table. Therefore we also feel that we dig our own well.The one nearest to us is about 1km away. The area is also an open ground which need to be fenced to protect the crops once they are planted.
