10th December 2021 BkB’s Agriculturist in his weekly report writes: This week’s training is a continuation of last week’s on natural resources and energy saving stoves. To construct the stove one has to mold ant-hill soil and mix it with dry chopped grass, fresh cow dung, sieved wood ash, water, potato veins and okra leaves so as to enhance the hardness of the mortar. The stoves have two or three cooking areas on top and one opening on the side where firewood is placed and lit.
29th November 2021 BkB’s Nutritionist after her weekly visit to Kasoozo:
A demonstration on 2 Income Generating food items was done. The food items were samosas and vegetable pies. The types made for the former are bean samosas and rice samosas and for the latter, cabbage pies and Irish potato pies.The two food items were balanced with major food nutrients as required by the body such as; carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. Thus apart from income generation the foods also improve the nutritious status of the consumers.
22nd November 2021 From BkB’s Agriculture Manager on his weekly visit to a small village, Nasoozo.
Farmers planted improved potatoes vein variety at the demonstration garden. The variety that is known as Naspot 13 is also locally known as kipapali. It is rich in vitamin A and proven to enhance eye sight. It’s demand is high because of its short maturity period of 3 months Beside being eaten as a tuber the potatoes can also be processed into powder form and consumed in form of porridge hence very good for our children….
