It was such an exciting moment to Kitovu Mobile AIDS organization and to the out of school youth to host two global giving members of staff. During this visit the Kitovu Mobile Management team lead by Charles Matovu  had a brief and  informative meeting where Britt lake and Alexandra discussed with members the available opportunity at global Giving website and the possibilities of kitovu Mobile making use of them. Through the sharing session, Global giving staff were overwhelmed by the enormous amount of work done by kitovu Mobile team to support the people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in a holistic manner.

After the meeting, the team visted one of the project sites where they met youth living with HIV who had been facilitated with small projects ranging from keeping local chicken to piggery projects. The youth ably explained how they are benefiting from the projects and their commitment to scale up the size of projects.

It was observed that youth didn't have approprite structures to keep their animals and birds and as a result they were finding problems to do thorough cleaning of the structuers and to maintain high standards of hygiene.

It was noted that poor housing structure did not only hinder the youth to ensure high standard of hygiene but also, it was not possible to trap manure and urine to fertlise their gardens which would help them to get high yields.

In consideration of the above mentioned challenges, in the next fundraisng campaign we have aimed at mobilising resources  to support the construction of good animal structures that can trap manure and urine.

We therefore, call upon all wellwishers and friends of Kitovu Mobile to support this noble cause.

We  have budgeted a piggery unit to cost $ 160 . However there is no need to worry about this big amount of money. we believe that together we can cause a change if every one contributes something.

15 dollars  buy 1 bag(50kgs) of cement

20 dollars buy 1 turpline for roofing

2 dollors   buy 1kg of Nails

2 dollors   buy 1 pole 

15 dollors buy 1 trip of sand

40 dollars pay for labour for constructing.

I conclude by this phrase " if you want to see a change you must be part of it".
