In February government of Uganda President Yoweri Museveni launched the Parish Development Model (PDM) at Kibuku Primary School, Kibuku District in Bukedi Sub-region.


The Parish Development Model (PDM) aims at helping people from the parish level to increase their household incomes and join the money economy.  


It is an extension of the-whole-of government approach to development as envisaged under the National Development Plan3, with the parish as the lowest administrative and operational hub for delivering services closer to the people and hence fostering economic development. 


It’s against this background that Resident District Commissioner Robert Adyama together with his Deputy Steven Odongo embarked on continuous sensitization of the useful youths in Alebtong District on social-economic transformation.


According to Adyama, the intention is to empower the youth with adequate knowledge on how to make the best use of government programs to develop them. He trains them in the area of financial management, developing business plans, and research.


Uganda is rich with Young men and women who are mostly jobless and need to find their potential and wealth.


Baptist Opua, one of the youths who attended the training said that the soft-spoken and intelligent RDC took the youth in a profound deep understanding of how to get out of poverty. This to him has never happened in Alebtong.


One youth identified as Yasin said that visionary leaders like Adyama should not be transferred from Alebtong.


“If I have the chance and right over the RDC’s appointing authority, I would just retain Alebtong RDC for life. He has opened our mindset and we are ready for development” he noted.
