dc.description.abstract This study examined Planning for Education Development Projects by drawing experiences from the Application of O&OD Approach in Kiroka Ward in Morogoro Rural District. Specifically, the study focused on identifying and describing the nature of Education Development Projects (EDP) in the localities; to identify and describe the Education Development Planning process in the localities and whether community members are involved in EDP in the selected villages. The study further focused specifically on identifying and describing the challenges which communities in the wards encounter in the process of applying O and OD approach in EDP and identifying and describing opportunities which might be utilized by the communities to enhance the application of O and OD in EDP in the wards. The study used a case study design, drawing a sample of 94 respondents which includes 14 key informants, 10 members of village council and 70 community members. Purposive sampling was used to select key informants while simple random sampling was used to select members of village council and snowball sampling was used to select community members. Primary data were collected through interviews, questionnaire and direct observation. Qualitative method was used to analyse the data from in-depth interviews. Questionnaire data were analysed using SPSS computer software where descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages were deployed. The study found that, the nature of EDP at Kiroka primary school and Kiziwa primary school villages were generally unsatisfactory as most of them had no doors, windows, wall plaster and roof. However, the condition of infrastructure at Bondwa primary school was generally good. EDP process started at the school committees, village council and village assembly. Community members were involved at the implementation stage. Lacks of technical capacity, low knowledge, unsupportive culture, low community attendance in the meeting and geographical factor were among the challenges inhibiting the use of O&OD approach. It is recommended from this study that, community initiative approach should be adopted to increase involvement of community members en_US
