Community Based Organizations (CBOs) have performed a key role in complementing initiatives of governments towards meeting the basic needs of its citizens not only in Kenya. This was a descriptive study that employed both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Three sampling methods were used namely purposive, stratified and random. Purposive sampling was used to identify all the relevant CBOs while stratified sampling was applied on gender composition, nature of activities, level of performance, size of membership, geographical location among others while random sampling was utilized to identify CBOs within the various stratums. 14 CBOs were selected for the study from a population of 41 CBOs. Findings indicate that inaccessibility to resources from the corporate sector, presence of management structures and governance in CBOs among others has greatly influenced the ability of the CBOs to mobilize internal resources.
