  • ii Karamoja Livelihoods Programme

    T he good news is that the people of Karamoja, although mainly cattle keepers, are as well enthusiastic farmers of sorghum, maize and pearl millet when the weather is right. With peace and security assured, many farmers of Karamoja have had the confidence to move away from the large manyattas, which had Uganda Peoples Defence Force (UPDF) protection, to smaller villages where cropping can be intensified and animals taken to new grazing areas.

    KALIP was designed to make a difference, and it did! After its four years of implementation there is hardly a corner of the region where its influence has not been felt. We estimate that KALIP had a direct impact on at least 20% of the population of Karamoja.

    KALIP was implemented within my Ministry

    the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) - and the day to day management was handled by a dedicated OPM staff team making up the Programme Management Unit (PMU) under the able supervision of the Permanet Secretary Mrs Christine Guwatudde Kintu.

    I am fortunate to have an extremely committed and knowledgeable Minister to lead the OPM actions in Karamoja, Hon Janet Museveni, and she has reported to me that she has been very happy with KALIP, with clear results being seen on the ground and lasting outcomes already starting to have an impact.

    KALIP was driven by good national policies and responded to the livelihood needs presented by community members. Water for livestock, roads to markets, stores for grains, training of farmers,

    treatment of livestock, infrastructure development and community policing were all part of KALIP.

    Indeed, we have done a lot in 4 years and I thank all the partners with whom we have worked. Together with all my colleagues in OPM, I am committed to continue, and complete, the excellent work that KALIP has established. The stories contained within this book speak for themselves and are a testimony to the impact KALIP has had in Karamoja. Enjoy the read.

    Rt Hon Ruhakana RugundaPrime Minister

    Karamoja has changed. After the successful disarmament in 2007-2009, the Government of Uganda (GoU) recognised that Karamoja was ready for the great leap forward. Together with the European Union it developed the 15 million (51 billion shillings) Karamoja Livelihoods Programme (KALIP). KALIP sought to support the process of uplifting the livelihoods of the people of Karamoja. This is not an easy task. Karamoja, although not a desert, is prone to scarce, scattered and erratic rainfall; and unstable soils that are easily washed away. Karamoja also lacked the dense network of government offices, staff and services that we take for granted in other regions. There is a lot to do in Karamoja before it is indeed on a par with the rest of Uganda.

    A word from the Minister

    When I was appointed to serve as a Minister for Karamoja Affairs in 2009, many people considered Karamoja as a wild, unproductive and dangerous place. However I personally believed that the Karimojong are no different from any other

    people in Uganda and that Karamoja has the same desire for peace and prosperity

    like any other part of Uganda. I also knew that Karamoja is endowed

    with fertile soils and good weather and that it can

    largely feed itself instead of depending on relief

    handouts and humanitarian

    aid.

    Now, 5 years later, I have been proven right. Karamoja is on the move. The violence has stopped and the Karimojong are eagerly embracing the peace and security that was brought about by disarmament and dialogue. People are now growing their own food to feed their families and sell for income, taking care of their livestock, sending their children to school, and are looking for ways and means to push ahead in life.

    The development we see today is the result of strategies and investments by the government and its development partners on household food security, social service provision, and the rule of law. But more importantly, it is the result of the hard work of the Karimojong themselves, who have become the drivers of their own development.

    The Karamoja Livelihoods Programme (KALIP) is one of the government

    interventions which made a difference in Karamoja. KALIP interventions

    addressed four critical areas. It assisted farmers with farm

    tools and knowledge to grow

    crops and improve livestock; built productive infrastructure to support farming; strengthened the local government to deliver advisory services to farmers and supported peace and security. I am pleased to note that the funds from the European Union have resulted in clear outputs that are visible for everyone in every part of Karamoja.

    I am proud of the achievements of KALIP. In four years, KALIP has become a good friend to many people in Karamoja. There are many positive stories about what KALIP has done. KALIP has shown that with the help of a cooperative development partner, we can together achieve good results in a short time. I thank the European Union, the hardworking and dedicated team and above all, the people of Karamoja for bringing this positive change.
