In South Africa a number of NGOs declared their commitment to the building of an effective democracy and broad participation in South Africa’s social, economic and political endeavours, beyond its first democratic elections in 1994. It became important for these organisations to govern themselves in a way which took responsibility for effective, accountable and democratic internal governance as this would indicate their commitment towards strengthening their credibility, legitimacy and impact as individual NGOs and as a sector. The aim of this paper is to provide a theoretical assessment of governance and sustainability arrangements in general. An overview of theories and paradigms, which regulate the governance of international institutions and NGOs in particular, will be provided. This theoretical exposition will provide valuable lessons of experiences assisting South African NGOs in enhancing their long-term sustainability.
