The Kabale District LCV Chairperson, Nelson Nshangabasheija, has commended government for being calculative, while drafting the Parish Development Model-PDM program, under 7pillars, saying that this will help to bridge development gaps that other government programs, have been leaving out.
Nshangabasheija was today speaking at Butanda and Kahungye Sub county headquarters respectively, during the start of sub county stakeholders’ sensitisation meetings on Parish Development Model-PDM program in the District.
The PDM, is implemented under seven Pillars, namely: Agricultural Value-Chain Development (Production, Storage, Processing and Marketing), Infrastructure and Economic Services, Financial Inclusion, and Social Services. Others are, Community Mobilisation and Mind-set change, Parish-Based Management Information System and Governance and Administration.
Now, Nshangabasheija observes that these implementation pillars, will help the program to thrive and achieve its intended purpose, since the program, the Parish will be the lowest administrative and operational hub/epi-centre for planning, budgeting, reporting and delivery of interventions by both the State and Non-State Actors.
Nshangabasheija implored the public especially the 39percent subsistence poor to embrace the PDM program, if they are to fight against poverty in their homes.
