The purpose of the study was to examine the influence of monitoring and evaluation system on the performance of projects among nongovernmental organizations in Uganda taking War Child Holland’s Livelihood project as a case study. The objectives of the study were to find out how organization’s capacity, planning and accountability affect performance of NGO projects. The study was both qualitative and quantitative in nature where data was collected through self administered questionnaire and face-to-face interviews from the management committee, center managers, local leaders and the project staffs under the livelihood project of War Child Holland. The data collected was analyzed using SPSS and the following were the key findings. It was revealed that Accountability was inadequately done by WCH to it stakeholders as many did not receive any financial reports from WCH and this affected the operations of the center managers and the general performance of the project to the largest extent. Similarly, the few number of staffs employed to implement this project coupled with absence of trainings greatly affected the timely and quality implementation of the project. The lack of human resource planning, absence of planning within departments and lack of a planning framework were stumbling block to project success. It is thus concluded that, an improvement in organisational capacity, planning and accountability is very important in ensuring project performance. The major recommendation is that, the organization should have a monitoring & evaluation plan to ensure regular data collection and analysis that enables corrective measures in all aspect of the project. Capacity building for staffs especially the community personnel should be done to enable them perform in their assignments
