Abstract: The main objective of this study was to investigate the role of local and external non governmental organizations (LNGOs and ENGOs) and its resources contribution to the primary education development projects (PEDPs) in Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Regional Government. To conduct this study, a descriptive survey was employed. For this purpose samples are taken from 3 zones, 7 woredas, and 41 schools. The research study involved two categories of sample population: NGOs and GOs. Questionnaire survey, interview, documents, and personal observation were the main instruments used to collect the data. Data analysis was made by using statistical tools such as percentage, chi-square and rank order correlation coefficient to identify whether there are differences and agreements in the judgement of the respondents regarding the various variables on the role of NGOs in PEDPs. The results obtained suggested that both the LNGOs and ENGOs are involved in providing assistance programmes for different developmental projects implemented in the region. Nevertheless, it was found that there is high concentration of NGOs and their projects on the previous drought prone areas without analyzing the current problems of the region. The findings indicated that the majority of the NGOs gave more emphasis to the projects on capital investment having only limited amount of their projects spent on recurrent expenditures. Based on the need assessment of the communities, assistance was channeled through the local government, the NGOs, and through handing over operational projects to the respective beneficiaries. However, it was found that NGOs could never encouraged the local community to choose the type of assistance/service they need in terms of their priorities in their respective areas. The study further revealed that though efforts have been made in setting up coordinating committees for organizing the various activities of NGOs in PEDPs, they were entangled with many difficulties and did not make an effort to bring about close work relationships among key power actors. It was also found that there is no formal relationships among the NGOs and never share information regarding their intervention activities. The results obtained generally indicated that all the problems cited by the findings are closely related to lack of coordination which the local government has not incorporated NGOs into its policies and structures; and NGOs on their part are not organized to help the local government to further collaboration. On the other hand, even though attempts have been observed to monitor and evaluate educational projects, they were concentrated more on monitoring physical dimension or evaluation of infrastructure projects and ignore the sustainability, social dimension, and impact of expenditures. In addition, it was observed from the study that there are significant differences among the NGOs' project performance in different target areas of the region. Finally, based on the findings and conclusions, recommendations were made to address the problem under study.
