The Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Janat Mukwaya has asked leaders at all levels to form or join groups if they want to benefit from government programs.
Minister Mukwaya is in Kibaale district to monitor government-funded women and youth projects as part of her ongoing monitoring exercise in western region.
She made the call Saturday while meeting members of Mugarama united youth tree nursery bed project in Mugarama sub-county.
The group comprises of 12 members who are both civil servants and political leaders, which has contributed to its success, according to members.
The group chairperson, Tanansi Tumuhaise who doubles as the parish chief says though the group has just started, it is promising.
He says the group received six million, twenty four hundred seven thousands shillings (6,247,000) under youth livelihood.
The Project Manager Youth Livelihood, Happy James Tumwebaze thanked the group for being focused.
Basing on that, Mukwaya asked district leadership to encourage leaders to also embrace forming groups other than waiting for money on the silver plate from government.
