Abstract

This dissertation is an outcome of the research study conducted at Vijbweni sub ward and the project being implemented in the same street. It covers the period between June to July 2017. The participatory community assessment conducted at the Vijibweni Mtaa using participatory methods and tools like Focus Group Discussions (FGD), semi-structured Interviews and Field visit survey came out with four major community needs which needed to be urgently addressed. Among the needs identified, sustainable source of income ranked as need number one, immediately, after further assessment of the causes of the need, green vegetable production was identified as a project that will enable them increase their income through sale of green and at the same time increase their production hence improved livelihoods. The study concludes that the communities can use their production and based activities as sustainable sources of income provided that they agree to plan and implement them is a means that poverty is eradicated. Therefore the study recommends that deliberate efforts should be taken to involve all stakeholders in implementation of community economic development projects to ensure sustainability and reduced poverty that is threatening the nation.
