Karamoja Livelihoods Programme (KALIP)

CPAR Uganda implemented KALIP in consortium with DCA and two other DCA partners during a 20-months period – 1st May 2012 to 30th December 2013. CPAR Uganda’s KALIP benefited an estimated 36,000 members of 4,500 agro-pastoralist households in Nakapiripirit and Amudat Districts in Karamoja in North-Eastern Region. The beneficiaries received training on group dynamics and various topics on crop agronomy – from selection of gardens and enterprises through post harvest handling to consumption.

Through CPAR Uganda, KALIP provided land opening services – opening 912 acres of land. Utilising funding from KALIP CPAR Uganda provided beneficiaries with well sourced seeds, farm implements and other inputs, which enabled the beneficiaries to increase their agricultural production.

An analysis of 1,770 kilograms of maize that the participating households planted on a sample of 292 acres of land indicates that they harvested 110,000 kilograms; meaning that they realised a multiplication ratio of over 1:62. Similarly, of 2,400 kilograms of groundnuts that the beneficiaries planted on 58 acres they harvested 8,016 kilograms; meaning that they realised a multiplication ratio of over 1:3. And of 1,892 kilograms of sorghum that they planted on 124 acres they harvested 5,925 kilograms; meaning that they realised a multiplication ratio of over 1:3. Utilising funding from KALIP CPAR Uganda also procured and distributed 15,275 tree seedlings – enabling the beneficiaries to establish woodlots, group orchards and individual plantations. The knowledge and advice that CPAR Uganda field staff gave to participating agro-pastoralists on village saving and loaning association (VSLA) methodologies were effective. By the official end of KALIP, in December 2013, 53 percent of the participating groups had established a VSLA in which their respective members were actively making savings deposits and from which they were accessing loans.

The KALIP was funded by the European Union (EU) and the Government of Uganda (GoU) through DanChurchAid (DCA).
