Moreover, the partnership of SNGOs and INGOs may be based on the formers’ dependence on funding and thus lead to a determination of the agenda from outside (Kang 2010). Hence, “the acceptance of increasing volumes of foreign aid involves entering into agreements about what is done, and how it is to be reported and accounted for” (Hulme&Edwards 1997: 8). This consequently raises questions about the sustainability of such projects. Porter (2003) observes that due to the lack of Ghanaian funding available to NGOs, “there is a tendency for NGOs simply to jump to provide whatever foreign donors (including INGOs) demand” (136). This may eventually lead to discontinuities in the work at community level and to inappropriate programmes in the local context.
