Abstract

This Dissertation is an outcome of the community needs assessment conducted in Mbweni Ward, which resulted into a proposed project namely ‘Training in Improved Mushroom Production’, implemented by Mapambano Vegetable Growers Group. Community Needs Assessment used various participatory methods which resulted into identification of limited livelihoods opportunities being the major problem affecting the community. The core problem was contributed by inadequate land for agricultural production, lack of knowledge on mushroom production and inadequate capital for business investment. However, the income generating activity which was identified to improve livelihoods was mushroom production. Vegetable growers group implemented the project which was designed based on the following specific objectives; to conduct training in improved mushroom production techniques. Participatory Monitoring and evaluation realized project outputs at about 80% for enhancing knowledge of mushroom production The project report recommended various issues including; the importance of using participatory approach to build sense of ownership as a good approach and the use of Logical framework Approach as a good project planning method.
