Abstract

The study was conducted in Ilala Municipality. The objective of the study was to assess and evaluate the contribution of TASAF sub projects in promoting provision of quality secondary education through participatory approach. Triangulation was applied by mixing qualitative and quantitative techniques. Interviews were directed to Senior TASAF Leaders. Questionnaire were directed to Local Government Leaders, Teachers and students, while focused Group discussions were conducted with 30 Local Government Leaders and School Teachers. The findings of the research revealed that 100% the respondents contacted were aware that TASAF operates effectively in their community and followed their policy guideline of always involving the people in identifying sub project and need identification. Some of respondents during focus group discussion revealed they also attend community meetings in which subprojects were identified. Nearly 100% of respondents noted that in some cases TASAF encounter challenges, which led to failure to deliver fund at the right time, and community not being mobilized in time, to play their role in the projects. It is therefore recommended that TASAF head office should specify time frame and feedback to community in order to enable the schools to demonstrate practically, avoidance of complicated procedures and include in its planning cycle binding calendar, deadlines against each benchmark by focusing few community demands which are manageable.
