March 2014 Update

Tailoring students with bee suits they have made
Tailoring students with bee suits they have made

After a slow start to the rainy season the rains have been better than last year - promising a reasonable harvest. Some maize and beans are well on their way at Kaliyangile. These crops will be primarily used to feed the students and the livestock.

An introductory course in bee-keeping was given in December and, when the rains stop next month, the bee-hives will be sited around the Centre and the real work will begin.

The tailoring students are proving themselves competent and are starting to earn some money. They are currently using the equipment at the Centre to establish themselves – some have now been able to buy their own sewing machines and begin to start their own businesses.

On the poultry side, the new layers are now becoming productive, laying about 250 eggs a day. There is a great demand for eggs in Chisamba with a steady stream of customers visiting the centre daily.

The piggery is ready to receive a pregnant sow. This will mark the start of this new enterprise.

I hear also that the fish have grown well in the small reservoir on site and will soon be ready for market.

In recent months calves have been born and the milk production will be increased.

I will be visiting Zambia next month and will spend some time at Kaliyangile working with the local management to see how we can further improve the opportunities for the local teenagers. By introducing them to a range of skills we hope to enable them to provide for themselves and their families.

Thank you for your support!
