The researcher established the extent to which institutional factors contributed to poor project implementation in most NGOs, Although several institutional factors influenced project implementation, this study nevertheless was limited to the influence of leadership, financial and human resources. Burundi was selected as a case study to understand the contribution of these variables to poor project implementation. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used to collect data, while the quantitative method was used to enlist information from individual respondents about the variables under study and this was done through questionnaire interviews and the data was analyzed using frequencies, percentages and correlation efficiencies. The study findings indicated how the BURUDI leadership contributed to poor project implementation through inadequate communication, non- participative decision making system and inadequate confidence and trustworthiness among members. In addition inadequate financial resource and human resource contributed to poor project implementation in Buyala Rural Development Initiative in jinja district. The researcher therefore recommends that the projects management should improve on the projects communication channels and there communication skills which will help in having making effective decisions and building of confidence and trust worth among members.
