- A total of 835 local goats and 36 exotic ones have been distributed to people with disabilities (PWD) to boost their income. The goats were distributed through the Community-based Rehabilitation Programme, a strategy for equal opportunity and social rehabilitation for the PWDs. Speaking at the handover recently, the community development officer for the elderly and disabled, Moses Moiza, said the programme would improve the quality of the local goats.
NAADS to get coordinators
- The National Agriculture Advisory Services (NAADS) will recruit coordinators at the sub-county level this financial year. The programme executive director, Silim Nandy, said the programme had failed to supervise the current coordinators because they are not their staff. He was addressing the district political leaders and the extension workers recently.
