Anti-HIV Youth Clubs in Rabbit Rearing

As it was in plans since 2009 and under the support of Mr. Bjorn, an International Participants from the Netherlands, the project has been reinforced, and another project to motive primary students was initiated. The project was entitled the Rabbit for Performance.

Last time, pupils who performed well during the first term, i.e. the firsts in their respective classes from year one up to six, were given a female rabbit, as an award and a motivation to keep on performing good. The students were to rear these livestocks not only to reinforce their scholar curricula on biology, general knowledge and agriculture, but also to introduce animal proteins in their daily ratios and the last but not the least to generate income.

NYAKAGEZI Anti-HIV Youth Club has a such project that will help its members improving their life standards in future.The rabbit project is owned by the Nyakagezi Anti-HIV Youth Club. The Club members select the rabbits to breed before selling their babies. Rabbits were chosen since they have a short gestation period and are able to produce a number of offsprings. This enables members to make some incomes quickly. 

The Club members use the money to pay their school fees,to afford medical insurance and buy some clothes they need. The project has faced some problems over the years but is planning to address them with trainings by professionals and raise funds from different donors.

Today is a Global Giving Match Day!

 Dear Supporters,

I would first like to sincerely thank you for your support of GlobeMed and our partner Set Her Free! Your contributions have already made a huge impact on the lives of the girls at the Glory of Christ Primary School in Kampala, Uganda by providing them with 100 reusable sanitary pad kits that will develop their vocational skills and allow them to reach their full academic potential unhindered by their menstrual cycles.

Today, we invite you to join us in continuing to support our work to help young women become empowered by making a gift of any size. Any gift that you make today will be matched by 30% in a matching gift made by Global Giving! This is a great opportunity for us to make an even bigger impact in the lives of these girls.

We cannot do this work without your support! Gifts of any size make a huge difference in helping to provide necessities to these girls; in the past year alone, gifts of under $100 totaled to over $1000 in support, which is a true testament to the power of communal giving.

Again, please consider supporting us today on Global Giving’s match day! This important work has been made possible because of the gifts we receive from donors like you. We are so thankful for your past support, and ask that today you join us in making a gift to one of our campaigns so that these girls can continue receiving the vital services that they need.

Thank you again for all that you have done to help our cause.

With much gratitude,

Angela Chen

Farming season start

The women were working hard during the last summer to prepare a field for the new season that start in september. The rain season have started and it is raining well for them to cultivate. RVCP is working closely with the local leaders in charge of agriculture to provide them the fertilizer and the good seeds for growing. The local leaders at the sector level collabolate with the Rwanda Agricultural  Board to search good seeds which have found to provide a good harvest. 

They started to prepare the final field area during the past few weeks and they report that they are progressing well. We are also pushing them to cultivate early as possible so that the rain in January stops after having their plants well grown to obtain the good harvest. 

The rice cultivation require a lot of energy but we are organizing them in way that it will be easy for them to work together. The rice will make them having it for consumption at home and for the market in order to gain some income to spend in home needs.
