Data were collected using the questionnaire and documentary instruments. Techniques used to analyze data were descriptive statistics, Pearson correction coefficient& Regression Analysis Model. 

Findings indicated that the correlation matrix indicated that the sum of Pearson Correlation(588**); with a p-value of which is 0.01 that less than 0.00, meaning it was a significant positive and significant strong correlation between monitoring and evaluation practices M&E plan, develop M&E tools (.190), Meaning a unit increase provide (19%) on NGOs projects Performance whose effect was(.117), while Gathering M&E data (.146), a unit increase provide(15%) on NGOs projects Performance, it had the effect of(.098), Analysis of M&E data (.049) a unit increase provided(4.9%)being the lowest contributor, while M&E reporting .251 a unit increase provide(25%) on NGOs projects Performance and lastly Use of M&E data .929, Meaning a unit increase provided (.93%) on NGOs projects Performance being the highest contributor, with a strong effect(.432).
