Back To School

Summary

During the month of August, 2023, parents prepared gardens for the mid-year season.

2nd Term ended in a bang with enough food delivered to the school throughout the 3 months! We managed to feed the children a healthy lunch byproviding; Cassava, Green bananas, Cabbage, Beans & Sweet potatoes.

Scholol supply was put on hold August 11th, 2023 because the 2nd term ended in mid-August. However, we still continued with lunch program by feeding the children from their homes. This implies that parents are sharing food at the farm to feed the children during the holiday.  We are now back to school after 4 weeks of holiday and we are looking forward to a fruitfull 3rd term.

Farm actvities include:

- Weeding in the Old banana plantation

- Weed the cassava garden

- Weed the banana plantation, and applied 5 trips of hamate (manure) in the most affected part of the new banana plantation

- Cleared space where beans will be planted

- Cleared space where maize will be planted

- Planted beans (20 Kgs)

Other activities within the lunch program:

In collaboration with African Empowerment Hub, Mwererwe CoU primary school received a donation of water bottle to all (350) children. This was a massive achievement because we are sure all children will drink safe boiled water preserved by the school. Parents should ensure better maintenance of the bottles including cleaning them every evening once children get back home.

Collaborated with UPDF security system to ensure security of the food / crops at the farm.

Challenges:       

The major challenge which is very consistent is lack of adequate labour force to care for the farm as we have now expanded to the full 10 acres. With this expansion we hope to feed 50 more familes once we get some more funding in the future with a master plan of how to increase the labour force for increased productivity.
