The KHPS poultry project is going on very well. The eggs are flowing in gradually with atleast 10 eggs per day and we have so far harvested 5 crates. A full crate holds up to 30 eggs.
We have started the execise of giving out the eggs to the KHPS children and since the total number of eggs coming out is inadequate the criteria we use to distribute the eggs to the children per class and the exercise will be rotating.
The chickens some time back were all vaccinated against New castle virus, a deadily disease that affects most the poultry industry. I was advised to do this by the chicken feed and poultry supplier in our area.
As with the local breed chicken, they are also doing fine and we have resorted to having them feed on free range during day time while at night time they are fed indoors.
Videos showing the egg distribution exercise are available on the KUHASCHOOL PROJECT YOUTUBE Account at http://www.youtube.com/user/Kuhaschoolproject
On another note i am informing the friends and well wishers of Kasese Humanist Primary School that the school has of recent identified and purchased land that will be a permanent home for KHPS and a fundraising drive is going on where we welcome donations to aid us finalise payment of this land.

This land is situated in Scheme Ward, Nyamwamba Division after the Nyamwamba Bridge along Kasese - Fort Portal road. Land mark features near this procured land is the Kasese Airfield, Nyamwamba river which the site borders in the west and the Highway in the north.
The land was purchased from a famous former town clerk of Kasese Town Mr. Cosmas Byaruhanga at the tune of 35 Million Uganda shillings and the transactions were executed under a reknowned Lawyer conducting business under the names of Sibendire Tayebwa & Company Advocates and Mr.Bwambale Robert Musubaho on behalf of Kasese Humanist Primary School who paid cash 17 Million shillings as first pay leaving a balance of 18 Million.
Kasese Humanist Primary School currently is renting building properties of the defunct Uganda Railways Corporation at a fee which the school management considers to be very high neccesitating a need for the school to have its own home. The new property is located approximately 3 KM from the current school site and there are many benefits at the new site like easy availability of sand, rocks, water and easy working soils where the school can put a series of projects like the ongoing poultry project, piggery, fruit growing, Class room blocks, staff quarters,play grounds, computer laboratory , spacious library and so on.
On the Land purchasing agreement, Kasese Humanist Primary School upon request by the seller want to get his balance of 18 Million shillings in a period of 2 months and deadline is on 28th March 2013.
Owing to the urgency of funds to complete the debt. The School Director, Bwambale Robert is going to work closely with a selected number of international friends and organizations to ensure we launch a fundraising campaign to raise the 18 Million Shillings (Approximately 7000 US$)

Kasese Humanist Primary School now has a 3000 Liter Plastic water tank that has been installed at the school premises.The tank has been fixed at a strategic location next to the western wing at the school campus where the tank will harvest rain water and this will save the school to cut down on its expenditure on water bills.
The funds that made this possible is a portion removed from the recently donated funds from Foundation Beyond Belief to Kasese Humanist Primary School. The exercise involved purchasing of sand, cement, rocks and a mason was hired to do the work of constructing the foundation slab for the water tank. Metallic gutters were also made to fix on the roof ends to collect rain water to the water tank. On the plastic tank, a tap was fixed to control water flow from the tank. An extra washer tap was fixed at the bottom end of the tank to aid in cleaning the water tank and relieve it of impurities.
More on this, The school Director will soon embark procuring library furniture and bookshelves to shelter the books that were recently donated to KUHA Library which is located at KHPS Site. Funds to facilitate this is still from the FBB Donation.
On behalf of Kasese Humanist Primary School , i thank Foundation Beyond Belief for supporting our school project. The harvested rain water will help the school with ready water and will act as a substitute to the water tap. The water will be used for cooking, bathing, washing clothes and cleaning the toilets.
