EMMF: Making a Difference in Uganda

PROPOSAL

 

It should be both global in perspective and individual in its outreach.

 

1. A nursery school teacher living among the Pygmies who would be involved in preparing the Pygmies for primary school education.

2. A public health nurse, on site, addressing the health needs of these Pygmies, assisting with immunizations, and referring patients with more serious needs to appropriate facilities.

3. An agricultural advisor who would assist the Pygmies. The Pygmies have problems growing an adequate amount of agriculture to support themselves. They are not aware of some of the agricultural techniques that have been used in Uganda for centuries, since they were a hunter-gatherer society until fairly recently.

4. A clean, protected, and central water supply with a hand pump to improve hygiene and crop irrigation.

5. Procurement of more land to grow their crops.

6. On a more individual basis, the bishop has a primary school nearby, which he envisions to educate approximately sixty Pygmies per year. These Pygmies are very anxious to receive this quality education, which is spiritual, vocational, and academic in its scope.

 

COSTS

 

1. Preschool teacher, $70.00 per month per site.

2. Public health nurse, on site, $70.00 per month per site.

3. Agricultural consultant, $70.00 per month per site.

4. Central water supply, cost not assessed at this time.

5. Land acquisition, $35 per acre, additional 250 acres is desired.

6. The bishop’s primary school education. A cost of $535.00 per Pygmy per year, which includes board, tuition, and room.
