Mobile phones Uganda

A useful video for showing how technologies are being used to aid development in Africa and a good starter for discussions about the perceptions of Africans and the uses of new technologies. In the video interview, Send a Cow rural farmers Jane & Helen explain how they use their mobile phones to organise meetings, share agricultural information via SMS, interact with radio programmes and take bookings for training. They are part of a group that has been trained by the charity in sustainable agriculture. As they say, they pass on their skills and knowledge to others in the community, and increasingly use mobiles informally to do this.

Re-using plastic bottles

Lorna from Uganda shows how they re-use plastic drinks bottles on their small rural farm in Kumi. From solar lights to drip irrigation, the bottles make themselves very useful in all aspects of life. Use of locally available resources is one of Send a Cow’s principles as it creates uses out of things that are often seen as waste. Watch the video (or use the Powerpoint below) with your class and why not have a design competition for the most ingenious uses for bottles. Then send them in to us using the conatct page.

Sorry but you'll need to download the videos separately as they are too large to include in the bundle
