The main purposes of the study were to evaluate the project in four aspects: a context evaluation, an input evaluation, a process evaluation, and a product evaluation. The 1,396 samples were collected from service recipients who were poverty problem registrants and general citizens while another 808 samples were collected from government officials and local municipal staffs. Questionnaires were distributed as a tool of data collection and were analyzed by using a frequency, means, and standard deviation (SD), Chi-square and Binary Logistic Regression.
