The Bugabira Cow Project

April 16, 2012

CHEDRA has recently constructed a cow house (karaal) at Bugabira School. It is now home to Subi, our Frisian-cross cow who will soon give birth to her first calf and start producing milk for the school. This will be a valuable source of protein and calcium for the students (many of whom suffer from malnutrition) and will also be sold to fund free school places for needy children. Subi means ‘hope’ in Luganda. CHEDRA hopes that she will become mother to a healthy calf and be a productive, long-term member of the Bugabira School community.

Some of the funds raised through the Global Giving campaign went towards paying the outstanding balance for Subi. Thank you to everyone who donated – CHEDRA could not have completed this project without you.

Below are some photos of the karall construction process:
