Tusubila recently emerged from the community nutrition segment of the Iowa State University-Uganda program which is administered by the Center for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Donors and administering units would like to see Tusubila become a self-sustaining, independent organization. This project was created as an initial step in that development process and sets out to answer the question, “What are the individual and collective capacities that Tusubila crafts group can draw upon to benefit their organization”? This report presents the cumulative individual assets of the members of Tusubila crafts group, describes the methods used to obtain and process the data, and points out how Tusubila can utilize its human capital to develop. It also includes next steps for promoting the group’s development as well as suggestions for improved data collection for follow-up studies.
