Evaluating the impact of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in rural and poverty alleviation: Zimbabwe country study

Working paper

Working paper

The major part of this Working Paper reports on the evaluation of four rural non-governmental organisation (NGO) interventions aimed broadly at poverty-alleviation and undertaken during 1990.

The paper forms part of a substantial ODI research project which sets out to assess the impact of NGOs in poverty alleviating projects in different geographical and institutional settings. It follows the publication in 1990 of Working Paper No.37, 'Judging Success: Evaluating NGO Approaches to Alleviating Poverty in Developing Countries' by Roger Riddell, and is one of four similar country studies. The other three, also to be published contemporaneously with this paper, are studies of Bangladesh, India, and Uganda.
