Farming on the School Premises.
This year we have had a lot of sunshine, and the gardens are under a strict irrigation scheme. We have planted cabbage, watermelon, carrot, onions etc. on the school premises. During the long holidays, Emmanuel trained some of the children so that they can also practice good farming techniques at home when they are out of school.
The school as well as the main Farm at Harwera, growing plenty of maize – corn. In March Emmanuel harvested the Maize dried them and processed them and now they are ready for graining at the Maize Mill.
New challenges faced by NEEPUganda
Last week Emmanuel went to Fort Portal to purchase spare parts for the tractor. On the way home, a motorcyclist swerved into his lane and in order to avoid hitting the man, Emmanuel hit another vehicle and rolled his truck. Only by the Grace of God, although he suffered minor injuries Emmanuel is ok. Unfortunately, the truck will be too costly to put back on the road.
The Secondary building is not yet completed. Our prayer is that God would bring together those to help finish the first phase or the whole structure, to avoid depreciation due to unfinished construction.
This year we have been blessed that some of you have come to visit us. We look forward to others who will come later this year. Thank you for all that you are doing to help, thank you for bringing others who join with us here in Uganda to give wisdom and increase courage. You are welcome here.
Again, thank you for loving us and the children here in Nyamabuga.
Love, your family at NEEPUganda
