Field survey was conducted by sampling the opinion of eighty respondents purposively drawn for four villages of Dange, Shunni Wababe and Rikina to assess the community based participatory development project in Dange-shuni local government Area of Sokoto State Nigeria. The research instrument used was open-ended questionnaire and the data collected were analysed by the use of descriptive statistical tools (such as percentage frequency and chi square) to test the relationship between the variables. The study, therefore, reveals that community members were always ready to participate in community development project through self-help efforts by engaging mostly in erosion control, drainage construction, as well as rehabilitations of road, mosque and school through personal contributions of materials, finances, moral and provision of labour.
