Lunch4Learning’s SHOP is different. Like most charity websites, shopping here is a virtual experience. Unlike many charity websites, Lunch4Learning will always provide you with as much information as possible of where your gift has gone. For donations of over £100/$175/€120, we will also send out a special certificate and a photograph of your gift in its specified location.
All prices quoted below are for £ Sterling, US Dollars and Euros as per rates on 20 February 2017.
|Adopt-a-School. We have a long list of schools wishing to join the programme. At present we are able to bring a school on board for a one-off donation £300.||
|Fruit trees. We are offering a range of mature fruit trees here (incl. apple, avocado, guava, mango, orange and pear), which can cost as little as £18 and would be relatively easy for schools to propagate.||
|100 seedlings. We are making available to schools a range of seed plants which will include maize, cassava and tomatoes.
The price for a kilo of maize seedlings (around 10 stems) is £0.55.
|Set of tools. This gift idea is composed of a hoe, a rake and a spade. A hoe costs £2 per unit to produce but £10 will give one school a full set of tools.||
|Wheelbarrows. An indispensable tool that allows work on the kitchen gardens to be carried out a lot quicker. Manufactured locally in Uganda, this item costs only£10.||
|Wells & bore holes. The cost of installing a 16-metre deep well is £4500 whilst a 17.5-metre bore hole and hand pump costs £5700 to install. (Photo courtesy of ‘Water Wells for Africa’)||
|Water harvesting systems. Catchment from rooftops is harvested and can then be used for agricultural uses and, in most cases, for drinking.
A truly sustainable gift costing £2000 for a system with a 5,000-litre tank. For the 10,000-litre tank system, the cost would be £3000.
|Egg production. This gift provides children with chicken rearing skills and eggs can be used to feed the children.
Day-old chicks cost as little as £0.40. The price for 50 chicks is a mere £20 whilst the chicken coop will cost an additional £75.
|Cooking pots. An indispensable gift that would last a lifetime.
A 50-litre stainless steel pot costs £140 whilst the bigger 70-litre pot costs £190.
|Plastic plates and cups. A single plate-and-cup set costs only £0.40 but we are requesting gifts for multiple sets. For large orders, we will be able to negotiate discounts for volume orders. 50 sets would cost as little as £20 – an absolute bargain!||
|Organic fertiliser. Not all Ugandan schools would need to fertilise their vegetable gardens but applying fertiliser to the soil would improve crop production immeasurably.
A 50 kg. bag of fertiliser will cost £35.
|Red Nose Gang toys. These lovely soft toys would make a wonderful gift for children of 18+ months.

|Beehives. For a school, keeping bees can develop into a small-scale business, generating income for the schools’ kitchens.£100 would purchase a complete kit for one school. This includes a large wooden hive, a nuclear colony of bees, a smoker and one set of protective clothing, essential when managing African bees.|
