The altruistic nature and the work of Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are appreciated by communities at large. Their dedication especially in the area of managing child malnutrition and food insecurity in third world nations is commended because of the relative value they generate with their programs. The essence of this thesis is how closely the NGOs meet their program objectives; of significance is the ‘how’ NGOs go about in their role in addressing sustainability. The effectiveness of the NGO’s program in eradicating child malnutrition and food insecurity is the core theme of this dissertation.
