I welcome you to the Website of Alebtong District Local Government.
As head of Alebtong District local Goverment and Accounting Officer, I take the honor to highlight on the following issues; Local revenue enhancement, progress of the implementation of Third Phase NAADS/OWC programme, PRDP, YLP and others programes in the district.
As you are all aware, Alebtong District Local Government is one of the best districts in local revenue collection, As a result, the district revenue tremendously shrunk, which to some extent affected the implementation of some of the district’s programmes.
First, the district leadership has devised means of enhancing local revenue collection to push ahead the implementation of district programmes.
Consultations were done with different district stakeholders, and a Revenue Enhancement Plan was put in place. In this plan, strategies for revenue enhancement are highlighted.
The district appreciates continued government’s efforts to support Alebtong district local government, financially and materially through Graduated Tax compensation and other grants.
The broad objectives of the revenue enhancement plan are;
I look forward to working with all the district stakeholders, to ensure the fulfillment of the above objectives for the good of our district.
Secondly, on the progress of the implementation of OWC Phase Two in the district, the programme is progressing well.
This phase seeks among others to promote Food Security, Nutrition and House hold income at household level. I therefore appeal to every adult of 18 years and above to join NAADS/OWC Farmer groups for your own, as well as collective benefit.
The above mentioned to be implemented, one needs to have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Allow me to remind you that, HIV/AIDS epidemic is still a killer disease. It has caused a devastating impact on Uganda, Alebtong inclusive. The deadly disease has significantly lowered the life expectancy, and reduced the country’s labour force. It has also affected our Agricultural output, threatening food security, weakened educational and Health services and left behind a million orphaned children among others.
According to the new statistics, the deadly epidemic disease burden has of recent reached 8.31 percent in Alebtong district.
I appeal to you to access HIV Testing and Counseling Services at your disposal in all the health units of the district. ACT NOW TO SAVE YOUR LIFE AND KEEP ALEBTONG SHINNING.
