Kibuye Project overview

AASU’s first community project is focusing on the village of Kibuye in North Eastern Kamuli, on the shores of the Victoria Nile. Kibuye has an estimated population of 60,000 people and is spread over 27 by 35km. The majority of the population is highly dependent on subsistence farming and barter trade within village in order to survive.

Before the project began, Kibuye was dependent upon one borehole for safe drinking water. Due to long lines when collecting water many have been choosing to fetch water from the river, which has caused illness through water born diseases. The village also only has one school, consisting of two classrooms accommodating roughly 600 children. The children that can’t walk the distance to the school simply don’t attend. The majority of children do not attend school, either due to distance or family circumstance, consequentially 80% of Ugandans over the age of 15 are illiterate.

So far within the Kibuye project AASU has been able to buy four acres of land at the East end of the village on which we have built a bore hole and are currently building classrooms for the Arise and Shine Nursery and Primary School which is due to open for the start of the school year in February 2011.

Well come home Ezra!

Just a small up date to let you know our precious one is back! God is keeping him alive for a reason. Ezra came back home last night.He is weighing 1.8 kg meaning he has put on 0.2 kg. I could see he has grown so much in the time he has been away . He has developed nails, he didnt have them before. I hope i told you that he was a premature.

Ezra is opening his eyes so wide now and complains at any discomfort. This morning, the arise and shine Nurse put an iv on his hand and he didnt like it. But he only gets this treatment today and tomorrow and then he will be fine .
He looks amazing! Sleeping lots, only waking up to eat and sleep again. Thank you to all of you who donated some money to go to his medical. You were God sent to save his life. We all know that one day, Ezra will minister to so many souls, serving God's children . We look forward to when God's plans for Ezra unfold. 

Jeremiah is also doing so much better, though he still has some cough.We are treating it and hope it will pass soon.

The rest of the babies are doing well. Yesterday we received some blankets and soy based formular from a team from 60 feet.This was so nice. Those are some of our greatest needs. Most of our children are baby babies. Formular, onesies, blankets, crib sheets are so much needed in our house hold.

At the moment we also have alot of children sharing beds. We wish to get 12 more beds so that each one of them can have their own bed. 

Please help contribute to buy more beds for our children, this would help minimize infections. You can all donate on this blog and you will get tax deductable receipts.

Thank you for following us, have a blessed day.
