To increase incomes and wealth for Ugandans through; value addition to local resources, human capital development, provision of unique services and marketing of the products. It aims to achieve One Village One Product production systems countrywide based on comparative advantage and economic use of resources.
The One Village One Product Program was introduced in Uganda in 2008 as an integrated community development approach with a vision to increase incomes and wealth for Ugandans through; value addition to local resources, human capital development and marketing of high value added products and services. The OVOP concept was designed as a community based approach through which local resources would be utilized to promote production, processing and marketing of both products and services. The implementation flow of the program involves identification of the model enterprises, physical assessment of the selected enterprises, awareness creation on the OVOP programme and then providing relevant interventions to address the identified challenges.
