Operation Wealth Creation

Home WELFARE Operation Wealth Creation


In July 2013, H.E  the President launched Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) as an intervention aimed at efficiently facilitating national socio-economic transformation. Its focus was on raising household incomes and promoting wealth creation by transforming subsistence farmers into commercial farmers, with the ultimate goal of ending poverty. The launch followed the successful implementation and tangible outcomes of a pilot program that supported Civilian-Veterans in the “Luwero-Rwenzori Triangle”.

Main Objectives

The objectives of the program are aimed at promoting commercial agriculture among the masses, with a focus on boosting household incomes. This involves the equitable and timely distribution of production inputs to enhance productivity. The program also seeks to facilitate rural technological upgrading to enable smallholder farmers to become small-scale industrialists.
Additionally, the program aims to stimulate local and community enterprise development across the country, and facilitate infrastructure development in rural areas. Ultimately, the program seeks to empower the 68% of the population that is outside the money economy.

Operation Wealth Creation Archievements

The program has created debate on service delivery approaches including use of the private sector in the agricultural sector development. The arguments are constructive and better results are expected in the near future.
Operation Wealth Creation has also identified the existing gaps for instance inadequate policy framework and regulation in the sector which will help to provide targeted interventions in agriculture.
OWC program has increased interaction between government and the people; 6.2 million Ugandans have responded to OWC and are eager to participate. Many make requests for inputs and value addition equipment which are inadequate in quantities.
Together with NAADS, OWC has embarked on mobilizing stakeholders in the sector to build value chain platforms e.g. The fruit sector platform, the coffee sector platform and organic farmer’s platform etc. Such platforms have improved farmers bargaining power, knowledge, market search and also strengthened their voice in demanding and accessing for better services.
OWC has facilitated and participated in progressive debates in the agriculture sector towards increased productivity and growth. In collaboration with partners and universities, OWC has engaged in a number of studies whose findings can contribute to policy.
