ZAIDI APP: ISO trains Rukungiri and Kanungu GISOs on data capture of PDM beneficiaries


The Internal Security Organization, ISO yesterday Sunday trained all Gombolola Internal Security Officers, GISOs from districts of Rukungiri and Kanungu on data capture exercise of the Parish Development Model, PDM beneficiaries using the Zaidi App.

The training was launched by the Rukungiri Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Nsubuga Bewayo Stephen held at Rukungiri district headquarters.

The initiative is focused on operationalizing the ZAIDI PDM application, a tool created by the Internal Security Organization to streamline data capture for the PDM program while also monitoring other government programs, according to Major Edmond Turyatunga, the Director for Media in ISO and the team leader.

Speaking at the training, RDC Bewayo expressed gratitude to the Ugandan government through ISO for setting up the PDM data capture exercise training for the GISOs, as it will make their jobs easier.

According to RDC, the ZAIDI application would make it easier to expedite the implementation of PDM and other government initiatives aimed at rescuing Uganda’s rural populace from poverty.

Bewayo continued by urging participants to adopt a new perspective and believe that the PDM program will benefit and succeed, as this will aid in persuading the populace.

Challenges like funds being diverted from their original enterprise purposes would be addressed with the new data capture system of the recipients, according to Mr. Geofrey Kyomukama, the chairperson of LC5 Rukungiri district.

Kyomukama said that empowerment via knowledge translates into authority, enabling GISOs to confront PDM in their particular domains and establish them as thought leaders.
