Wheels Of Hope Project

Comments

I would like to take a moment to give an update on the community in Uganda that we support known as The Wheels of Hope Project.

Through beehive harvest theft and poor crop harvest, the project phase 1 & phase 2 have been paid for and all that is remaining is our inspection fees and the construction of the building itself.

Several weeks ago...
The story below recounts what the orphanage and children have had to go through without the basic need of plumbing over the last several months. We as a community and foundation have gone on a mission to help provide them with the funds for a new public latrine. This way the children and adults don't have to worry about things like dysentery.

Could you imagine not having plumbing, each day? Please, help the children and donate today. All of your donation makes it to their bank account for this project. RadioCave takes no profit from these transactions. www.radiocave.org/wheels-of-hope.

I'm happy to say we have raised nearly $500 and have only $77 dollars left to complete this stage of construction. The next and final phase will be stated by Ivan still upon completion of this phase. The 70 foot bore hole has been dug and the brick, sand, pebble and partial labor has been paid for with a remaining inspection fee left. You can read below through the dated exerts and pictures I have placed together from Ivan directly for this post.

As a week 3 update to the Latrine for the Wheels of Hope Orphanage:
We have included new pictures and descriptions as well as prices and information on what's needed next. Please understand community we are counting on you to help the children and since 2018 they have relied on us when it comes to matters of their existence and health.

Earlier in the week the Wheels of Hope Orphanage has someone harvest and steal over $300 worth of the natural honey from their community hives. This not only sustains the children via food but also supplies them with some financial substitution when needed. The people responsible have been caught and thankfully the hives were not destroyed, simply robbed of the summer harvest thus far. 🙁
We want you to know these are the types of situations the children are struggling through while not having a community toilet or latrine at the moment. (Picture of thief in jail awaiting transfer in post)

Much like when they were drinking malaria endangered mosquito filled water, we supplied fresh potable water and now they need a public facility to use the restroom.

Ivan still has about $35 left to pay the men who dug the hole and has already purchased some of the gravel for the pit as you can see in the pictures with the bags. (COMPLETED PHASE 1)

From 2020:
"I'm Rukundo Ivan, the founder of "Wheels Of Hope Project (established 2017) based in Rukuba Masha Isingiro village in Mbarara district of Uganda.

I'm married to Niwagaba Juliet who is my co director. We are both teachers who are trying to raise consciousness and resources for our impoverished village and orphaned child inhabitants.

Most orphan parents died of HIV/AIDS, typhoid & diseases like dysentery (due to standing dirty water shared with animals as only water supply & lack of hygiene) also murder, drug overdose or self-neglect.

There are many more things my wife and I are doing for our village, but our vital water of life must come now with your help. When grandparents taking care of these children fall ill or cannot even secure basic needs of living, this is where Wheels of Hope comes to help.

Some of the older children (avoiding street gang and crime life) come to us and help build our wooden wheelbarrows, plant foods and harvest to deliver and sell to villagers. Some young mothers use our wheelbarrows to transport children and their hand-made items and produce to market for sale. They are learning farming and we are creating ways of becoming a self-sustaining village. The younger children are making sandals and learning the traditional ways of their ancestors in the sandal construction.

Our greatest immediate challenge (among the many) now is to access clean water. This is mostly a dry area where the valley dams dry up and sit with pestilence-riddled water. The government knows we suffer during dry season to get water as water is life.
Our project and associated costs is 150 meters of distance to lay and connect pipe for clean water access. We have worked with Nicholas S Seigel (RadioCave founder) and Penfield Hondros to estimate U.S. dollar project costs converting from our Ugandan shillings. "

From RadioCave:
Later that year,
In 2020 the last half of 2020, the 1st year of covid we came together as a family and generated over $500 to run potable water to their village when they were using gasoline jugs and walking football fields each day simply to fill and reuse them.

From Today 6/29/2022
Do you know that we still to this day send donations almost weekly to support our orphanage & village in Uganda? Donations received as a gift on our website upon clearing processing, get transferred directly to Ivan and we take no portion of any transactions, nor have we ever. We have worked to help them take care of the children with food and various health supplies like masks, soap and much more over the years.

We come to you today as an update on our village in Uganda that calls "RadioCave" home. It warms my heart to know we are helping them, and I fully intend to visit and see the children we have helped before my life ends; and am grateful to have this capability and it is because of our community that saving lives just like this is possible.

After finishing the 70foot hole we need to dig, the next step in the project is to construct the concrete around it to prevent injury immediately as any injuries would be our fault.
If you can find it in your heart, please donate and help pay the remaining $228 to finish digging the hole.
WE would be very grateful, and I can tell you that Ivan, his wife and the children desperately need this currently.
(COMPLETED PHASE 2 PAYMENT)

8/15/2022 $77 left for inspection fees and phase 3 the building structure still to come.

This is why I love my job and my community.

Recently they have come to a great source of disease by needing a new latrine "toilet & natural decompose pit" for the orphanage. Without having basic essentials like a toilet, dysentery and a whole host of other viruses, diseases and germs come about endangering human life. This is the last thing we want to have happen when we all have helped so much over the years. All the individual donations are listed on our website for previous years and there's a host of photos here to show the children and the new hole they are digging in preparation of the new latrine.

After finishing the 70foot hole we need to dig, the next step in the project is to construct the concrete around it to prevent injury immediately as any injuries would be our fault.

If you can find it in your heart, please donate and help pay the remaining $228 to finish digging the hole.

In order to be sustainable in our programs we encourage food security by now having early planting in order to have food for the children.
This will help to save and plan for more development at our project as we continue to finish the latrin.

Sometimes we make mistakes but I want to appreciate all of you who looked into the issue of sending back children even if we had the latrine we are still constructing but scholastic materials were essential .
We distributed them and now children yesterday reported back to school.
It gives us great pleasure as it's one of the rights to children.
I know we are back on finishing latrin so don't think otherwise
