Abstract

Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) face a future scenario where they can no longer rely on a system of international concessional aid as reference point for their role, work and continuity. This paper first examines the reasons behind the beyond aid scenarios for NGOs. The urgent and practical reason why NGOs must consider life in a beyond- aid scenario results from the decreasing volume and redistribution of aid finance. This paper then suggests some alternatives for NGOs to be sustainable in beyond aid scenarios. This paper thus concludes suggesting that NGOs should demonstrate their worth to government, business and the public on their own terms and reconsider themselves as social actors: not in terms of ends, but in terms of means.
