Oxfam has been directly supporting 10 women’s groups, madeup of over 400 members, in Kotido and Kaabong districts of Uganda’s Karamoja sub-region since 2007. The Karamojongare an ethnic group of agro-pastoralists residing primarily in thenorth-east of Uganda. The evaluated interventions wereimplemented in two districts where two of the sevenKaramojong clans reside – Kotido district (home of the Jie) andKaabong district (home of the Dodoth).This context is an exceptionally challenging one, particularlyfrom a community development perspective. The Karamojasub-region has been plagued by chronic food insecurity for many decades, with food aid being distributed regularly andextensively throughout the sub-region since the 1960s. Thesecond major issue is related to security. Traditionally, theKaramojong have raided others (including each other’s clans)for cattle and, to a lesser extent, other types of livestock, apractice which continues to the present day.The support provided through the North KaramojaDevelopment Project and other complementary interventionsprimarily involved the construction and equipping of grainstorage and milling facilities for each of the 10 groups and theprovision of agricultural inputs and tools to their members. Thewomen were also targeted with animal husbandry training,where they, among other things, were encouraged to utilise theservices of animal health workers. Communal dams were alsoconstructed to increase access to water for livestock owned bythe members of the groups and the wider community.
