DESPITE THE MANY CHALLENGES WE FACE, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH MANY THINGS INCLUDING STOCKING OUR MINI LIBRARY, MAKING OFFICE & STAFF TABLES, BINDING OUR BOOKS, PREPARING LAND, PLANTING, SUCCESSFULLY CARRIED OUT A PILOT PROJECT ON CAT FISH FARMING/PRODUCTION,PREPARING THE FISH PONDS AND MANY MORE.
Through friends and well wishers, we have been able to put up a mini library with new syllabus based textbooks which we have been looking for, for a long time. For the books to have a meaningful/long live, we did binding on them.At least all our current pupils have access to use books as well as our teachers.
Most of our children are not able to pay the little fees charged by The GHC-school. For this reason and many others we have engaged in many income generating activities.The main ones are Crop/Green house farming & currently working on a fish farming project.
We prepared the open field and planted on Monday and hope to plant inside the green house on Wednesday 3/9/13.
We are in a small way working on the ponds. We hope that we shall at least have two of them ready for stocking by the end of the year.
We are planing to train one member on FISH INSEMINATION.
This will enable us to produce our own fingerlings and for sale.
It will be cheaper for us and generate funds to enable us support the many needy and worthy pupils in our school and the entire community.
If you have any information that may help us or link, kindly let us know. We now need more on fish insemination. Targeting CATFISH as they have produced fantastic results in the pilot project. On average 2.5kg within 10 months.
The Heavy rains in April flooded our green house and infected our tomatoes with Bacterium wilt which destroyed all of them.
Our hope to support the many needy children at the GHC school have been shattered by uncontrollable BACTERIUM WILT.
The crops did very well from the beginning but the heavy rains caused flooding and infected the tomatoes with the disease.
We are currently preparing land for sweet melon and or water melon.
All our investment was destroyed.
We are asking charities, friends and well wishers to help in starring another project- The fish farming project to compliment the green house and miniseries risks in case of any calamity.
We have dug the ponds but they can not hold water. we need liners/polythene sheets to enable retain water that we may be able to stalk our ponds soon.
You support is welcome.
Thank you very much.
