Budongo Women Progress Report

New partnership with Tweyemboke Agro Conservation
New partnership with Tweyemboke Agro Conservation

Dear Esteemed Donors,

We are so excited to share our happiness at Safeplan Uganda with all our donors because with our project the Budongo Women Bee Enterprises, since the campaign was launched in 2019, we have moved 1,000 miles much more as compared to the journey we moved from 2014.

In the recently concluded Climate change campaign, we managed to fundraise $2,991.02 from 24 donors and this enabled us;

  1. To produce our own sample of herbal syrup, we started with 20 litres or 200 bottles of 100mls.
  2. To produce 100 beehives boxes to a new group called Tweyombeke Agro Conservation Association.
  3. To clear all outstanding rent arrears and pending bills up to June 2021.

 We are indeed grateful for your contributions

We really appreciate how busy you are, however if you are interested to read more about our activities please visit our project reports, maybe read detail report below or learn how we make herbal syrup by visiting Kamilisha Herbal Syrup

Once more we are indeed grateful for your generous support.

 

Your sincerely,

 

Birungi Annet

Executive Director

More Stories about the Report.

Budongo Women Bee Enterprise is one of the Safeplan Uganda initiative founded in 2014. Until now, the project has won two Awards and impacted more than 1,000 lives, supporting women groups with more than 250 cost recovery bee hives boxes.

In April 2021 by joining other non-profit organization during the GlobalGiving Climate Campaign, we managed to raise almost $3,000 which enabled us;

  1. To produce our own sample of herbal syrup, we started with 20 litres or 200 bottles of 100mls.
  2. To produce 100 beehives boxes to a new group called Tweyombeke Agro Conservation Association.
  3. To clear all outstanding rent arrears and pending bills up to June 2021.

We also created a new partnership with one women’s group to benefit from our beehives loaning scheme – Tweyombeke Agro Conservation Group. Our intention is to increase honey production by multiplying beehives to benefit up to 1,000 each with 5 beehives by offering bee hives at initial cost of $10 and the women pay $25 for up to 12 months. We hope if they fail to raise the balance, they can pay with honey harvested. The groups are responsible for managing the beehives, and maintaining the apiary sites, while we at Safeplan Uganda provide free training and extension support to ensure the members benefit from the enterprise. We also try to link groups to both local and international partners. This way we are creating both funding and buyers of our honey products.

  1. In our new partnership with Tweyombeke Agro Conservation Association, we have supported them with 100 cost recovery bee hives and working on additional 70 bee beehives which we collected from initial payments
  2. We also supported them with hand tools for carpentry so they can also make their own boxes if they have the timbers and other raw materials.
  3. We have signed a memorandum of Understanding for this partnership for 3 years.

Tweyombeke Agro Conservation Association (TACA) is a registered local women group operating in one of the villages in Masindi where Safeplan Uganda operate its activities. They meet every Wednesday to save money which is shared at the end of the year. During the saving meetings they come and clean the apiary site as a group and all other activities which includes tree seed planting, agricultural seed multiplication and all other activities as a group. Safeplan Uganda also takes advantage of the group to sell energy product solar and cook stoves. These were all made possible because we have someone to move with us, to impact communities in Masindi.

We are mending a new partnership with Equity bank, a local finance institution that support youths and women with small loan of $100 -300. They support the group with financial literacy and other skills to manage their savings in the group. This way the groups can take small loan to finance individual apiary sites and also invest in household enterprises.

Overall, Safeplan Uganda works hard to ensure it meets its objectives. We appreciate our partners and well wisher who extend their support to our organisation to enable us cause the impact much needed by the world.
