Abstract: In this study, the researcher studied the contribution of local non-governmental organizations on poverty alleviation in LAFOLE district. The study was guided by the following objectives; to evaluate the contribution of local NGO’s on poverty alleviation in Mogadishu, to assess the strategies for Poverty alleviation that the local NGOs use, to investigate the magnitude of the poverty after many NGO5 have worked on its alleviation. The research design used was cross sectional survey design. Data was collected from both primary and secondary sources using questionnaires and interview from a sample size of 80 respondents, from the target population of 100 households. Frequency, percentages and tables were used to analyze the data. The study indicated that there is a small contribution of the local NGOs on poverty alleviation in Lafole district. The study also revealed that there is only short term strategy put in place by the NGOs. The findings also show that poverty has not increased and neither has it been addressed. The situation on the ground remains the same. The study gave some recommendations; the NGOs should establish long termstrategies; such as households can work and set up a living for their own families without waiting any NGO’s help. This can be achieved through starting up some new income generating projects for some families in that area. The researcher also recommends that the NGOs have to recognize the role of women on poverty alleviation, because they also contribute to the survival of the households. Poverty reduction can be actively done by understanding the level of gender role and gender differences within households.
