KAGADI: Hoima Caritas Development Organization (HoCADEO) has been hailed for establishing development projects that have improved food security and farmers’ livelihoods in Kagadi district.

According to the Kagadi district acting deputy chief administrative officer, Edward Bisangabasaija, hailed the organization has sensitized people about living in a healthy environment.

‘’The organization has sensitized the community on having bathrooms, latrines, drying racks, compost pits, and good farming practices, thereby enhancing development,’’ he said.

Bisangabasaija was today {Friday} addressing stakeholders and a few selected farmers as the organization was reviewing its activity implementations in the area since 2021.

HoCADEO is operating in eight sub-counties of Kagadi district that include Bwikara, Kyaterekera,Nyakarongo, Ruteete, Buhumuriro, Rugashali, Kakababadima, and Burora.

Bisangabasaija emphasized the need for people to have a positive mindset change if they are to adapt to sustainable agriculture.

The Kagadi district LCV chairperson, through his vice mayor, Mugisa Peter Sebugwaho, urged HoCADEO to maintain the indigenous crops in addition to the high-value crops that are being introduced but do not last as long.

He also requested that the organization think about extending its services from Buyaga West to Buyaga East Constituency so as to balance its developments in the whole district.

Reverend Father Xavier Magezi, the Executive Director of HoCADEO, says they decided to bring the program to Kagadi district so as to enable farmers to live a better life, have enough food, and have other sources of income.

He says they are facing challenges from climate change that negatively affect farmers’ harvests. Magezi therefore asked the district leadership to cooperate with HoCADEO to improve agriculture and advance farmers’ incomes.

A few selected farmers who attended the workshop have commended the organization for having trained them on sustainable agriculture, which has enabled them to have enough food and improved standards of living.
