Report from Bamunaanika Youth Development Group
It is great pressure to represent to you our report about Bamunaanika Youth Development Group, led by Kimbowa Ivan. This group is located in Bamunaanika Village in the Mityana district which is 2 km from Mityana-Mubende high way.
The report am sharing is about the good work being done by friends from The People's Hub and Socially Homes International, and other volunteers team in Africa and Europe who are working well hard to help the people in our communities.
Our group has more than 30 members and we are so happy for the help. The Peoples Hub have been helping the Bamunaanika youth and the children especially the orphans. They have helped to fund us and got us support for food. With the funds we also managed to also get some fertilizer for the agricultural projects and now have some land, and we will start growing our own food to feed the children.
We thank the hub for their time and love that they have for the people of Mityana in Uganda. We are grateful for the money as we used it to get items for the children such as art and craft making materials, food and also items for our agricultural project.
Bamunaanika Youth Group projects are doing well. Projects include Book making, Vaseline and soap making. We have started by making books from local materials like cassava flour and we see that our aim of lifting the poor from poverty is being solved by employing local farmers of cassava.
We have made some creative books but we now have a problem. We were taking our work into town and using an old cutting machine but the machine is not in good condition anymore.
We are asking the hub and friends if there is anyway they can help, maybe could help us source a new one through donations or alternatively someone if the region may have a second hand machine. We hope by sharing this information someone somewhere can help us.
A new cutting machine costs 6,000,000 UGX which is equal to £1,328.64 which we can't afford to get ourselves so we are looking at buying a 2nd hand one or if anybody has a used machine they no longer need we would be very grateful.
If you wish to donate to this project, please donate via PayPal [top of the page on the right] and just add a note that the money is for Kimbowa and the children in Mityana and we will send them the money direct straight away. Or alternatively if you have an old machine get in contact and we will ask one of our friends in Uganda to arrange the necessary transport to pick up so there is no inconvenience to yourself.
