In Buwunga Village, Judith’s dream of becoming a medical nurse was about to be snatched away—along with her childhood. At only 12, she was presented to the man who would soon be her husband. NIRP staff and community workers met with Judith’s parents, explaining the physical and psychological dangers of early marriage, and the country’s laws against the practice.

The wedding was called off. NIRP empowers children and their families in every community by giving them tools and protecting children from abuse and exploitation, including awareness of the laws that protect them. Join us

Why chicken of peace!

Chicken create steady income for needy children and their families. Sustainable incomes lead to peaceful families. Chicken project can provide a steady sustainable income to provide for the needs of vulnerable children. 2 hens and a roaster(cock) can produce up to 150 eggs a year, which can be eaten, sold or hatched to provide a continual supply of nutritious food and essential income. Give wings to a family’s dreams with this wonderful gift—a Ugandan delicacy, year after year. Needy children raising their own chickens means that families don’t have to buy eggs, freeing up their hard-earned income for other needs, such as their children’s education or health care.

A few months ago, NIRP supported 5 children with 2 hens and 1 Roaster and the results were amazing. From 2 hens to a poultry family. It was amazing how our little investment in these kids turned out to a model example in the community. the supported children can easily access their basic needs and the families can easily pay for their education and medication. Amazing support. We can up with chicken of peace after realizing the impact the poultry birds brought in the lives of needy children. This is the genesis of our campaign ,”Chicken of peace” hosted on 1% Club fundraising website in the Netherlands. All donations are online. You can also buy gift vouchers for your beloved friends.

Campaigning for pigs of power

This pig brings prosperity and health to families.

Imagine the impact you will have when you provide for the well-being of a child, with the gift of a pig. This gift includes training on care of the pig, an ample supply of fortified feed and starter inoculations. Pigs are needed in Uganda.

Juliet Tumuhimbise 36 years is a member of Twegatte Women’s SHG in Bulando Village in Buwunga Subcounty. During the SHG group meetings, group members are trained in  different life skills among which they are trained in creation of Small scale Enterprises. Trained in livestock keeping and arable crops practices. Juliet lost her husband in 2008 due HIV and AIDS. She survives with 4 children.

Juliet was identified by the group members for our livestock empowerment program by her group members. Where Juliet received a pig in 2010. Juliet had to give back a piglet to another group member when the pig given to her produced offsprings. Before the end of 2010, Juliet’s pig produced 11 piglets and then gave back the piglet to another group member and the original pig become her own. She remained with the mother pig and 10 piglets. Unfortunately 2 of them died due to untraceable causes. But Juliet continued in the piggery project.

She took care of the 8 remaining pigs and sold 6 of them Euro 10 each. She continued rearing the 3 pigs. She remained with only female pigs. She used  the funds to start a small business of selling Charcoal in the nearby trading centre. Juliet’s pigs produced again each producing 9 piglets making it 27 plus 3 mother pigs making it 30 pigs. Juliet took care of the  pigs well and after 2 months sold 20 piglets each at Euro10. She used the funds to buy new iron sheets for  the leaking roof of her house. Juliet continues to prosper in the piggery project. Currently her piggery project has 20 mother pigs. She a happy women and she sends her 4 children to good schools. Morestill the pig dung helps her provide organic fertilisers for her crops making her agriculture products more health hence maximum yields. She says with a smile, even my charcoal business is growing day by day and she has employed another person to help her in the charcoal business. She estimates her charcoal business to worth Euro1,500.

Juliet wants to built a better family house. She says, she will have to make sure that her children attain the best education in life. Thanks to all persons of goodwill;advocates and donors that support our work. To take action to support our work,Click hereImage

Social support,children

Thanks for your generous support.

A week ago , I visited Grandmother Anna. I think you all remember the old woman we supported with a House. She lives with 8 oprhans who are her grandchildren. She took on the responsibility when her daughters and children died of HIV and AIDS. She takes care of all the children by tilling the land to grow food besides growing vegetables for survival.

During the visit I took with some material social social support. She welcomed with smiles. I took soap maize flour, beans and cooking oil. She was extremely happy and requested God to continue blessing our work. “Thank you very much, God bless you always,” said Grandma Anna. They are happily living in their house and the children are safe now. The house gives the good warmth, no roof leaks like before, the house is clean free of jiggers and other disease carrying insects. The old woman says the children now sleep well even during the rainny season.

They no longer have to change positionswhen it rains because of the leaking roofs. Iam now safe with my children and my property is also safe said Grandma Anna. Less malaria infections in the family because of safe housing unlike before.  Grandma Anna is now a smiling woman and she has a story to tell. Her hope was restored with generous support. It is now time to give Grandma Anna’s family a source of income with animal gifts. She will be supported with 5 chicken as soon we get funds for the poultry birds. Here she will be able to get eggs for nutrition and income in the family. As the chicken give chickes then they can expand the poultry project. In the long run the family will be able to buy household basics and pay school fees for some of the children.  Click the following link to run more:
