Abstract


The rural communities benefiting from PIT NGO's funding struggle to take ownership of the projects carried out in their localities, despite their participation. This is the case of the communities in the area of intervention of the Sokodé Program Unit which has 256 villages in the prefectures of Tchaoudjo and Tchamba. This article aims to identify the factors that explain the non-continuation of projects after the end of their funding. Thus, while all the respondents state that PIT is the initiating institution of participatory diagnoses, they are 8,08% of respondents to find effective the training of the facilitators (external and local), against 63,64% who consider it less effective and 28.28% who find it completely ineffective. In addition, 100% of the members of the ad-hoc committees, against 60% and 40% of those of CVD, 75% and 25% of agents partners and 20% and 10% of agents of PIT, respectively recognize in this NGO and communities, the structures that identify the projects to be carried out. Moreover, during the implementation of the projects, all the respondents denounced the haste with which the community trainings are organized, the lack of practices on the ground after the sessions in theaters and the post-project monitoring mechanism. All these factors are the result of the injunctions and deadline requirements that International Plan has to face from the donors and the combined lack of qualified resources within the partner structures for the development of a mobilization mechanism. funding, as well as post-project monitoring.

Abstract: (french)


Les communautés rurales bénéficiaires des financements de l’ONG PIT peinent à s’approprier les projets réalisés dans leurs localités pourtant avec leur participation. C’est le cas des communautés de la zone d’intervention de l’Unité de Programme de Sokodé qui compte 256 villages dans les préfectures de Tchaoudjo et de Tchamba. Cet article se propose d’identifier les facteurs explicatifs de la non poursuite des projets après la fin de leurs financements. Ainsi, si tous les enquêtés affirment que PIT est l’institution initiatrice des diagnostics participatifs, ils sont 8,08% d’enquêtés à trouver efficace la formation des facilitateurs (externes et locaux), contre 63,64 % qui la jugent moins efficace et 28,28 % qui la trouvent complétement inefficace. En outre, 100% des membres des comités ad-hoc, contre 60% et 40% de ceux de CVD, 75% et 25% d’agents partenaires et 20% et 10% d’agents de PIT, respectivement reconnaissent en cette ONG et des communautés, les structures qui identifient les projets à réaliser. Par ailleurs, durant la mise en œuvre des projets, tous les enquêtés dénoncent la précipitation avec laquelle s’organisent les formations communautaires, l’absence de pratiques sur le terrain après les séances en salles et de mécanisme suivi post-projet. Tous ces facteurs sont la résultante des injonctions et des impératifs de délai auxquels doit se soumettre PIT de la part des bailleurs de fonds et de l’absence conjuguée de ressources qualifiées au sein des structures partenaires pour l’élaboration d’un mécanisme de mobilisation des financements, ainsi que celui de suivi post-projet.
