Skip to comments.$3.5 Billion "Plan Uganda" Seeks to Cut Poverty in Half -- While Reducing 'Cattle Raiding,' Too
Posted on 05/18/2011 10:47:28 AM PDT by Steve Peacock
Cutting poverty by 50% in Uganda is one of the chief goals of the Obama Administration's 2011-2015 strategy for that African nation, which will receive $3.5 billion under the ambitious plan. Among other stated ambitions is a reduction in cattle-raiding and counter-cattle-raiding in one particularly conflict-prone region of the country.
The U.S. Agency for International Development today made available the foll0wing policy documents governing the program:
Description: The Country Development Cooperation Strategy 2011-2015 (CDCS) is USAID/Ugandas approved country strategy and will guide USAID programming over the strategy period. The CDCS demonstrates how a number of important USAID policy initiatives will be implemented in Uganda, such as aid effectiveness principles, strengthened monitoring and evaluation, and procurement reform, and other initiatives under USAID Forward. This document should provide useful context to those reviewing upcoming solicitations and assistance opportunities.

The Feed the Future Strategy for Uganda will guide programming for this initiative and should provide useful context to those reviewing upcoming solicitations and assistance opportunities.

yes, im sure the happy sunshine people will see a dime of that obama stash after their ‘dear leaders’ take their 98 percent cut...flushing it down the drain....
Oh yeah, that’ll work.
The Swiss banks where the funding for this will end up are carefully studying whether building new branches and hiring extra staff will be necessary.
Thank God our grandkids have all this extra cash...
African countries have done a fine job of crapping in their own plates for years. They’ve all said for years that they don’t appreciate “help” from the western countries so it is past the time to take them up on it. Let them thrive or die on their own.

I guess Barry's gonna charge it on his Gov'ment issued Visa Card?
This money is stolen from hard working Americans under the threat of violence... Why is so much flushed down these worthless turd world toilets?
