There 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.
Our inaugural Educate. Engage. Empower women’s luncheon was a huge success. We were lucky to be joined by incredible speakers Elizabeth Crouch, Linda O’Brien AM, Nadia Badawi AM, Jan Owen AM and Cassandra Kelly. Their presentations were honest and endearing. We raised $15,000 and were so grateful for the incredible support! Click here to view photos of the event.
This week, we farewelled our volunteer construction manager Marc Sazdanoff. We are so grateful for his amazing, hard work at Katuuso and Bujuuko, and constant positive, can do attitude. Whilst working with School for Life, he oversaw the construction of teachers’ accommodation, guttering on the rooftops, as well as construction of pig and goat sheds.
