The Ministry of Local government, PDM secretariat and Bubu Distributors Limited have organized the inaugural PDM Expo 2024 in Mbale City at the Mbale Cricket grounds from 16th to 18th April 2024.

The PDM expo is part of the activities as the Parish Development Model celebrates its second anniversary since the Presidential launch on 26th February, 2022 by H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in Kibuku District.

According to Hon. Dennis Galabuzi Ssozi, the National Coordinator of the Parish Development Model, implementation is supposed to happen in 3 phases over the 5 years from 2021-2026. In the past 2 years, one phase has been completed and the second is already in progress.

“We have completed the establishment phase where we setup governance structures, capitalized SACCOs and organized people in groups, among others. Currently, we are at the stabilization phase where people are using their PRF, planning for storage of their produce and creating market linkages” Hon Galabuzi said.

He also added that the Expo is not a celebration of the achievements so far but a testimony that PDM, as a government poverty alleviation initiative, is working.

“At the Expo, those who will attend will have a chance to see the success stories of different PDM Beneficiaries across the country. They will see that PDM is beyond just the money, and that poverty is being fought across all spheres like health, education and governance” he noted.

The Deputy National Coordinator Hon. Jovrine Kaliisa, states that the two years have been a learning experience in combating challenges to ensure that PDM is delivered to the last Ugandan as intended by the Government.

“The two years have taught us how to fight corruption, slow service delivery and fraud, which have always hindered the good intentions of government to the Ugandans who voted it” she said.

She added that at the Expo, the leadership of PDM hopes to share more with the stakeholders present, to learn more on how to implement PDM better.

Over 10,000 beneficiaries, government officials, banks and all stakeholders in the PDM will be meeting for the very first time under one roof at the Expo.
