dc.description.abstractFor the most part, Americans associate organizations such as CARE, Catholic Relief Services and Save the Children with efforts to alleviate the suffering inflicted by famine or natural disaster. Although relief activities continue to be an important aspect of many programs, American charities which operate abroad are increasingly involved in the field of development assistance. These agencies, often referred to as private and voluntary organizations (PVOs), are active in programs ranging from community development to family planning. Private organizations which choose to accept public funding must be held responsible for their use of those resources. At the same time, however, it is important that the autonomy of the PVO community be preserved. In its administration of the government/PVO relationship, the Agency for International Development (AID) has failed to find an appropriate balance between PVO independence and accountability. AID's bureaucratic structures are not compatible with small-scale rural development. Thus, new structures are required if the flexibility and independence of the private and voluntary sector is to be maintained.en_US
