ONE NET PER CHILD
EFORDE have already given fruit and other tree seeds to several people in Nabitende and would like to provide more. To do this, they need to get access to free or reduced-cost seeds or obtain funding to buy these locally.
For this task we would like to hear from people who can suggest where EFORDE can obtain free seeds in Uganda or internationally, and ideas on organisations who can be approached for funding.
Mosquito nets for Nabitende: share your experience of net distribution in Uganda, or help us raise money
Malaria is a problem in Nabitende so EFORDE wishes to provide mosquito nets to community members.
They would like to start by obtaining 100 nets to be distributed to children, mothers and the elderly.
Many organisations provide free or reduced-cost nets in Uganda but, because of the high level of need across the country and lack of information on application procedures, it is not easy for a community to be selected to receive these nets.
My name is Norasco from Tanzania. I am the Executive Director of the VH-LAHA organization and I wish you all a warm welcome to the Kehama Village!
We are so happy that you've chosen to take the time to learn more about our organization and help us as an online volunteer! We hope that you will take the time to introduce yourself and tell us a little more about your experience so that we know how we can best utilize your skills and expertise. We look forward to getting to know you and are certain that together we will accomplish great things for the good of the people of Tanzania.
The northwest of Cambodia, therefore, not only remains one the most under developed and wholly agrarian based areas in Cambodia (45% of the population were living under the poverty line in 2004, 6% higher than the national average of 39% ), but it also has the special context of a large landless population, and bears many scars of the recent tumultuous history of the country. Many local men were caught up in the conflict, and the fighting has therefore also left many local widows and female-headed families, who face their own particular struggles to survive.
For this task we are looking for volunteers to help us identify organizations that donate/supply books or possibly local publishing houses that we might contact to help provide enough books to adequately stock a school library as well as establish an appropriate ratio of text and reading books to students at the school. Books should be written in English.
We are happy to report that Darian Book Aid has already agreed to ship some of the needed textbooks to the school.
We need you to help us brainstorm creative fundraising ideas!
Have you been involved with creative fundraising efforts at a local school or community organization? We are looking for creative ideas for fundraisers. Research can be done on the Internet for this task, or you can simply share from experience.
We would like to create a "bank" of ideas, so that Keframa College can learn from the experience of others and try utilizing some of these different strategies to help fund their development work in Uganda.
The school board and management of Keframa Colllege intend to continue working in partnership with the Lango Youth Action for Development organization. The goal of this partnership will be to focus on development issues at a grassroots level one of which is promotion of income-generation activities to support the school.
For this task, we are looking for volunteers to conduct internet research to try and identify organizations that provide funding for school building projects in Uganda.
Please include the organization name, contact information, website addresses and any information about identified organization's particular requirements for submitting funding proposals.
For this task:
- We are looking for volunteers to help us identify other post-secondary education projects in Uganda that we might be able to learn from.
- We are also interested in identifying organizations that promote international partnerships between educational institutions.
Please include the organization name and appropriate contact information including address, phone and/or email address.
