BOOK FUND 2024 – Term 1 Support

The Book Fund donated in 2023 scholastics, playing equipment and IT support to thirteen schools of different nature. This success challenged the Tusaidiane Trust to review in October 2023 the guidelines for participation and the annual structure. The Guidelines can be found on this website under “EDUCATION”.

Annually. there will be 2 rounds for the Book Fund. The first one will be operational at the start of Term-1 (1st half-year) and the second one will be operational at the start of Term-3 (2nd half-year).

From November 2023 to January 2024 ten (10) schools worked hard to provide pupils and teachers in their schools a better start in Term-1 2024 than ever before.

They are:

1 St. Kizito Secondary School
2 Cardinal Nsubuga Memorial PS

Management of all schools have promised to write about their experiences, how they implemented their project, and what it means for pupils, teachers, and parents.

Some already did. You will find their contribution by clicking on the name of the school, which is highlighted and underlined.

Look also to the new Book Fund Guidelines under INTERVENTION/EDUCATION and under Scholastics and IT for a thrilling development for the 2nd half-year, initiated by school teachers.

A successful story to hear!

It is great to see an organization like Support Disabled Children Ggaba (SDCG) finding innovative ways through CONGRAVA and other donors to support disabled children, 3 of whom successfully underwent surgery. Fish farming has proven for SDCG to be a sustainable and profitable venture, providing a source of income for the organization.

Fish farming is a form of aquaculture where fish are raised in controlled environments such as ponds, tanks, or cages. It can be a profitable business when managed effectively, and it offers several benefits. Some of the advantages of fish farming include:

  1. Income generation: Fish farming is providing a consistent source of income for Support Disabled Children Ggaba. By selling the fish they raise, they have generated revenue to support the surgical needs and aftercare of the children.
  2. Nutritional support: Fish has a valuable source of protein and essential nutrients. By engaging in fish farming, the organization can also provide nutritious food for the children they support, promoting their overall health and well-being.
  3. Vocational training: Fish farming can serve as a vocational training opportunity for the disabled children. By learning the skills involved in fish farming, they can develop valuable expertise and potentially find employment opportunities in the future.
  4. Environmental sustainability: Well-managed fish farming practices can have a lower environmental impact compared to traditional fishing methods. By practicing sustainable fish farming techniques, the organization can contribute to the conservation of aquatic resources.

Overall, integrating fish farming into their income generation activities showcases the innovative and sustainable approach taken by Support Disabled Children Ggaba. It not only supports the children’s immediate surgical needs but also helps create a long-term, self-sustaining model to support their ongoing aftercare and well-being.
