Abstract

Community based organizations have been perceived as appropriate institutions to bring about rapid changes in the community. Always, the challenge to both the community and the external funding partner has been the programmes’ sustainability. How would the community’s achieved impacts be sustained? This question has been the major concern to most of development partners today. Most of communities and the funding agencies have taken measure to address this. The most frequently applied strategy has been forming local institutions/CBOs to take over when the funding programme transitions (phases out). King’ori community like many communities had benefited through King’ori Area Development Programme (ADP), an externally funded fifteen years’ programme since October 1997. King’ori community had formed the KIKULUNGE CBO in 2007 to sustain the development achievements to beyond September 2012 when the ADP would have left. The researcher together with King’ori community the exactly most felt achievements in each programme’s sector, the most contributing partners to the achievements with their exact contributions and magnitudes, and whether they were able to sustain those development achievements as one of the most important partner was known to leave in September 2012 and most importantly, what immediate action had to be done. The CNA and the resultant project answer this.
