Abstract

The CNA was conducted in in Serengeti village in Bunda district District to identify the problems and needs of paddy farmers. Considering the findings of CNA several problems facing them and the associated needs were identified. Of these expansion of irrigation scheme was conceived as the most pressing need and thus formed the basis of setting up a project entitled “Enhancing paddy productivity through improving the irrigation scheme. The objectives of this project included awareness creation to 120 farmers on the importance of expanding the infrastructure of the irrigation scheme, determining the costs for its expansion and mobilising resources and equipments from development partners. All the targeted 120 farmers attended the awareness creation training and acted as a catalyst in the implementation of the project. The budget for the project was also developed after identifying the needed equipment and facilities in its expansion which amounted to around 20M. The potential donors were also identified and Bunda district council took a lead in this contributing about 16M and the farmers themselves volunteered to work as labourers in the project, the contribution which was worth 4M. This ensured the completion of the project and the expansion of the production as planned.
