Even though HIV/AIDS prevalence is said to have stabilized, the rate of new infections is still high, hence a renewed call to focus on prevention efforts by all stakeholders. This study aimed at investigating the influence donors have on implementation of HIV/AIDS projects that are implemented by local NGOs. To achieve this, a descriptive survey was carried out in twelve local NGOs that implemented HIV/AIDS projects in Mukuru slams in Nairobi. The target population was 246 people, a 10% sample was drawn from this sample frame giving a sample size of 25 respondents. The researcher used both closed and open ended questionnaires as the primary data collection instruments. A content analysis and descriptive analysis was employed to analyze the data collected and content analysis used to analyze the respondents’ views. The findings of the study indicated that 92% of the donors have a direct influence on the type of project to be implemented. Community involvement was reported to be key with 89% saying that they community should be involved. 55% of the respondents said that there should be capacity building of all stakeholders for the success of the project, while 55% of the respondents said that effective monitoring and evaluation system is key. In conclusion this study would recommend that the NGOs management board closely monitor the use of the donor money used to implement HIV/AIDS project to avoid mismanagement and the board comes up with a mechanism to ensure that there is a buy in of the implemented project by the benefiting community for sustainability of the project. The capacity of all the stakeholders should also be effectively built for their greater involvement and for there to be a strong monitoring and evaluation system.
