In partnership with Teach a Man to Fish (TAMTF), several businesses have been developed that will be run by the school with the purposes of funding operational costs and moving toward 100% sustainability. The beekeeping business is one of seven businesses created out of the TAMTF initiative that COTN-Uganda hopes to establish over the coming months. Due to its low start-up costs, good market, high profitability, and relative ease of starting, beekeeping is a clear choice as one of the first businesses to establish.

COTN's Children’s Homes in Sierra Leone presently have one water well (hand pump) which the children and staff use for drinking, laundering, watering of the backyard garden, flushing toilets, and other domestic work.

Sierra Leone

For most children in rural Sierra Leone, farm work is seen as a means of punishment. The children only focus their attention on the labor that the discipline entails, forgetting about the knowledge, skills, and the income the grower gains to support their livelihood.

This project will create the awareness in the children that agriculture is a business that gives people the skills required to create income that makes them self-sufficient.

(UG) Secondary School Girls Water Project

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

With the addition of the secondary school, the water usage at COTN-Uganda has increased drastically and we need to begin exploring ways to use the rain water that falls during rainy season.

COTN-Uganda has seen the opportunity to add gutters and a water tank to collect rain water from the roof of the girls' dormitory. The water will run off of the roof into the gutters attached to the building. It will then be piped to a water tank (which will hold 30,000 liters or 7,925 gallons) that will be equipped with a tap for students and staff to come and use.
