From chat with Andrius on August 25, 2009: My project is 410kms from kampala in Mbale. yes I do talk to fred often. we are close to him in terms of talking to each other. is teh map of bunabumali on earth satelite how we can get self help project to suppport the project of children like how to raise funds to make clinics for children ecoz now as l have lost my beloved Boy GEorge if l had treatemnt near teh project he might have not died. Yes that why l have love for teh children who lost their parents. my request is to help me offer them three things:
He dedicated himself to building and equipping a school for the needy and orphans in Bunabumali village, Buwali Parish, Bubiita sub-county, Manjiya County, in southeast Uganda. A member of the Amugishu tribe, he resides in Kampala.
The place is called "Good Samaritan Orphan & Needy School, where children live and study. One, a 14-year-old girl, died the other day of AIDS complications. Many there lost their parents in torrential landslides in 2004. That year the village launched the school project.
A Makerere University graduate and a teacher since 2001, Nakhokho believes he must give back to his community. He has secured NGO status for the school, he's lining up a website and if he can get the money, a company will provide the school with a handful of computers.
The needs are far more basic than that, however. Food is scarce, even with three growing seasons. Garden seeds are expensive.
l believe in sincere and I believe in the mission
Can this be of forum be of help to uganda also??

Fri, 15 Feb 2008 20:43:29 UTC Norman: Dear friends,
Here is the story filled by the Bamasaba community of Mbale but staying in New York l hope you will enjoy the site and find it interesting.
Mbale is bordered by the Republic of Kenya in the East, Tororo District in the West, Kumi district in North West, and Kapchorwa district in North East. Mbale district has an area of 2756 sq. km land area of 2504 sq. km and then land covered by 5300 hectares of forest.
The area receives two seasons of rainfall i.e. March-May and July -October. The community is located 40 km East of Mbale town while in Mbale town you board vehicles of Bududa (taxis) and you get out from Bubiita Sub County and then ask for good Samaritan orphan/needy school.
The community lies on the slopes of Mt. Elgon in Bunabumali village, Buwali parish, Bubiita Sub County, Manjiya county, Mbale district but currently Bududa district.
The district is highly blessed with a number of tourist attractions i.e. beautiful sceneries, bamboo forests, water falls, foothills, rocks, climate, giant Afro-alpine groundsels and lobelias, plenty of food stuffs, and vegetables, elgon fish(bamboos-malewa), caves, circumcision ceremony during even years and the nearby Sabiny who circumcise both female and male and this occasion attracts very many people from outside countries.
Mt Elgon national park which inhabits different species of flowers and wild animals (Eco systems) this has lead to tourist to come to Mbale year after year, season after season.
The community is well served with good social services for example roads all the way from Kampala to the community premises. The communication network is strong and security is provided at all times despite some ups and downs as Uganda being a third world country
The transport fares keep on varying i.e. Kampala to Mbale town: Ug shs 8000 to 15000 and then from Mbale town to Bubiita sub county :1500 to 3000 the district has good schools for both primary and secondary but a bit expensive for the orphans/needy children to access/manage. The location of where the school is located can also easily be assessed

Thu, 22 May 2008 00:18:03 UTC Norman: Bunabumali Village is one of the most unique communities I have ever experienced. Houses are peppered on steep slopes connected by foot paths. There are no power lines and no cars. Mount Elgon high above catches clouds and rain comes and goes—- down pouring, then sunny minutes later. Banana trees and coffee bushes grow everywhere… as do children.
There are lots and lots of children. Norman’s family, which has 8 children of their own, adopted 10 kids— two homeless due to AIDS, and 8 that lost their parents in landslides. From 1997 to 2004… 1000 people have died from landslides.
I arrived at the school last week to a chorus of children singing and clapping to welcome me. Three days later, I was sitting next to the dead body of one of those kids, Doreen, age 10, the last of three siblings to die from AIDS, leaving her mother weeping with us beside Doreen on the bed.
I have been at this computer for nearly two and a half hours and it has yet to let me upload a photo, due to being slow, so we’ll work on it tomorrow. I have lots to share. It was one of the most amazing weeks of my life. The place was beautiful… the people.. the mountains… everything. The project was a complete success. Yesterday, we made 21 hammocks.
We have recorded many people in the village on video sharing their needs and requests to invite more visitors to come with their talents. Everyone in the village was grateful to have me there and I always felt safe. I was gifted three chickens and countless bananas, passion fruits, tomatoes, avocados, papayas, etc.
They said I am the first non-African to stay in the village over-night. Everywhere I went, all eyes were on me, which was a problem at a track and field event, because I was taking attention away from what was going on, so I hid-out in the government hall. Donatons are warmly and gratefully accepted here: Western Union, MoneyBookers, TNT , Fedex.com, etc. send the donations to
