ABSTRACT

Introduction: Community Driven Development Funds(CDDF) are resources given to local governments by central government and other development partners to support community based groups to implement livelihood projects to improve household incomes and economic welfare of families. The community based groups are formed by women, youth and any other persons, registered and trained by local governments’ community development experts to build their capacity to implement and manage CDDF supported projects to eliminate poverty in their homes and communities. The Local governments and development partners’ community development experts and other leaders play a monitoring and supervisory role to oversee the implementation of CDDF supported projects in communities to achieve improved livelihoods and economic outcomes in families. Methodology: A cross sectional study design was used among CDDF supported groups of women and youth in Kawempe Division, Kampala District employing both quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection. 99 respondents from 21 youth and women groups were interviewed, simple random sampling was the method used, semi structured interviewer administered questionnaire were used for data collection. Results: Majority of the respondents 80 %( 79/99) were females and 68 %( 67/99) respondents were youth respectively. Majority of respondents had attained primary level of education at 42.4 %. Also (100 %( 99/99) were knowledgeable about CDD Funds accessibility requirements, however 80 %( 79/99) of the responds faced challenges to fulfill requirements for getting CDD funding. Majority 39.4% (39/99) respondents had attained primary level of education and lowest number had attained vocational skills at 3 %( 3/99) and university level at 2 %( 2/99) respectively among CDD funds beneficiary groups in Kawempe Division. Conclusion: Knowledge about requirements for accessing CDD funds was very high among respondents at 100 %( 99/99). However 80 % of the respondents faced challenges to meet requirements to receive adequate funding for their planned projects. Vocational and university levels of education were very low among respondents at 3% and 2% respectively. Recommendations: Kawempe Division Management should prioritize capacity building of CDD fund beneficiary groups to empower them in Functional Adult Literacy training and project focused trainings to improve on projects management and successful implementation to realize intended livelihood and household economic out comes sustainably among community groups. Researchers should do more research in barriers and enhancers of CDD funded projects success in urban areas.
