dc.description.abstract This study was carried out in Ukerewe district, Mwanza region, with the aim of finding how poverty persistence in Tanzania had been reduced by development projects operating under ASDP funds. District Agricultural Sector Investment Project (DASIP) project was used as a case for this study whereby data about it were collected through questionnaires, interview, observation and documentary review and analyzed quantitatively. The findings of the study showed that, the project had brought great changes in agriculture services such as education and infrastructures in the area of the study. The study concluded that, subprojects under DASIP were generally accepted by the community members in Ukerewe district. The project had also improved to some extent the livings standard of the members although the sustainability of the income generating subprojects was seen to be low due to different problems and challenges faced. Finally, the study recommended that, the Tanzanian Government and the project sponsor should find ways to make the income generating subprojects sustainable. The Government should extend the CMC and PFGs trainings; employ technical staff in each district for providing expertise. Academicians are encouraged to conduct further study in different districts about the income generating subprojects under DASIP which were seem to be not sustainable so that good solution can be found on how to make them sustainable in order to help the funded groups to improve their living. en_US
