Abstract: How do NGOs achieve their goals through decisions? This study examines the criteria used by NGOs in making decisions and the factors that influence such decisions. It focuses on one rural development NGO in India, known as Action for Welfare and Awakening in Rural Environment (AWARE). This case study, based on a longitudinal design, examines specific landmark project decisions in various socio-economic domains of this NGO, and reveals that this NGO has survived by compromising goals and yielding to its stakeholders. Thus, this NGO often made decisions based on its desire to survive rather than its goal to serve beneficiaries.
