Thanks and update from the Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service

We had a good visit out to the Simien Mountains to check on the project activities, 26 November until 6 December. During our visit we completed a technical site survey for the solar power installation at our clinic in Kiyet with an engineer from RET and our own technical advisor from Gonder University Hospital. The survey went well and we were able to finalise the project proposal. The installation should begin late January of early February and will take about a week.

The GBP 11,000 we received from the Kitchen Table Charities Trust will cover just over 70% of the total costs. The remainder we can cover. The solar power will make such a huge difference to the quality of service we can provide.

Thanks again to the KTCT for making this possible.

Thanks from Charité Chrétienne pour Personnes en Détresse, providing clean water and sanitation to schools in Togo

Thanks KTCT for supporting our work in digging shallow wells and building 4 compartment latrines with urinals – for the benefit of hundreds of pupils at two primary schools here in Togo..

Thanks to your valuable support, we have the power to give more people access to clean water and sanitation. This will bring change to just about everything. The incidence of diseases that affect pupils’ health will be reduced. School attendance and exam results will improve. And many pupils, especially girls, will be able to receive an education now they are saved from the exhausting, daily chore of walking long distances to collect water.

None of this would be possible without your generous donation. From all of the staff at CCPD and the people we work with, thank you. God bless KTCT! Long life to the supporters and trustees.

Thanks from the Oruba Sisters Women Group, on behalf of Karungu Community

We never know that we could make a difference in the community, we are just local women with not much education, but a heart to make a change to other women and to the less privilege children in the community, and this has just been made possible with the support of the grant we received from KTCT.
Disability in the villages have never been looked into and no one has been interested in helping, this made children with disability to drop out of school due to difficulties they face making them the most illiterate children in the community, therefore considered useless. Now thanks to KTCT grant, the lives of the disabled children have to be the same as others in the community.

On behalf of Karungu Community, we thank you for this opportunity.

Thanks from GWEFODE helping women and children in Uganda

Thank you KTCT Supporters for awarding a grant of £10,500 to GWEFODE. Indeed, KTCT confirms to its slogan of “Changing lives by thinking small” and is best known for supporting small charities that transform people’s lives with very little money.

This donation will go a long way in enabling GWEFODE to improve access to clean water and food security by building rainwater storage tanks in 10 women-led households, training in their construction and establish kitchen gardens in Kabale District of Uganda. This donation will enable over 350 people to fetch clean water at the door steps without walking long distances and improve food security especially for women and children who are faced with the same task.

This will promote women’s empowerment, save time and energy especially for women and children, which will be spent on other activities that will contribute significantly to poverty alleviation, reduce violence and diseases.
For this reason, GWEFODE owes a great debt of gratitude to KTCT.

Thanks from vulnerable households in Wamunga Village

Concerted Effort Uganda is pleased to acknowledge receipt of funds from KTCT to support a poultry project targeting women in fifteen vulnerable households in Wamunga Village.

The project will build a poultry shelter and provide ten indigenous chickens for each of the fifteen beneficiaries. They (beneficiaries) will be trained on the basics of poultry keeping and shall with the help of a veterinary specialist, periodically receive expert advice on poultry keeping.

The implementation of this project will diversify the economic activities of these women thus improving food security and nutrition in their households. The income from the sale of poultry and poultry products will also help them to cater for other needs of their households without necessarily depending on their husbands, some of whom have (unfortunately) neglected their family roles.

I am exceedingly grateful to KTCT and its generous supporters for funding our organization to carry out this project.

Update from the Children of Choba Hostel

Just to let you know that the hostel is 99% finished! Class 7 completed their National Exams last week and the boys were determined to spend a few nights in their hostel before going home. There are a few jobs left to be finished but they are small – fitting mosquito netting, anti vermin wire and curtains to the windows and varnishing the beds. The school is now closed for half term so we expect to complete these things next week when we open.

I attach photos and have posted a few more on Facebook. It’s not actually necessary to be on Facebook yourself to see our posts, you can just go to the News page of our website
