WHAT ARE THE LATESTE INNOVATIONS AT URDT?

 URDT continues to focus on youth employability, women empowerment, sustainble livelihood development and systems change in the education and rual development sectors.

Since 2011, URDT scaled up both vertically and horizontally. It now has sufficent human capital at URDT, thanks to its African Rural University that produced its first researcher graduates in September 2011.

Early 2012, URDT deployed the ARU researcher graduates as Managers to establish 16 community driven development centres in Kibaale, Kakumero and Kagadi Districts; the so called ‘Epicentres’. In 2017, the Epicentre Managers worked in a Public Private Partnership arrangment with local government in 19 sub-counties.

In 2015, URDT established the pupil managed school farms project that operates in 20 schools in 3 districts. It aims to support schools to provide nutritious meals and teach pupils to become commerical farmers in the context of a nourishment economy.

In the same year URDT launched the Governance, Accountability, Participation and Performance (GAPP) programme to strengthening rural citizens’ participation in decision making process for good governance. As a result, rural communities got voice in the design of community driven development programmes by local governments.

 

In 2017, URDT made preparations for the tell, sell and treat project to erradicate cervic cancer amongst rural women. The project will be launched in 2018.

URDT will continue toenable the people of the Bunyoro Region to build their capacity and developing practical knowledge of creating space for change through consciousness and conscienceness raising, education, trainings, information sharing, mentoring and peer networks in both and methodological and programme domains

URDT plans to expand its education , rural livelihood and social justice programmes to the entire Bunyoro region.

The plans require a substantial new flow of resources. Please contact us to discuss how you or your organisation could support URDT.
