Oh yes, these challenges are very common in villages. You see a population closing eyes on mismanagement of funds because after all it is the project leader who was lucky to see the call for application and who used his knowledge/intelligence to write a successful proposal even if he wrote it in the name of the Community Common Initiative Group. As a result, they feel happy to contend themselves with the little he (project leader) is willing to implement in the community. It is really unfortunate. No matter how participatory we want to be in our approach, the poor/needy/underprivileged in a project and (ii) bring the latter to be fully engaged in the transparent management of funds and other resources allocated to the project.
