Seeds for Development Parabongo
PARABONGO

Parabongo is the first place Alison visited in northern Uganda in 2008.

On that trip she met these women and couldn't walk away after giving her word that we would support them.

Today we support farming projects, 2 nursery schools and a group of war surivors called The LRA Survivors.  We are helping them build a Peace and Reconciliation Centre.

OTICI

Otici is the village the furthest away from Gulu. It used to take hours and hours to get there and we still get stuck in the mud on a regular basis.

The people of Otici are an inspiration. They work so hard and are so determined to lift themselves out of poverty.  They have built a  nursery school - it is called St Peters and lead the way with the coffee growing project that we started 10 years ago.  This is Simon who co-ordinates our projects and drives the community forwards.

Seeds for Development Child Mothers
KORO

Koro is home to three groups of Child Mothers.

1. The Originals
We met the child mothers in 2011.  They were abducted during the war, raped and had babies. They either escaped or were rescued from the rebels and formed this group to support each other.
 

2. The Child Mothers Child MothersNow the Originals are older, they are mentoring a group of younger child mothers.
 

3. The Child Mothers Breakaway

This group is amazing. Set up by 2 of the Originals, they are a driving force and beating every other communtiy with their achievements.

Here they are - excited, motivated and ready to build their community.

Seeds for Development Nge Kidi
NGE KIDI

Nge Kidi is near Kitgum and one of the villages that Forgotten People's Projects supports. 

We met them in 2014 and have supported them since then by providing them with seeds and helping the nursery school with a monthly contribution that pays for 2 teachers and the cook. 

 

We also make sure that every child at the school receives a cup of hot porridge every day.

PAIBWOR

Paibwor is near Kitgum and one of the villages that Forgotten People's Projects supports. 

We met them in 2014 and have supported them since then by providing them with seeds and helping the nursery school with a monthly contribution that pays for 2 teachers and the cook.  We also make sure that every child at the school receives a cup of hot porridge every day.

Here is Doreen the school cook, very proud in her new apron.  At the moment they prepare the porridge on a fire outside. The goal is build a school kitchen, but first we need to build the toilets and finish the building.

And here is Sam, teaching the children in a partly finished classroom. There is one completed classroom, which is full of children.

Seeds for Development Putuke
PUTUKE

Paibwor is near Kitgum and one of the villages that Forgotten People's Projects supports. 

We are so excited because we have recently completed building a new nursery school.  It has taken more than 2 years to build but now the community has a brand new nursery school.  It is a beacon of hope in a community that has struggled so much.  We also support farmers with seeds and training and provide emergency support with medical expenses.

Here is the old school, which was destroyed every year because of wind, rain or fire.  And our brand new shiny nursery school with 4 classrooms, an office and a store.

Next we need to finish the toilets, build a kitchen and a house for the head teacher.
