The phenomenal growth in the level of poverty in spite of the increasingly government established programs aimed at poverty alleviation in Nigeria call for the study into other options outside the purview of the Government. Hence this paper examines the impact of Non-Governmental Organisations activities on poverty alleviation among dwellers of selected villages (Gidan Kwano, Gidan Mangoro and Gurara) in Bosso Local Government, Niger State of Nigeria based on Weisbrod performance failure theory. A framework of three NGOs activities: Electricity supply, borehole provision and humanitarian services as a determinant for poverty alleviation was developed. The quantitative approach with survey design was employed for the study. The quota sampling technique was adopted so as to provide a representative sample of the various subgroups within the population. A self-structured questionnaire in Hausa language was used to collect data from 107 respondents. Descriptive statistics, Pearson-Product Moment correlation and Multiple Regression analysis were used for the data analysis. The study concludes that a significant relationship exist between electricity supply, humanitarian services and poverty alleviation but not with provision of borehole. It is therefore, recommended that NGOs should pay more attention to the supply of electricity and provision of humanitarian services in seeking to alleviate poverty in the selected villages.
