Meet Alisha Henry, 4 Oneworld Intern

Alisha Henry is a senior at Western Michigan University and is volunteering her time this summer to 4 Oneworld. She is studying Communications and Non-profit management and plans to graduate in 2011. Alisha will be utilizing her skills to assist in fundraiser coordination, marketing and seeking corporate supporters.
4 Oneworld is thrilled to have Alisha as part of the family.
Thank you, Alisha for being 4 Oneworld.


Challenges with the Poultry Project

The poultry project in Kibooba continues to face many challenges.
The chickens are not producing at their optimal level. Poor feed formulas seem to be the main culprit, but a reliable supplier has yet to be found.
Recently the chickens were counted and 40 were missing. Joel Ibanda, the Kibooba contact, was unable to give an explanation to 4 Oneworld Manager, Petra Namakula.   Unfortunately theft is a likely possibility. 4 Oneworld is working with Joel to increase security of the chicken house and to find ways to improve egg production. 

4 Oneworld will continue to monitor and assess the situation to see if the poultry project is indeed a viable income generating project in Kibooba. 
Thank you to poultry expert Dr. Connie Kyarisiima from Makerere University for providing us with her valuable professional knowledge and insight.


Happy Birthday to Lesley Medforth of St. Albans, England!

A donation to the Kibooba Primary School Project was given to honor Lesley’s  birthday. 

Give the gift of education as a birthday present. Tell your friends and family that, instead of gifts, you would like to make a difference in the lives of deserving children in Africa. Contact tara@4oneworld to donate today!
