ABSTRACT
This research work is designed primarily to examine and assess the roles being played by non-governmental organizations in the development of rural areas. The work is also designed to identify the causes of the low rate of involvement of the non-governmental organization in the development activities and the possible ways of making them more ideally effective. The study was carried out principally on community self-help organization in Awgu local government area. A total population of 100 was selected as sample size through simple random sampling techniques. Primary and secondary sources of data collectively were used by the researcher which include oral interviews and questionnaires, textbooks, journals, document and newspaper. The researcher designed one hundred and twenty (120) questionnaires but one hundred (100) were selected retrieved. Statistical tools were also used for this research work. Questionnaires were employed in carrying out this research based on the historical nature. The relevant information which help and served as the foundation and construction of the questionnaires were the theory of development and rural development and related literature based on the roles of non-governmental organization in the development or rural area.

There is therefore no gain saying the fact that there have been some noticeable increase in educational institutions, health care centers, road constructions, water supply and so on as they strive to impress the people. Experience has shown that the provision and maintenance of amenities cannot be handled by government alone because it will be too onerous for government to satisfy the needs of all communities, bearing in mind the limitation of time and resource. It is therefore, necessary for the agencies of government to educate the people to appreciate the fact that the transformation of their country for enhancement of their standard of living should be a joint responsibility between the rural areas and the government or it’s agencies. This is why series of reforms and restructuring have been undertaken at local government level, all in an attempt to make it more responsive to the yearnings and aspirations of the people. It is also aimed to evolving an efficient and functional......
