Performance

12 Planning meetings with all relevant stakeholders were carried out to plan and budget for the NAADS funds. 20 sensitization meetings were conducted in the 4 divisions of Makindye, Nakawa, Lubaga and Kawempe of Kampala to create awareness about the NAADS program, provide guidelines for participation and identify beneficiaries for FY2015/16. The meetings were attended by 3,343 farmers that expressed interest in being supported by NAADS. Of which 64%were female and 36% male while 34% of the totals were youth between 18 to 35 years. Our target was to reach at least 3,700 people (50 per parish) and we did not meet the target since some farmers resorted to operation wealth creation. NAADS farmersí forum, Area councilors, Local council leadership, Representatives from the DISO, RCC, police and prisons departments were among the stakeholders who attended. Out of the 3,343 people who attended the community sensitization workshops; 1,112 applicants were identified to receive inputs under the NAADS program for FY 2014/15. Of these, 58% were female and 42%male while the youth representation was 24% and 10% PWD. Identification of prospective beneficiaries was done within individual parishes to allow residents to select farmers among themselves. This was done by voting (open or secret ballot) therefore was transparent, free and fair. Each parish was required to present 15 applicants ensuring that special interest groups like PWDs, youth and the elderly were considered. PWD participation increased from 5% to 10% this year. A verification exercise was carried out for the selected 775 farmers in Nakawa, Makindye and Lubaga divisions to ensure that all applicants were residents of Kampala, had a farming unit and that their premises were suitable for the enterprise selected. A standard verification tool is used to aid this process. The verification team comprised of the NAADS farmersí forum, representatives from the DISO, RCC, Area councilors and technical staff for transparency. Out of the 1,112 applicants, the team managed to individually visit 775 farmers while 270 people from Kawempe division will be verified in the third quarter. 546 applicants were successful and therefore approved to receive NAADS inputs; which was below our target. Farmers who had already received inputs from the NAADs, YLP and CDD were also disqualified. Of the 523 poultry beneficiaries trained; 502 beneficiaries (58% Female; 42% Male; Youth 24%; PWDs 10%) received inputs under the poultry enterprise. 21 poultry farmers in Makindye have not yet received inputs. Inputs included:- 69,350 broiler, 5,040 layer , 2,315 Kuroiler chicks, 140,490 Kg of poultry feeds, 490Kg pig feeds and 150Kg Poultry growth booster. Farmers who received NAADS inputs in FY 2013/14 to FY 2015/16 were visited to assess their progress and to provide technical support. 154 NAADS beneficiaries from FY2013/14 to FY2015/16 were visited in all divisions. 90% of those visited were poultry farmers, 6% piggery and 4% value addition. 117(76%) of the poultry farmers were found to have sold & re-stocked or booked for new stock. 6 young boars of Landrace and Large white breed lines were purchased and imported from Kenya to replace the breeding stock lost in the previous outbreak of African swine fever. Prior to this, they were inspected in Nairobi before shipment to Uganda for conformity to the required breeding standards. 10,200 day old Kuroiler chicks were procured, collected from NAGRC Entebbe and delivered to the center. These are brooded for 3 weeks and then sold to the community. 23 farmers from 3 CDD groups that received Kuroilers 4 weeks ago were visited to monitor their progress. 91% of them were female and 9% male. The groups included:- Jinja road police wives Development Association (10), Kamwokya Envirocare (10) and Kamwokya Twezimbe (3) The groups were monitored and given technical support when the Kuroilers were 10 weeks old and on average weighed at least 1.5 Kg live weight. The farmers are largely feeding them on kitchen leftovers, green leafy vegetables, fruits as well as supplementing them with commercial poultry feed. Hydroponic fodder productions from Barley seeds are currently on-going at Kyanja with some progress realized. Currently, the germination percentage is at 80% within 6 days with 1.5Kg of barley grain producing 5.5Kg of Hydroponic fodder in 6 days which is an improvement from 3.4 Kg on average before structural changes. This is still low since 1Kg of barley seed should yield 6-10Kg of fodder according to available literature. All the fodder produced is fed to the Kuroilers and a few pigs with good uptake but itís too soon for comparative studies. 20 Kg of barley grain are processed per day producing 50 Kg of Hydroponic fodder per day. Production is still low. More research is still on-going. 50,000 day old layer chicks and poultry feeds were distributed to 25 authority councilors under the special presidential pledge in the NAADS secretariat. Each beneficiary received 2,000 birds along with 100,000Kg of feeds Activities were executed as planned
