The fact that hunger and food security are fast becoming common phenomenon on the global scale, and the former most especially affecting developing countries, its imperative that all the efforts to eradicate hunger are monitored to ensure that they achieve their full potential. This study is aimed at making an analytical assessment of project implementation by NGO5 on hunger reduction. The main objective of the study was to establish the relationship between project implementation and hunger reduction in selected Sub Counties, Soroti district Uganda. The target population of the study was 180 and included community development workers, NGO projects co-coordinators, local political, religious, cultural and opinion leaders and the sample size was 118. Sampling of respondents was based on Sloven’s formula, and final research results proved that majority of respondents disagreed with the effectiveness of project implementation and hunger reduction. Research results indicated that there is a high positive correlation r=0.512 and a significance of P=0.000 between the project implementation and hunger reduction, meaning that the effectiveness of the project implementation has a great impact on the various efforts towards hunger reduction. Based on the research results, it was revealed that frequent and unpredictable public intervention in the agricultural sector deters private investment and limits the ability of farmers and businesses to access capital. Companies function best when regulations are transparent, mechanisms exist to enforce contracts, and policies are predictable. Non-governmental organizations will contribute to strengthening enabling policy environments for growth by improving the ability of governments to collect and analyze market information, training private sector trade associations in how to engage local and national governments, pressing for reductions in government controls on commodity prices, and supporting reform and implementation of policy and regulations that promote investment in the agricultural sector
