An assessment of donor funding on sustainable development
This study has relevance in assessing the impact of a donor aided project through International Governmental Organizations (NGOs) ie UNDP on the economic and social welfare of the rural population. This will be a case study located in Yala ward, Siaya County at Sauri Village a millennium village due to the MDG support by UNDP. The choice to study UNDP’s project ie Sauri village was based on the fact that as a development INGO, UNDP has experience in implementation of variety donor aided projects across the region. This research will set out to ask the following questions, what is the nature and origin of projects being implemented by UNDP at Sauri Village? What is the impact of the Sauri Village Project? How sustainable is the project being implemented in the region? Is it possible for Sauri Village project to be implemented without donor aid? What constraints have INGOs encountered during implementation of these projects? The discussions will be guided by interview schedules with different respondents. Systematic and random sampling methods will be used to choose respondents as well as groups to participate in the study. This study intends to prove that 1) donor-aided projects accelerate the donor dependency syndrome among the beneficiaries; 2) the project is not sustainable as it is purely dependent of donors and not the beneficiaries or the government, 3) a small percentage are economically and socially impacted.
