The study was to determine beneficiary community members’ expectation of the benefits of social development projects in Education Rights, Gender and Women’s Rights and Food Rights. Sixteen criteria were gotten, initially, using participatory rural appraisal. These were included in the basic information section of a questionnaire. The questionnaire also sought classification and identification information of respondents. It was administered to one hundred respondents selected through purposive sampling to ensure equal representation from identifiable sections of the entire population, in twenty communities. Factor analysis of the data has identified a four factor solution that underlies decisions for project selection. The first most important factor is economic empowerment. The second most important factor is education. The other two factors which cannot be ignored are quality of life and social empowerment.
