November 21 Newsletter

A reminder that details of our Christmas Appeal are on the website, or just email to let us know which gift certificates you would like:

£10 buys a farmer a hoe and a watering can – the basic tools each farmer needs

£20 buys a selection of maize, bean, cabbage and onion seeds – the basic foods in each garden

£50 buys a spray pump and fertiliser for a group of farmers to share

Milton went with the Sub-County Agriculture Officer to the research institute and bought 62 bags of Cassava which have been distributed to 46 farmers in Kyemula – Milton says the crop will mature quickly and doesn’t require a lot of rain – and fortunately it was raining when the farmers were planting. We doubt that cassava will do well in Namayili so have to find an alternative crop there.

The President has announced that primary schools will remain closed until after Christmas – we are still paying the school staff 50% of their salaries – and will do so until they can resume work

The Bunyanga Bright staff from Namayili thanked us for this much valued support

Both schools are in need of substantial work – to complete the Nursery in Kyemula and to repair the second classroom block in Namayili.We had delayed committing resources to these two major projects as it was unclear what other needs might arise, particularly with the uncertainties of the pandemic.However as it would clearly be beneficial to complete the work before the children return we have now given the go ahead for both

Ellie, our lovely volunteer, who organised the Step Challenge earlier this year is undertaking a bigger challenge on 7th November by running the Reading Half Marathon in aid of 3H. This is the link to her Give As You Live page if you would like to sponsor her:

We look forward to hearing how it went, Ellie! Good luck! And thank you…
