dc.description.abstractDonor funded projects run by the Non Profit making Organizations play a very indispensable role in underdeveloped nations in ensuring that the community’s needs that are or may be impossible to be met by the government are met by Non Profit making Organizations. They also play a very important role in ensuring development in areas that are very less developed by providing to the needs of the society. Despite the Non-Governmental Organizations being very crucial in the developing countries like Kenya, their financial sustainability is a challenge since many rely on donor funding and at times some have failed to continue with their normal operations when donations ceases. The study’s main intent was to investigate the effect of financial management practices on financial sustainability of the donor-funded projects in the case of Windle International Kenya. The objectives of this study were: to establish the effect of budgeting control on financial sustainability of donor funded projects; to establish the effect of financial reporting on financial sustainability of donor funded projects; to find out the extent to which internal control affects financial sustainability of donor funded projects and to determine the effect of financial control on financial sustainability of donor funded projects in the case of Windle International Kenya. The study was carried out in Dadaab, Garissa county during the final half of the year 2020.The accounting process theory, theory of budgeting and agency theory were used to underpin this study.
