Teso Enterprise Consulting and Marketing Association (TECOMA) is a non-profit, non-political and non-sectarian development organization dedicated to working with men, women, youth and children among the rural households to enhance the improvement of their socioeconomic livelihoods. Inspired by the high poverty levels in the rural households in Teso, TECOMA is dedicated to working for improvement of the livelihood of the rural communities through empowering and building their potential to respond to their needs.
TECOMA places communities at the heart of her work. TECOMA helps communities take control of their own development, demanding efficient and effective service delivery. TECOMA sees its relationship with the communities as a partnership that creates opportunity to adapt, improve, and sustain all development initiatives of the local communities themselves.
Projects in TECOMA are designed in close consultation with the communities it works with using community participatory approaches for enhancement of ownership and sustainability. Projects designed are therefore need-based. Through these participatory development approaches, TECOMA acts as a facilitator rather than an implementer, and communities become active participants in projects, rather than passive recipients.
TECOMA has good and well-founded thoughts and intentions, provides capacity building activities for her member and the local communities, offers consultancy and marketing services for the members and the farmer community agricultural production with a view of improving community livelihoods. With the latent potentials within ourselves to contribute positively to attain our desired goals and objectives, TECOMA is committed to work as a team and in partnership with all the necessary stakeholders to achieve their desired goals and objectives.
