Kyongera Agriculture Project – Peanuts and Beans
With the next rainy season nearly upon them, Bringing Hope to the Family is desiring to get their farm cultivated and the next round of seeds in the ground before the rains get to heavy. This need is for the peanut, or as they are called in Uganda “G Nuts,” and bean section of the farm. This will cover the entire process from start to finish for this part of the farm. It is our goal to raise $410 towards this need.
Mosquito Nets, Only $10 Each
As Bringing Hope has been fighting the war on Malaria in the Kyenjojo District their supply of nets has dwindled down. Many of these nets are hung by volunteers when they are with us. In order to continue assisting their surrounding communities we need to stock up on nets once again. On average each mosquito net provides a safe sleeping area for 2 people. It is our goal to raise $300 towards this need.
Dorcas Vocational School – Latrine/Shower (Kyongera)
This need is for the construction of a new latrine/shower in Kyongera. This will be used by the students and staff of Dorcas Vocational School. This construction will consist of 4 latrine stalls, as well as 4 shower stalls. It is our goal to raise $400 towards this need.
Please join us to meet these needs.
