In February 2017, we are sending over a container through Africa Equip to our rural centre in Koro, though some of the items will be distributed to instigate activity at the Kireka centre and in Kampala.
If you would be prepared to support us by donating equipment for the container, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are particularly looking for:
- Athletics and gym equipment to develop our new Athletics club, which will be the first of its kind for youth in Uganda. Tae-kwondo equipment and other sports equipment, such as football kit and footballs, netballs, volleyballs and basketballs.
- Catering equipment to support the development of the Pioneer social enterprise cafe. This could include saucepans, gas stoves, food processors, cutlery and crockery, hot food display etc.
- ICT equipment. When the container is emptied, it will become a secure computer centre for rural children in Northern Uganda. We need computer desks, headsets, solar power batteries and panels, tablets and higher quality laptops with graphics and projectors.
- Board games. We use board games of all types, from simple to challenging, to develop the intellectual abilities of the children we work with. So anything from Junior Monopoly to Twilight Imperium welcomed.
- Musical instruments. We would like to start instrumental tuition at the Chrysalis Centre in Kampala. We are looking for keyboards, amplifiers, music stands, brass instruments, flutes.
- Art materials. Chrysalis has several very high standard artists amongst its youth and we need paints in particular to encourage them to practise their skills.
