PROGRESS IN KACHICA

2018 ACTION PLAN FOR KAMULI CHILD CARE

The main activity for the 2018 action plan is constructing  a 2 classroom block and water harvesting. So far our partners from the Netherlands( the Malden/Heumen Church, Sint Nicholaas school and Mirembe Foundation) have fully supported the kamuli community.

The new block is about to be finished and water harvesting tanks will be soon put in place.

On the 7th of May Kamuli community received the chairman of Rotary  Woerden, Netherlands Miss Meike te Giffel and her husband Wim. The purpose of the visit aimed at looking to the community and developing together a water project which could possibly be funded by Rotary Netherlands as they have been doing with other TUL projects.

We concluded  drilling of a borehole, pumping the water to the school and letting it flow by gravity to the town for the community to access. The chairman Rotary will work on the fundraising in the Netherlands.

FOCDA ACHIEVEMENTS

Sign Language Training

Through a private donor, Tusaidiane Uganda  reached a hand to Friends of the community Development Association( FOCDA) in 2017 with a training in sign language for the deaf. One member from the family of each deaf person would also participate. The training took 5 months and the results were very  positive. The training aimed at empowering the deaf and their family members with communication skills.

In the attached document details of the learning are elaborated.

DRINKING WATER FOR THE NKOKONJERU COMMUNITY

THE GOOD NEWS

If sensitization of the community is done well, there will be safe drinking water for many people in Nkokonjeru . A number of distribution points were put up around the purifier, so that every one in the community can access the safe drinking water. With good water management it will be possible to extend the drinking water supply  to the nearby hospital.
