K. Balaraju

Organizational effectiveness influences the NGOs performance in various important aspects like stakeholders’ satisfaction, expertise solutions in their area of operation, goal achievement and innovation. NGOs operate in order to improve their beneficiaries’ quality of life aspects. The present study focuses on the relationship between the effectiveness of NGOs and the quality of life experiences of their beneficiaries. Using standard stratified disproportionate random sampling method 10 NGOs were selected, further from the sample list of 10 NGOs 100 staff members and 300 beneficiaries were selected for the purpose of the present study. The result indicated that the effectiveness of NGOs and QOL of the beneficiaries are positively and significantly correlated. To be more specific “ Programme Effectiveness”, as a dimension of the effectiveness of NGOs was the strongest correlate of QOL, followed by “ Agency Appreciation”,  “ Innovation” and “Grass Root Impact”.  All the least correlated dimensions are “Target Group Involvement” and “Resource Appreciation”.
