Another year, another cup of porridge

Hello and Happy New Year!

In our last report I told you about the new nursery school we are building.  We are on course to have it completed (well, a building with a roof but maybe not painted) in time for the new school year in February.  At Seeds for Development, we are all about the detail and I thought I would share with you just how much goes into building a little village school..

So far, it has taken:

  • 20,560 Bricks
  • 264 kgs of nails
  • 101 Bags of cement
  • 60 Iron sheets
  • 40 Litres of wood preservative
  • 26 Lorry deliveries
  • 13 Local people employed
  • 12 Lorry loads of sand
  • 6 Lorry loads of aggregate
  • 5 Hacksaw blades

Going into this level of detail is critical for both us and the communities we support.  With another 3 nursery schools and a Peace and Reconciliation Centre being planned in 2020 it is essential to be able to plan and budget accordingly.

Our cups of porridge have been costing 8p per cup, but due to the terrible weather leading to poor harvests and a reduction of maize we think this is going to increase this year.  It won't stop us ensuring that every child receives their cup of porridge though.  

In other news, The 12 sponsored children (in the photo) who attend Mukono Boarding Primary School are getting ready to go back to school.  Florence (seen in the photo making porridge) is visiting each of them in their homes to make sure they are ready.  This includes testing them for Malaria, head lice and all sorts of other things.  This is really important as we have found in the past that they arrive at school and then fall sick.  Florence is also visiting the porridge schools to make sure they will be ready for the new term.

Thank you so much for your support and interest in our work, we couldn't do any of it without you.

With all best wishes for a fabulous 2020.
