In a bid to review the program’s endeavors, procedures and societal impact, Agriculture Sector Development Support Program Phase II (ASDSP II) has today ended a week long Social Audit Process across the County.
Targeting service providers and value chain actors, the exercise was evaluating the relevance of training to clients’ needs, resource utilization and opportunities utilization. All these are expected to help maintain a delicate balance between them and the public and also provide satisfactory value to investors and shareholders.
An independent team drawn from the private sector and various officers from the three Directorates of crops, Fisheries and Livestock has general expectations that actors in the three value chains (Fish, Mango and Indigenous Chicken) are now able to manage their enterprises much better, have business plans and are even able to put up proposals for potential partnerships.
Speaking during a visit to Nyapoto Youth Group in Kadenge, Central Alego Ward, Mr. Fred Adede the Chairperson for Indigenous Chicken Value chain platform stated that Actors have been linked to various partners like Heifer International and Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Projects who are working in handy to supplement ASDSP II activities. He was optimistic that the final report will indeed be pleasant and that actors’ needs will continue to be met as the program continues to traverse the grass roots.
