The participatory planning workshop is an example of using the logical framework approach with community members and other stakeholders, to involve them in the details, or the 'nuts and bolts' of the project, so that their participation in implementation and monitoring was well grounded. There was a high disparity in levels of education, ranging from people who were illiterate to tertiary degree holders, but the workshop showed that this was not an issue when handled properly. The participants understood the project logic and developed appropriate interventions and indicators for successful implementation and for impact. The inclusion of community members and customary leaders provided indicators at a level which could be monitored by communities, and which gave the communities a role in ensuring project compliance with planned activities. A Kiswahili version of the workshop report was given to the participants.
