Agriculture update from Bujuuko

IMG_3828There has been lots of exciting progress on site at Bujuuko over the past few months. We have increased our animal husbandry program, with goats and are completing construction of goat sheds and a pig pen to enable us to house a number of pigs. A security house has now been completed at Bujuuko to ensure animal security and we have a new guard dog. The entire 30 acres have been fenced and subsistence crops have been planted to feed the students of Katuuso Primary. An eco-friendly composting toilet has also been constructed as a test pilot to help create fertiliser for the land. Please click here to view a gallery of recent work.

Katuuso kids form a pen pal relationship with Pymble Ladies’ College

IMG_2288Our students have enjoyed writing pen pal letters to the Year 7 girls at PLC Pymble as part of their community service “World Wide Chat Group”.
It has been 5 weeks and both sets of students have really enjoyed sharing aspects about their lives both at home and school including hobbies, favourite foods, and favourite subjects. The children were excited to share stories about their homes, pets and family members. We look forward to starting the program again in November.
