|Title||Examining the Challenges that Nonprofits Face When Implementing Income Generating Activities in African Nations With the Institutional Theory of Nonprofits|
|Abstract||This study seeks to evaluate the challenges that international nonprofits face when helping individuals implement income generating activities (IGAs) in African nations with the institutional theory of nonprofits. The research conducted showed that the institutional theory of nonprofits was upheld. The institutional theory states that when market or government institutions fail, a community needs a voluntary redistributive organization to supply vital resources at no cost to the consumer. Eight qualitative interviews with nonprofits based in Africa were conducted and each organization stated that they had been successful in filling the gap left by market or government failure and are helping individuals gain access to vital goods through the implementation of IGAs. Poverty is one of the world's most pervasive issues, but the development of IGAs with the aid of nonprofits are a sustainable, long-term solution.|
