What Ugandans Think of Foreign Aid

A survey of what Ugandans think about foreign aid:

Ugandans really like aid …

nearly 80% of respondents … reported that they themselves have not directly benefited from aid, and nearly two-thirds of participants believed that more than half of aid dollars were not spent as intended …

Ugandans significantly prefer foreign aid over government programs … They view aid as less politicized, less corrupt, and more transparent than government programs. They also trust international organizations and foreign aid agencies more than all domestic government levels, including the popular president. And a large number of citizens support aid conditionality, where strict requirements must be met to receive future funds.

So, aid is not much good, but at least it is better that what their own government manages. And they support conditionality.
