dc.description.abstract This study investigated the influence of community attitude on sustainability of Most Vulnerable Children (MVC) projects. It was conducted in Morogoro Municipality with the view to establish the nature of support provided by CARE International to MVC, examine community involvement in MVC projects, explore community attitudes towards MVC and MVC projects, find out whether mtaa Most Vulnerable Children (MVCC) continued to support MVC, assess the effect of community attitudes on sustainability of mtaa MVCC and evaluate the livelihood security of MVC households. The study was descriptive and involved 130 respondents. Sampling of the study area and key informants was done purposively while household respondents were sampled by simple random sampling technique. Quantitative data were collected by using an interview schedule while qualitative data were collected through interviews and focus group discussions. Secondary data were collected through document review. Quantitative data were analysed by using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software while qualitative data were analysed by using content analysis technique. Study findings show that few MVC and household heads were supported by MVC projects, that community members were not involved adequately to identify MVC, their needs and how to address them, that community members had negative attitude towards MVC and MVC projects, that mtaa MVCCs were not sustainable, that negative attitude towards MVC significantly affected sustainability of mtaa MVCC projects, and that support provision by MVC projects had not improved the economic and food security of MVC households. en_US
