CHAPTER 1

1.0 Introduction

1.1 BUVAD_2000 background

Butakoola Village Association for Development (BUVAD_2000) is a registered not

for profit but for community service organization registered under the Gender and

Culture Department of Kayunga District as a Community Based Organization(CBO) operational in Kayunga Sub County.

BUVAD_2000 was founded in the year 2000 as an initiative of a few concerned

local youths who, upon realizing the challenges that their community alwaysfaced, undertook numerous sensitizations by the central government and were

prompted to set up an association. The basis of this association was to

collectively address the community and its needs for a better life.

The association struggled to realize intended goals, but oversaw successfulactivities like brick making for income generation, communal sensitization

workshops on poverty eradication, and group farming for youths.

Due to the inability to fundraise and further these initiatives, the association lost

track and strength. In 2006 one of the initial members of the association and a

son of the area, Mr. Ssemutumba Stephen managed to secure volunteer technicalsupport from a international volunteer from the UK. A new board to run the

association was appointed in the same year 2006 and soon all the administrative

structures and documentations were in place. BUVAD_2000 was registered with

the Gender and Culture Department and started with a stronger background tocarry out its operations. Since then, BUVAD_2000 has carried out its activities

based on volunteer support of staff from various local and international sources

based in and outside of Uganda.

Butakoola Village, the case study area of this baseline survey and origin of

BUVAD_2000, is typical of rural areas of Kayunga Sub County. It is located inBukolooto Parish, Kayunga Sub County in the Kayunga District of Uganda Eastern
