Abstract: The process of making education universal has become both very important and most challenging commitment for most low-income countries. This endeavor, in spite of creating many school places and bringing about a relative decrease in the enrollment has stretched the scarce resources of these countries beyond the limits of being effective in attaining the goal of universalizing of primary education. The inability to satisfy the growing needs of more school places, more teachers, more equipment and facilities as well as more learning and teaching materials only from domestic source of resources forces officials to look disparately for any alternative at least not to let the situation get worse that is external aid. T hus the main purpose of this study was to assess the practices and the problems of donor support in provision of primary education in Oromia Regional State. The method employed was descriptive survey and the data were collected from nine zones of twenty Woredas of donor catchment's areas of the region. Totally l3O(one hundred thirty) subjects (80 been ficiaries, 20 donors and 30 decision makers) selected by purpose and availability sampling techniques were included in the study. The data were Collected by means of questionnaires, interviews and field observations transcribed and analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively using statistical tools such as percentage, weighted mean, chi-square, t-test, ftest and correlations. The major findings of the study indicate that donors don't provide the budget timely, and this resulted in increased cost. The amount of budget is less than the required one, and this shows lack of transparencies on budgetary matters among the concerned body. It is also observed from the study that determining priority is the joint decision of only donors and OEB, but this exclusion of the beneficiaries resulted in poor accomplishments of the educational project. The sustainability of the educational projects are also completely depends upon the external aid. Therefore, it can be concluded that the implementations of donor assisted educational projects remained inefiicient and ineflective in the region. Therefore, it is suggested that further studies must be conducted on the issues under the consideration. In addition, making agreement around the objectives of the donors, proper use of the budget, involvements of beneficiaries in making decisions of priority and the sustainability of the projects are indispensable for the effective and efiicient implementations of educational projects.
