However, inadequate literature is available on the impact of the fund on literacy levels. This paper sought to highlight how Constituency Development Fund has influenced literacy levels in North Mugirango/Borabu Constituency. The established that the fund has improved literacy levels in the constituency. The paper recommends that government should consider allocating more resources particularly to the CDF kitty to foster initiation of education and other projects in the country.
