Progress in Kibooba

4 Oneworld has been providing aid to the Kibooba Village Primary School since June of this year. The teachers’ salaries were the first priority.
Next, due to the rising food prices in Uganda, the 4 Oneworld board approved assistance for the school lunch program in late October.
Kibooba Step One
•    Fund teachers’ salaries
•    During the 2010 Uganda visit, research a
      variety of income generating projects to help fund
      the teacher’s salaries
•    Implement income generating projects
Kibooba Step Two
•    Provide school lunches 4 days per week until
      November 2010
•    Build a fence around school grounds, to provide
     security for the school and the garden project
•    Send 5 Kibooba citizens to the URDT
     Agriculture Program
•    Cultivate school garden to feed 150 students
The Board approved Step Two and it is currently in
action as Kibooba prepares for the URDT program in early December.


Uganda Rural Development Training (URDT)
The URDT agricultural training program is located in the Kibale district of Western Uganda. Their mission is to “create rural development through human development.” URDT trains people who live on less than $1 per day to take a visionary, entrepreneurial approach to developing their own lives, families and communities.

URDT has many educational endeavors and one focus is the Vocational Training Program. They offer a variety of training in building and construction, metal works and mechanics, weaving and crafts, carpentry and joinery, solar electricity, food processing, tailoring, beekeeping and sustainable farming. Students also learn humanities, entrepreneurship and business management.

The Director of the Kibooba Village Primary School Joel Gabula Ibanda will attend the training in December, along with the Head Teacher, Steven Mygoya. Shalima Mugalu, Catherine Luyiga and Joyce Namigadde represent the Kibooba Women’s Group and will also attend.
