ABSTRACT 

The aim of this research report was to find out whether sustainable development can actually be realized when aid is passed through NGOs. Three objectives were used during the study. That is; to find out the various forms aid received, to identify the best forms of aid, and to find out how the various forms of aid complement each other to lead to rural development Caritas an international NGO working in Lugazi Catholic diocese in Uganda was used as a case study. Data was collected and analysed using both qualitative and quantitative methods. A study population of 200 respondents were served with questionnaires and a sample size determined using Collombat’s formula. Interview guides were used to ascertain the questionnaire responses. Collected data was processed and fed into SPSS for advanced analysis and interpretation. The findings show that foreign aid through NGOs actually lead to development contrary to previously held doubts on its relevance to boost development. Data interpretation yielded the best form of aid is capacity building; and that different types of aid work better while are in complementary with each other. Governments, NGOs and other development partners need to work together to jointly address rural development needs. Since aid usually has conditions, benefits to both the recipients and the donors need to be measured quantitatively in order to assess its urgency for sustainable development.
