Development Partners Provide Equipment to Boost SAGE Implementation

The Foreign Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) and Irish have delivered vehicles, motorcycles, computers and accessories to support the implementation of social protection interventions under the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development. The Development Partners have supported the SAGE since inception in 2010, when the Programme was piloted in 15 districts namely; Amudat, Apac, Kaberamaido, Katakwi, Kiboga, Kole, Kyankwanzi, Kyegegwa, Kyenjojo, Moroto, Nakapiripirit, Napak, Nebbi, Yumbe and Zombo. The Programme has since evolved and now covers all districts across the country, benefiting over 304,555 older persons who receive Ug.Shs25,000 per month, to mitigate various forms of vulnerability.
