donors (UNDP for its area based development – and EC mainly)

farmers

local microcredit institutions

local schools and youth centres

results

Enabled the local community based structure (Mahalla Fund) to serve as a repository and disseminator of information on the role of civil society and citizens in development

Results
problems

The bureaucracy involved in setting the centres up

the short time of the project supporting their establishment, monitoring and evaluation

preference by the donors to work with NGOs rather than community based organizations

Problems
sustainability

Centres have been working for just over a year, the prospects are promising

build successfully on existing structures to create a service that is likely to be useful and sustainable in the long run.

Set up sufficiently modestly so that they require little money for their upkeep. Mahalla Funds, who do have a budget, are eager to make the centres work and local authorities are very supportive.

The running costs of the centres are already covered from the budgets of the Mahalla Funds.
