COOPERATIVES

Cooperatives are generally regarded as an engine for poverty reduction and employment creation through collective self-help participatory involvement in some or all aspects of Production, Processing and Marketing. Whereas Cooperatives were largely founded on cash crop basis, established by government such as Cotton in the Teso region, the collapse of the cash crop meant the collapse of the cooperatives. The principles of Cooperatives stand and is our quest to establish, Together We Stand, or Together Each Achieves More, (TEAM)

The current push for setting up Cooperatives from bottom up, self-mobilized firstly as farmer groups or merely Savings and Credit Community Organizations (SACCOs) is proving a challenge and therefore the formation tends to remain as money lending groups to say the least. This would still suffice if the groups could be deemed pre Coop setting up, in preparation for establishing the cooperatives either by region or product. This concept has worked well in Kenya as an example

Teso PEDO therefore in engaged in strategies and processes of these formations or indeed appraising those already formed, to ensure they will transit to Cooperatives, but firstly be functional and effective in Organisation, and this has been dubbed in our work to be Joint Production Groups (JPGs.)

CASHEW PROJECT

Cashew is now being fronted on a national Presidential directive for very strong reasons of income potential and climate mitigation adaptation for the arid and semi arid regions of the country. The planting is therefore being endorsed because the Cashew value chain is easily the current most demanded and is highly valueable in the market. Current production levels are not near enough, even for the foreseeable future. TESO PEDO is leading in promoting planting and the value chain development including the formation of the industry cooperative
