NAADS is working with Operation Wealth Creation to transform the lives of Ugandans through improved Agricultural production

OWC is an initiative by H.E the President of the Republic ofUganda aimed at engaging the UPDF inimproving household incomes by providing support in the coordination of NAADSactivities at community level. This was in recognition of the role of the UPDFin spearheading the liberation struggle. As a result therefore, the NAADS staffin District Local Governments were relieved of their duties to pave way for asingle spine mode of extension approach to be implemented directly under theMinistry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF). Effectiveimplementation of this new initiative requires an integrated approach that involvesthe traditional civil servants as technocrats, political, religious andcultural leaders to provide a platform for transforming the traditional mindset of population.

OWC Initiative is being implementedunder various Ministries and Agencies. However the Agriculture component of providing inputs/technologies to farmers at national level is being managed byOWC under the office of the President and NAADS under MAAIF. OWC has a wellorganized structure that provides for the overall Coordinator at nationallevel, the headquarter staff based at Bwebaja on Entebbe road, Liaison Officersbased in selected Ministries like MAAIF, MOFPED and Agencies like NAADS, NARO,REA, and UNFFE among others, the Regional Coordinators for all the 18 OWC zonesand Constituency Coordinators for all the 230 Constituencies countrywide.
