Kibooba In Action
2011 was a huge year for Kibooba with the commencement of 4 Oneworld's first income generating project, the Cow Project. The goal is for the cows' milk to fund one teacher's salary and pay for the Cow Project operating expenses.

In late October the first cow went into labor. Sadly, the calf died during birth and the mother narrowly escaped death.  She managed to recover and has been producing milk. The second cow gave birth in mid November, and thankfully both mother and calf are doing well. The milk production of the second calf is currently lower than expected, but the milk sales from both should reach nearly $200 per month. The cows are managing to pay for their operating expenses, but only time will tell if the milk will in fact fund a teacher.

The garden project is moving along steadily in its 5th season. This time Kibooba was advised by the Makerere University Agriculture Doctors to plant vegetables in addition to the maize.  Petra, the
4 Oneworld Project Manager  has reported the rains have been favorable, and the recent crop seems to be doing well. All harvests have been utilized for the school lunch program for the students.

The end of the school year was celebrated in Kibooba with a party for the students, parents and community. Games were played, and food and drink were enjoyed by everyone.  Despite various challenges  it was a nice end to the year in Kibooba.
