Provide 100 Households in Uganda with Fruit trees

Thank you once again for supporting Mountains of Hope projects under GlobalGiving, our target next year is to have every family plant atleat 3 types of fruit trees namely, ovacado, mangoes, oranges- when children and adults eat fruits they continue living healthy as well as get an income from the sale of fruits, there is a high demand of fruits in the Ugandan market, only households with enough land will benefit from this project as those renting and in a small piece of land wont be able to grow much, however this project will also benefit a few with small land who can be able to atleat plant one tree.

This project targets to raise &500 by end of this year to enable us support 50 households plant atleat three fruit trees in their court yards, these trees also provide a shade for the households.

Hi

Thank you for supporting Mountains of Hope sustainable projects, in the months of June and July, we are delighted to have 3 interns from the United States to provide support for our Maternal Nutrition Project. Over the course of 10 weeks, Mountains of Hope will be visiting 9 communities in Mpigi. We have visited 5 so far, and we have enjoyed getting to know some incredible women along the way. During our time with these communities, we discuss balancing meals, preventing malnutrition, exercising proper infant feeding practices, and installing "kitchen gardens." We will establish a kitchen garden in each of our target communities, hoping that they will have the skills and motivations to establish additional gardens in our absence.

I hope you continue sharing our project updates with your friends and family

Hi

You have been such an asset to this program, Mountains of Hope is proud of you and all your financial donations to this particular project and other projects you have supported in Mountains of Hope.

This project is sensitizing community members the importance of fruit trees in their households, although we have not got enough funds to cover this project, but the knowledge given to them through meetings and trainings has creted awareness in the communities and its now rear to find a household without a fruit tree.

Your donations will always continue enabling us reach out to more communities to crete awareness and distribute a few seedlings to the needy ones.

We are looking forward to continuing partneship with you in this and many more Mountains of Hope projects under Globalgiving

Children are now healthy
Children are now healthy

Hi! Its #GivingTuesday today, donations on GlobalGiving will be matched at 50% with $500,000 in matching funds!

Hwever, It is with profound gratitude that I, on behalf of management and staff of Mountains of Hope, share our 2016 accomplishments with you and look forward to the new year.

Your donations have gone a long way in improving the lives of children and their communities in Mpigi, Uganda. The funds allowed us to host menstruation management programs, distribute water filters, increase computer literacy, increase school attendance, and continue working on our children's safe home.

Please consider donating again to continue providing children with a healthier, happier, safer, and more successful life. 

Menstruation Management

Through a collaboration with Nourish-UNC, we hosted 10 health interventions to train 600 people (234 mothers, 226 girls,65 men and 75 boys) in comprehensive sustainable menstruation management. Girls can now make and use their own sanitary pads and boys and men do support females during their menses. The local leadership now reports that girls rarely miss school because of lack of a sanitary towel.

The trainings also encouraged a group of local women to form “Seeta pad”. They took on the initiative to train other women and girls to sew their own pads. They also make over 50 pads per day which they supply to health centers and schools. Rose, their group leader, says they earn between $50 to $100 a week, allowing them to send their children to school and purchase healthy and sufficient food.

Computer Trainings

The computer training center established by Globalgiving donors has taught 20 students to use a computer and thereby attend college and find jobs afterwards. We have also hired one of the computer students as an IT technician as well as computer trainer, and plan to hire 2 more in the coming year as we establish our second computer center.

Water Filters

We also distributed water filters to 30 households and 2 primary schools using last year's funds from Globalgiving. These communities now have access to clean and safe water, dramatically decreasing the rates of water-borne illness.

Children's Home Update

The children’s home now has a banana plantation and other vegetables to enable children have enough food. The completion of this home will see over 50 children have some where to call a safe home.

Education

The Education interventions: Saw 600 children attending school regularly, 308 children in 2 Primary schools were enabled to have lunch at school for all the school terms as well as pay tuition for 40 children in Primary and secondary schools, 02 girls in a nursing school pursuing their Nursing dreams as well as 1 University student.

The Mountains of Hope programme targets vulnerable children 3-18 years aiming to improve literacy and basic life skills. Mountains of Hope works with guardians and communities to create a conducive learning environment and supports children both in and out of school.

Our Promise: Everything to the Community-

We use your donations responsibly. The administration of the Mountains of Hope is conducted as far as much as possible on a voluntary basis. Other costs like electricity, rent and internet are covered by fees from the computer training and printing center. We pledge to ensure that 90% of our funds are spent directly on community interventions.

How you can help!

Together, we can continue improving the lives of children in Mpigi, Uganda and beyond. You can consider to give a GivingTuesday gift to our projects today, we request you chose a project to support during this holiday on the Globalgiving site and make sure to tell your friends too!:

Continue paying children’s school fees and tuition to keep vulnerable children at school

Support children study their books even at home/complete assignments while at home through provision of solar lights as a simple solution to having light at night for rural school going children.

Hi

Thanks for your interest in the environmental conservation prpject we are implementing in Uganda.

This project has not yet taken off due to un availability of funds, but its aim is to address Pupil’s livelihood needs for income generation at schools, fuelwood for households, timber, fruit, fodder and other non-timber forest products while halting and reversing the trend of the forest loss and related environmental degradation in Mpigi district through promoting vegetable and fruit tree growing and agro-forestry systems.

Despite their potential as a food security, poverty alleviation, environmental conservation and sustainable livelihoods strategy, fruit growing and agroforestry practices are currently a relatively low-key economic activity in Uganda.

Moreover, although trees and forests are a critical resource for people’s livelihoods, environmental conservation and national economic development, tree and forest resources have significantly diminished in recent years due to an increase in the number of people depending on them for survival as well as a lack of alternatives.

"Will you support this programme and let it kick off?, do you? want to enable over 500 households have a sustainable environmental conservation strtegy? this is the right project to support" James, Mountains of Hope
