Here we will report again what our team experienced on our trip from December 2, 2018 to January 2, 2019, what tasks we had locally and how your donations were used. We wish you a lot of fun reading. December 17th, 2018 Finally we see the girls from Mirembe Cottage again. At first the new team members are shown and explained the whole project. Afterwards we help with the completion of the drawn cards. It is a lot of fun to work with the bright colours. After lunch, Isa, Moni and Nadja can also put together their individual bracelets, necklaces or earrings from the paper beads known for Uganda. The day ends with a typical snack in Uganda, a Rolex. This is a kind of thick pancake (chapatti), followed by an omelette with paprika, onions and tomatoes. This is then rolled up. This could be called fast food here. ButWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Finally the Christmas Gift project 2018 has started. If you would also like to give a Christmas present to a child in one of the three Sonrise Ministries houses, a child of the caregivers, the caregivers themselves or the families in Masese this year, then click on the following link and you will be forwarded directly to the project page. There are some new features compared to last year. So we have set up a “big pot” for those who don’t want to decide for a certain child. All further information about the project and the changes can be found under the following link: Christmas presents
Often we receive open donations that don’t have a particular purpose so we decided to create a project folder for these kind contributions. We will use these donations depending on the acute needs that we see and where the money is needed most. This can be for one of the construction projects, for medicine, food or also for the shipment of commodity items to Uganda. Moreover we would like to use a small amount of these contributions for some of the minor cost we incur during our project work, for example petrol costs or food for the Sonrise employees when they accompany us on trips etc. That way we assure that project donations are used 100 % for desired projects. For this project the amount of donations collected by Peace’s Hope e.V. has reached 3,769.01 Euro Already invested as an association locally: 5,080.41 Euro If you want to contribute to this projectWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Until recently, the Mirembe Cottage of Street Girls was situated in a rented building which doesn’t have provided enough room for the increasing number of girls for quite some time. Thanks to some donations we were able to buy a piece of land in Wakikoola which is only a few minutes away from Jinja. With this project the founders of Sonrise Ministries also want to help people who don’t belong to their organisation. The extensive project envisages the construction of several buildings like two residential buildings, one for the girls and one for the staff, a school, one water well, sanitary facilities, solar collectors, a defensive wall, a cafeteria, a small hospital and many more. The project will be realised according to the incoming amount of donations. It will also benefit the surrounding community which currently lacks a school, a hospital and only offers a few jobs nearby. TheWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Until lately the Sonrise Children’s Home was situated in a rented building which didn’t provide enough room for the increasing number of children for some time. Thanks to some donations we were able to buy a piece of land in Kamuli which is roughly a two-hours drive away from Jinja. There are several reasons why we bought a piece of land that far away. It was not only the prize, but also the Sonrise Ministries founders’ vision to help people not only within but also outside of their own organisation. The extensive project envisages the construction of several buildings like a number of residential buildings for the children and staff, some school buildings, water wells, sanitary facilities, solar collectors, offices, a cafeteria, a hospital, a library, a guest house, a farm and many more. The project will be realised according to the incoming amount of donations. It will also benefitWeiterlesen / Continue reading
It often happens in Uganda that suppliers place disproportionately high invoices for water and they don’t even stop at orphanages. Using a deep well, equipped with a solar powered pump and a filter system, would allow the Sonrise Babies Home to completely obtain their own fresh water from ground water. The whole project will cost 19,900 Euros of which 11,650 Euros have already been collected even before the non-profit organisation was founded and which is kept safely in our Euro account in Uganda until the Sonrise Babies Home will have moved to its new destination. To finish up with the project 8,250 Euros are still needed. For this project the amount of donations collected by Peace’s Hope e.V. has reached: 2,290 Euro Feel free to fill out the following donation form if you want to support this project.
Another big step towards independence for the three homes is the establishment of a farm. For example, cows daily supply fresh milk for the children, chicken eggs, beef cows meat etc.. The cultivation of vegetables and fruit also helps to increase independence. And everything that arises as overproduction can be sold additionally. In order to be able to adequately supply the constantly growing number of home residents, there is a need for the following animal species, seeds, stables etc., which are listed below. The prices quoted for animals are based on recent purchases: Farm animals: Dairy cows at the price of 498 Euro each, beef cows at the price of 555 Euro each, goats at the price of 38 Euro each, male goats at the price of 75 Euro each, chickens at the price of 3.50 Euro each, turkeys at the price of 25 Euro each, male turkeys at the price of 38Weiterlesen / Continue reading
