BiZoHa / Brighter Brains Institute is dedicating the month of June to helping our newest friends in Uganda - the Buhanga Women’s Collective & Mother Ghivers Humanist School.
We built them a new Future Path Classroom (funded by Meredith Newman Debens),
Their two largest concerns are:
1) food for the children at Mother Givers Humanist School, and
2) salaries for the teachers.
Davida LeComte’s idea is to create a business that generates enough income to provide lunches to the children, permanently. Kabugho Victoriana and the other members of the Buhanga Women’s Collective agree.
Their plan, and we support, is to create a CHICKEN FARM.
380 chickens will produce enough eggs and meat to:
1) feed the children at Mother Givers School, and
2) sell or trade to buy the other ingredients needed for the healthy lunch: corn meal, beans, tomatoes, onions, plus other vegetables and fruit.
380 chickens! Want to help?
The budget is described HERE
Each chicken, plus the vaccinations, feed, and supplies to care for it, costs $10.
To donate, click:
HERE for 2 chickens
HERE for 5 chickens
HERE for 8 chickens
All donors will receive a tax deductible receipt, two free ebooks, and a personalized Thank You card from Buhanga children.
If you buy 8 chickens, you also get a BiZoHa t-shirt.
What else do our wonderful friends in Buhanga need?
Teacher salaries. At the the present time, they get paid a mere $44 month in salaries. (Faculty can be viewed HERE)
We would love to encourage them by adding bit of cash to their salaries. We especially want to support our new Humanist teacher — Masereka Sebastian.
