To cOllduct this study, a descriptive survey was employed. For this purpose samples are takell from 3 ZOlles, 7 woredas, amI 41 schools. The research study illvolved two categories of sample populatioll: NGOs amI GOs. Questiollllaire survey, illterview, documellts, alld persollal observatioll were the maill illstrumellts used to collect the data. Data allalysis was made by using statistical tools such as percelltage, chi-square alld rallk order correlatioll coefficiellt to idelltifY whether there are differellces alld agreemellts ill the judgemellt of the respolldellts regardillg the various variables 011 the role of NGOs ill PEDPs. The results obtailled suggested that both the LNGOs amI ENGOs are illvolved ill providillg assistallce programmes for differellt developmelltal projects implemellted in the regioll. Nevertheless, it was foulld that there is high COllcelltratioll of NGOs alld their projects 011 the previous drought prolle areas without allalyzillg the currellt problems of the regioll. The filldillgs illdicated that the majority of the NGOs gave more emphasis to the projects Oil capital illvestmellt havillg ollly limited amoullt of their projects spellt Oil recurrellt expellditures. Based 011 the lIeed assessmellt of the commullities, assistallce was challlleled through the local goverllmellt, the NGOs, alld through halldillg over operational projects to the respective belleficiaries. However, it !Vas foulld that NGOs could never ellcouraged the local commlmity to choose the type of assistallce/service they lIeed ill terms of their priorities ill their respective areas.

It was also foulld that there is I/O formal relatiollships amollg the NGOs alld lIever share illformatioll regardillg their illtervelltioll activities. The results obtailled gellerally illdicated that all the problems cited by the filldillgs are closely related to lack of COOrtlillatioll which the local goverumellt has 1I0t illcorporated NGOs illto its policies amI structures; alld NGOs 011 their part are 1I0t orgallized to help the local goverllmellt to ftlrther collaboratioll. 011 the other halld, evell though attempts have beell observed to mOllitor alld evaluate educatiollal projects, they were cOllcell/rated more 011 mOllitorillg physical dimellsioll or evaluatioll of illfrastructllre projects alld igllore the sustaillability, social dimellsioll, alld impact of expellditures. III additioll, it was observed from the study that there are sigllificallt differellces amollg the NGOs' project pelformallce ill differellt target areas of the regioll.
