The main purpose of this study was to assess the role of NGO’s in organizing Adapted Physical Education in Addis Ababa City Administration. Based on this purpose brief review of related literature and experiences of some countries were assessed. Descriptive survey method was used for the study. Data were gathered from facilitators, education and NGO Officials /experts/ community representatives and disabled learners. Data were collected from respondents through questionnaire, interview and observation check list. Sampling techniques employed for this study were purposive random and availability sampling. Appropriates statistical tools, (percentage and mean were used in order to analyze qualitative data while narration was used to analyzed qualitative data. The results obtained suggested that both the LNGOs and ENGOs are involved in providing assistance programmers for different developmental projects implemented in the city. Nevertheless, it was found that there is high concentration of NGOs and their projects on the previous drought prone areas without analyzing the current problems of the re city. The indings indicated that the majority of the NGOs gave more emphasis to the projects on capital investment having only limited amount of their projects spent on recurrent expenditures. Based on the need assessment of the communities, assistance was channeled through the local government, the NGOs, and through handing over operational projects to the respective beneficiaries. However, it was found that NGOs could never encouraged the local community to choose the type of assistance/service they need in terms of their priorities in their respective areas. The study further revealed that though efforts have been made in setting up coordinating committees for organizing the various activities of NGOs in APEs, they were entangled with many difficulties and did not make an effort to bring about close work relationships among key power actors. It was also found that there is no formal relationships among the NGOs and never share information regarding their intervention activities. The results obtained generally indicated that all the problems cited by the findings are closely related to lack of coordination which the local government has not incorporated NGOs into its policies and structures; and NGOs on their part are not organized to help the local government to further collaboration. On the other hand, even though attempts have been observed to monitor and evaluate educational projects, they were concentrated more on monitoring physical dimension or evaluation of infrastructure projects and ignore the sustainability, social dimension, and impact of expenditures. In addition, it was observed from the study that there are significant differences among the NGOs' project performance in different target areas of the city. Finally, based on the findings and conclusions, recommendations were made to address the problem under study.
