Abstract

NGOs are a vital important cog of the development process. There are synonymous with the development discourse. Their role in development is invaluable. However, a quantum of inadequacies in NGOs’ programming is militating against development. This paper is anchored on qualitative research that was conducted in Chegutu district. Focus Group Discussion were also used to extricate data on the shortcomings of NGOs. Lack of involvement of communities in project design, cheating, competition and neglect of certain categories of societal memberssummaries some of the glaring shortcomings of NGOs. Strengthening of monitoring and evaluation systems, capacity building of community cadres and the involvement of the poor in the design of the projects will help to solve some of the challenges compounding NGOs’ performance.
