Thernprogram (PSNP) has two key oNectives namely preventing household asset and creating communityrnassets through public works. It is practiced in the rural parts of the major regions of Ethiopia. The studyrnwereda, Lanforo, started to benefit from the program since 2005.rnThough there are reporls for the contribution of the program to asset protection, there are also observedrnproblems particularly on the public works. These include poor quality of public works, maintenancernproblem, work burden on female-headed households, low participation of both beneficiaries and no~ -rnbeneficiaries in the community work. Taking these problems into consideration, this paper aimed atrnassessing the PSNl' with particular emphasis on the public works.rnThis research is expected to shed some light on the PSNP particularly on the public work. It is importantrnto ensure the effectiveness and the sustainability of the public work that is the core component of thernprogram. This can be achieved by giving inpul to concerned bodies who work for the improvement of thernprogram. Furthermore, it can be a baseforfill'ther research work.rnThe research was conducted in Lanforo wereda taking two kebeles namely Lanforo Geblll}{/ and TararnKikoTll. They are taken as representative kebeles since they are located in one of the two agro- ecologicalrnzones in the wereda. Moreover, these kebeles practice intensive public works. From these kebeles 125rnsample households, which is 13% of the total beneficiaries, was taken for the study.rnThe major findings of the research include that PSNP program has contributed 10 the protection of assetsrn(household assets, productive asset, and livestock assets) and creating community assets.

The sludy also revealed that most of the household, stated payment reiatedrnproblems like late payment, low amount compared to the public work. Besides, the existing type of thernpayment (cash only) is also a problem for most of the respondents.rnIn general, the study shows that the PSNl' has registered a positive result in asset protection and building.rnNonetheless, these results can be reversed unless measures are taken to solve the problems.
