The Annual Report

for the

Small Project Assistance Program

October 4, 1985

Office of Training and Program Support

INTRODUCTION

This is the annual


report on the Small Project Assistance Program

(SPA), a collaborative program between the Agency for International

Development (AID) and Peace Corps (PC).


The purpose of this
report is two

fold. First, it serves



as a means of reporting on the activities made

possible under the SPA


Program, both field projects and Washington
spon­
sored program and training consultancies. Second, it allows
for an

exchange of information on individual SPA projects.

The format for the report follows the original report, June
1984, and

subsequently includes all


SPA projects and technical assistance
since the beginning of the program.
Please note that future provided

reports will

only include new projects started and/or received after September


Since the information on previous projects will not be reproduced 1, 1985.

entirety, you are encouraged to keep this report for future in its

reference.

Please note that information in the section on project summaries


con­
tains only those projects for which we have received completed
Activity Agreements. Completed reports not included in this Individual

be forwarded to Peace Corps Washington, OTAPS for inclusion report should

in the next

report.

The Small Project Assistance Program (SPA) started in January of 1983

with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Agency


International Development and the Peace Corps.
Since that time,
for

34 countries have negotiated Country Agreements to participate in the


SPA

-rogram, each administering a fund of $40,000 per year, which supports

small community projects.

The original criteria for country participation in the SPA program was

that a Peace Corps and a USAID adminstrative relationship exist in the

country, and there be at least 10 Volunteers serving in the country.

The

following 34 countries are currently participating in the SPA Program:

NANEAP Inter-America Africa


Morocco Belize Benin Liberia
Nepal Costa Rica Botswana Malawi
Philippines D.R. Burkina Faso Mauritania
Thailand E. Caribbean Cameroon Niger
Tunisia Guatemala C.A.R. Senegal
Yemen Haiti Gambia Sierra Leon
Honduras Ghana Swaziland
Jamaica Kenya
Paraguay Lesotho

SPA FIELD PROJECTS

The SPA Program is decentralized by design


-- a fast funding mechanism

for community projects. As such it is administered by PC/AID in-country.

Individual
project requests are submitted to Peace Corps and upon approval

are forwarded to AID for funding. The qualifying criteria for SPA projects

are intentionally broad, establishing parameters within which countries


may

approve individual projects. The criteria is as


follows:

1. The activity must be scheduled for completion within one year of its

implementation.

2. The estimated contribution of SPA funds toward completion of the

activity must not exceed $i0,000.

3. It must involve development in the broad areas of food, energy,

small enterprise developement and/or income generating activities.

4. It must not
encourage reliance on U.S. assistance.

5. The project must be conceived and implemented in conjunction with


a

local community organization or group.

All approved projects are summarized by the community and Volunteers


on
an

Individual Activity Agreement (IAA).


IAAs are forwarded to Peace Corps

Washington, where they are abstracted and classified, as to the primary

program impact area.

-1­
The SPA program impact areas are restricted to the following:

1. Food Production/Income Generation


2. Income Generation
3. Food Production
4. Energy

5. Health (A new program impact area as of FY86)

This annual report contains the abstracted summary of all completed


projects since the beginning of the SPA Program. To date over 700 projects
have been funded for more than $ 1,980,000.00. Forty-four percent (43.5%)

of the projects were designed to increase iood production and included an


income generation component. An additional nineteen percent (19.3%) of

the total funded activities has supported efforts to introduce income

generation schemes outside of the agricultural sphe_=. Chart I summaries

ANALYSIS OF SPA FIELD PROJECTS

Food Production Projects/Income Generation: Overall, projects designed

to address food production/income generation made up the largest percentage

of approved SPA projects. Given the importance of food production in

Africa, it is not surprising that the Africa Region had the largest percen­
tage of food/income projects, with roughly half of their SPA projects being

related to food production/income generation.


It is, however, interesting

to note that Africa had the highest average cost per project.

Chart II: Percentage of Food/Income Generating Projects and Average

Cost per Project by Regions

Region % of SPA Projects Average Cost/Proj.


AFRICA 50.2% $ 4068.76
NANEAP 35.8% $ 1260.69
IA 35.8% $ 1893.22

Income Generation Projects:


In the Africa and IA Regions, income

generating projects, not tied to food production, were the second largest

category of approved SPA projects. IA had the largest number of projects

with the lowest average cost per project, while NANEAP had the fewest pro­
jects but the highest average cost per project.

IA
29.9% $ 2988.39

AFRICA 15.4% $ 3094.10

NANEAP 10.0% $ 4309.72

-3­
Food Production Projects: The percentage of strictly food production
prnjects was small in all three regions and the cyst per project was
roughly the same. In many countries food production projects are closely
linked with income generation and are therefore classified as
food

prod/income projects. This may account for the seemingly small number of

food production projects.


Chart IV: Percentage of Food Production Projects and Average
Cost per Project by Regions

Region %of SPA Projects Average Cost/Proj.

IA 13.5% $ 2809.31
NANEAP 11.7% $ 2085.03
AFRICA 10.7% $ 2339.66

Energy Projects: Energy related projects constitute the smallest


category of approved SPA projects - overall 5.7%. Of interest is the rela­
tively high cost of energy projects in NANEAP and low cost in IA. The
types of projects differ considerably, in that NANEAP countries have done
more solar energy projects and IA more fuel conservation. See the section

project summaries for more information on individual projects.

Chart V: Percentage of Energy Related Projects and Average


Cost per Project by Regions

Region % of SPA Projects Average Cost/Proj.

IA 6.7% $ 1364.37

AFRICA 5.8% $ 3193.17

NANEAP 3.9% $ 5834.51

Other Projects: The classification of "other" is reserved for those

projects which do not strictly fall within the approved program impact

areas. These projects constitute 14.6% of all SPA projects, with NANEAP

having the largest percentage of 28.9%, Africa following with 14.2% and IA

having the smallest percent of other projects 7.5%. Although these

projects are valuable community projects, more empnasis should be placed on

approving those projects which are within the or'ginal SPA program impact
area.

No Classification: This is a temporary category containing those pro­


jects for which there is little to no information relating to the impact
area. Some counLries submit a quarterly report of approved projects, but
have not submitted completed activity reports for all of the projects, there­
fore we have a current record of the number of projects and the amount

spent but no information as to the nature of the project. These projects

will be recl3ssified once individual activity reports are received.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

In addition to the SPA fund, AID provides money through

Agency Services Agreement (PASA), for technical assistance a Participating

(TA)
countries. The purpose of Technical Assistance is to stimulate to SPA
and support
the development of field based small projects through program
consultations and/or specifically targeted in-service technical
for Peace Corps staff, Volunteers and host country nationals.
training

Technical Assistance is now offered to 40 countries.


It is admi­
nistered by PC/W in coordination with the Regions.
On
a quarterly basis, a
committee reviews all of the TA requests and informs the
country of the

action taken.
While the SPA/TA Review Committee attempts
to fund all

requests, limited funds may prevent this.


In light of the
increasing number

of requests, it becomes more and


more important for countries
to submit

clear, concise, and complete requests.

To assist countries in submitting their requests, the following


guide­
lines were developed. The information is designed to be
used as
either a

guide to writing requests or as


a checklist prior to submitting
them.

GUIDELINES FOR REQUESTING TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE+

** Think of a TA request as if it were a proposal and follow


the basic

principles of proposal writing:

o Plan before you write


- Work out as much detail to

your request as possible. This will ensure that you

have thought of all possible costs, resource

requirements, and potential benefits.

o Be concise, brief and logical


- Requests need not be
lengthy but they need to show all
components and the

logic used in planning for the activity.

o Be complete -
As noted above, without all the

facts, your request cannot be given fair con­


sideration when competing for limited funds.

+ For a sample see Appendix III

-5­
**Include the What, Who, When, Where, Why

o Describe the Activity

1. Tell us exactly WHAT you want. Indicate if you


want:

a) a consultant to come and conduct a program eva­


luation or, assist with program modification,
b) a trainer to conduct or design an IST,
c) funds to cover travel to a workshop/conference,
d) funds to cover an in-country workshop/conference.
e) funds to cover staff visits to neighboring
country for consultancy/exchange

f) other

2. Identify WHO will participate in the activity

and how many are expected. Indicate if the par­


ticipants will be:

a) PCVs only (what sector)

b) HCNs and PCVs (what sector and HCNs' rela­


tionship to PCVs)
c) PC staff

d) Ministry Officials

3. As much as possible pinpoint WHEN the acti­


vity will take place and its duration.

4. Identify WHERE the activity will take place.

Is it:

a) Out of country (where?)


b) In the capital
c) At the PCVs site
d) Through out the country (try to identify how
many site visits would be involved)

o Explain the Expected Benefits from the Activity (WHY)

1. Provide brief background information which will

help us understand the importance of the acti­


vity and why it is needed at this time.

-6­
2. Highlight the outcomes you expect. Will the acti­
vity result in:

a) New program directions


b) Skill enhancement on the part of participants
(what skills?)
c) Development of new SPA projects

d) Introduction of new technology/methodologies


(what are they?)
e) Improved relationships with HCN counterparts and
or Ministry Officials
f) Increased level of technical knowledge (what
type?)

g) Other

** Include all of the estimated costs for the activity.

o Itemize the Costs

1. For travel costs include:

a) PCV/HCN counterpart transportation


b) Consultant transport from Washington to country

c) Consultant in-country transportation


2. For per diem show daily amount (using in-country
rates) times number of days of the activity.
3. For trainers and/or consultants use an average of

$18 0/day for their salary times the number of

days work required for the activity (figure a 6

day work week, Mon-Sat).


4. For conferences and workshops, indicate if there

is a tuition or entrance fee.


5. For training programs identify special materials
which will be needed (if known at time of
request), and any rental or purchase costs.

6. Show a total for the activity.

7. Indicate what,
if any, of the total will be

covered by country agencies and/or PC.

Know what the review committee is looking for

-7­
o Criteria used in reviewing TA Requests is broad and

meant to ensure that requests support and/or stimu­


late SPA projects and are well thoughtout by the

countries. The major criteria are:

1. Relevance to SPA activities.

2. Contribution of PC in-country.
3. Previous level of TA assistance to country.
4. Distribution of resources across all regions.

o The Committee is looking for evidence that the

country staff have thoroughly planned for the


requested activity.

o The Committee tries to maximize the benefit of each

activity. They are, thereFore, looking for ways to

institutionalize the information/skills covered in

the activity. As a result they do not give top


priorty for requests to send PCVs and/Staff to

workshops/conferences outside the host

country,unless it can be demonstrated that the con­


ference offers unique information which cannot

otherwise be covered in-country. When funds permit

these requests are usually funded as long as the

format and content of the conference is seen as

appropriate for PC participation.

SPA EVALUATION AND AGENCY PLANS

The SPA Program was originally undertaken as an experimental


program
and as such was evaluated to:

1) review the management of the SPA program in the


2) assess

field,

the impact of the program or, both agencies,

3) determine
the relative success and/or failure of SPA projects

and

4) assess
the effectiveness of the Peace Corps' use of SPA/TA

funds.

-9­
The evaluation conducted by Creative Associates and Benchmarks, Inc.
documented an overwhelmingly postive regard for and use of the SPA

Program. It showed that "SPA provides an essential tool for community

development and that it contributes greatly to Volunteer work

satisfaction". While copies of the evaluation have been forwarded to Peace

Corps and AID missions, the following briefly highlights the major

findings.

Management of SPA:

FINDING - The decentralized nature of the SPA Program management


generally works very well and should be continued.
PLAN - PC/W will continue to support the decentralized nature by
providing more communication about and exchange of
"successful field projects" and "things to avoid".
FINDING - Clearer guidelines should be provided to the field on the
disbursement of SPA funds.

PLAN - Updated guidance was sent to the field July 1985.

FINDING - AID should allow a small portion of SPA funds to be used to

augment the PC staff capability for effective SPA program

management.

PLAN - As this would involve a change in the present AID/PC


understanding, which precludes the use of any SPA funds for
administration, there are no plans to change this restriction
on SPA funds. Further consideration will be given to this
finding.

FINDING - Funds available for the SPA program be doubled, that the pre­
sent "formula" level of $40,000 per country be retained, and
that additional increases be based on requests from indivi­
dual countries, performance to date in use of SPA funds, the
number of Volunteers and the level of poverty in the country
in question.
PLAN - AID and PC will explore the possibility of removing the
$40,000 ceiling on the country program and allowing each
country PC and AID posts to negotiate an appropriate
funding level. Any increase would be based on available

funds and AID country budget requests.

FINDING - A majority of AID and PC staff favor including Health and


Education projects eligible for SPA funds.
PLAN - Health has been added as one of the SPA program impact areas,

as of Sept. 1, 1985. AID has made 1.5 million dollars

available for country field project in health over the next


two years. Subsequent funding will be based on an evaluation

of the first two years.


Discussions are underway regarding the inclusion of Education

as an SPA program impact areas.

-10­
FINDING - Peace Corps should take steps to provide periodic
information

to all posts
on conmon pitfalls and promising practices.

PLAN - PC will establish a written form of communication, to and

from the field, pertaining to SPA projects.

FINDING - There is a need to design and implement a simple system


to

determine whether SPA projects are a success or failure and


to learn from these experiences.

PLAN - PC will solicit examples of evaluation methods used by field

staff and develop a suggested model for evaluating SPA pro­


jects.

FINDING - Peace Corps training must prepare Volunteers to use


SPA funds

in appropriate ways that encourage rather than hinder com­


munity responsibility and initiative.

PLAN - Training materials covering the appropriate use of external


assistance, project design and implementation, are being

developed. Field testing of these materials will take place

during Oct. 1985.


FINDING - The annual
briefings called for in the McPherson-Ruppe
Letter

of Understanding which created SPA program were neither

requested by AID nor provided by the PC in any of the

countries visited.
PLAN ­ PC/W will reiterate the importance and need for informtional

exchanges and provide some examples of how these exchanges have

been conducted in various countries.

Impact on AID and Peace Corps:

FINDING -
The sentiment of AID, PC staff, and Volunteers was
that SPA

contributed to the Volunteers effectiveness, job satisfac­


tion, and was
worth the additional work. Disadvantages and

risks noted that the SPA Program could have serious disadvan­
tages IF it were

not handled properly by the Volunteers.

PLAN - The training models will


address the potential problems and

risks associated with the SPA Program.


They will train

Volunteers and Staff in how to a)plan with a community group,

b) write proposals, and c) manage projects.


In addition they

will address the philisophical issues of handling funds and

working in community development.

SPA Projects:

FINDING
- The evaluation surnnarizes projects and identifies
things
which may indicate the likelihood of success, i.e., size,
community contribution, and advance planning.

-11­
PLAN - This type of information will be included in a brochure which
is being developed. The information brochure covers general
description of SPA, how it works at the community level and
things to know prior to starting a SPA project.

SPA/TA:
FINDING - SPA/TA should be designed in-country as much as possible.

PLAN - To continue supporting the field requested TA, while also


assuming more responsibility to initiate training sessions
and consultancies which have been useful or appear relevant
to specific countries.
FINDING - Field staff should be encouraged to use SPA/TA funds to hire
locally available technical resource people.
PLAN - Continue to support this type of TA request and include it as

sample TA requests to consider.


FINDING - Information should be shared among all countries about how
SPA/TA is being used, and its availability.

PLAN - Include SPA/TA information in the "SPA Exchange".

FINDING - Field staff should be consulted prior to selecting a con­


sultant for techical assistance.

PLAN - Continue this practice when arranging TA consultancies.

FINDING - There should be greater coordination between AID and PC at

the country level in using SPA/TA.


PLAN - Encourage this coordination and provide examples of such
exchange in the "SPA Exchange".
FINDING - SPA/TA funds should be used more frequently to assist

countries to improve their management of the SPA program


itself.

PLAN - Provide TA consultants to work with staff and Volunteers in


designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating small com­
munity projects. A staff training model is being developed to

increase staff skills in project planning and management.

This model will be available for individual countries and for

regional programing conferences.

FINDING - The Advisory Group now guiding the use of SPA/TA in

Washington should be given clearer responsibilities and

power.

-12­
PLAN -
Two groups h~ve been established. One being the SPA/TA

Review Committee, including all


sector specialists, regional

representation, and AID representation.


This group meets

quarterly to review the SPA/TA requests and identify

appropriate resources for approved requests. The second group


the Sub-Committee of the AID/PC Coordinating Committee, is a
working group which addresses policy recommendations and

changes in the SPA Program.

THE ROLE OF THE VOLUNTEER IN A SUCCESSFUL SPA PROJECT

Success of an SPA project is determined by


The process of a community working together to more than the end product.

address an
identified need,

is as much a part of the success as the end result.

Successful SPA projects should enhance a community's ability to


nize, plan, make group decisions, and result in the community being orga­
more
confident and able to transfer these organizational and technical
skills to
other tasks. PCVs play an important role in helping to ensure
project is successful. By assuming the role of a "facilitator" that an SPA
rather than

a "doer" of the project, a PCV helps to transfer technical skills,


enhance

leadership capacity, and increase self-reliance.

PCVs whu have worked with SPA projects have identified the following
as

factors
that help to facilitate the accomplishment of the project
ensure t"at the process of skill transference and organizational and to

develop­
ment occurs.

Ownership of the Project A successful project is owned by the


community

organization. While a PCV brings skills that can help the community
to
define a problem, identify a solution, access resources, and implement
the activity, the community must consider it their project. A
clear
danger sign is if a
PCV finds s/he is the only one working on
the pro­
ject or begins to identify the project as "mine" rather than the
com­
munity 's.

Problem Identification A successful project addresses a clearly


defined
problem, one that can be broken down to basic causes. A PCV's
analyti­
cal skills can be extremely useful in helping the community to
identify

possible causes of a problem and thereby select the most appropriate


solution and implementation strategy. For example, a community
may

know that they have a shortage of grain.


The PCV, using a problem

solving approach, can help to identify whether the shortage is


by poor seeds, inadequate water supply, poor soil, insufficient caused

nical skills, pests, lack


of labor, poor harvesting techniques, tech­
Once the problem and the causes
have been identified, the projectetc.

stra­
tegy becomes clear to everyone.
Planning Successful projects depends on
thorough planning before
implemen­
tation. PCVs can help in the planning process by introducing
simple
planning tools and asking clarifying questions. The community
group,

however, needs to be involved in and take responsibility for the

planning.

-13­
Implementation
Projects which have significant contributions from the

community, both in-kind and financial,


are more likely to succeed.

During the implementation phase of a project a PCV may be instrumental

in training participants in new and/or improved technical skills

related to the project.


The transfer of skills during this trainirng is

essential for the long term success of the project.

The Proposal The content of a proposal should come from the community

organization whenever possible. Some countries translate proposal forms

so as to
increase community members understanding and participation in

submitting the pro-posal. PCVs


can be extremely helpful in organizing

and writing a clear proposal.


Record Keeping SPA projects are funded with government money and must,

therefore, be accounted for with proper receipts and vouchers.


Again

the PCV may be more knowlegable about these procedures and can be of

assistance to the community group.

Before a project request is sumbitted arrangements are to be made for

handling the project money.


Ideally, money is paid directly from AID

to local
vendors for materials and supplies. In some cases, however,

this is not possible and cash advances must be given to the community
group. A Volunteer may help the community group open a bank account
and establish a simple record keeping system, if one does not exist
already.

Volunteers have found that setting up a checking account which requires

co-signatures ensures open and responsible disbursement of the project

funds.

Monitoring and Evaluation Throughout the life of the project, the community
group and the PCV should monitor their progress towards the projects

goals. By continuing to monitor the project, the community organization

can make any adjustments necessary to ensure the ultimate success.

For each SPA project, a final report which reviews the project to see
whether the original goals were met, identifies lessons learned and
discusses benefits of the project. While the final report may be writ­
ten by the PCV, recommendations and comments should be from community

members.

support the

construction of a brick factory in the community of


Torrescue. The area in which Torrescue is located has only
recently been developed and transportation of bricks to this
area is expensive and often impossible because of road con­
ditions.
These bricks will be used by community members to

construct stoves (fagons), latrines, bathhouses, well linings


and a communal grain drying floor. The construction of
fagons will provide several benefits including firewood con­
servation and improved cooking hygiene.
SPA funds will

Grain Storage of Valenzuela, Paraguay.

Funding Amount: $ 218.11


Activity Description: The activity will
support the

establishment of 3 demonstration grain silos on the land of


three separate farmers. The availability of effective and

inexpensive storage facilities will enable farmers to storL


their grain until market prices
are higher. In addition,

farmers will
have added incentive to increase production

because the improved storage will allow them to store more


grain for a longer period of time.
After the experimental

silos have been tested through this project, they can be pro­
duced for sale at the Agromechanic School and made available
at affordable prices to farmers throughout Paraguay. The

technology can also be taught to local tradesmen, thereby


providing additional employment to other members of the com­
munity. SPA funds will be used to purchase agricultural
supplies, construction materials for the three silos and
insecticides.
