In a study of education projects in Honduras, the authors investigate whether participatory, community-driven approaches to social investment fund projects improve educational outcomes and community members’ perceptions of the projects’ effectiveness. Although they do not find significant effects of the education projects on academic outcomes of school-aged youth, they do observe a positive relationship between the use of participatory methods and household opinions of the projects.
