Development of school infrastructure, availability of teaching/ learning and teacher training help improve the quality of secondary schools in Mogadishu Somalia. The purpose of the study was to investigate role of the nongovernmental organizations on reconstruction of secondary education in Mogadishu Somalia. The study was based on three objectives including; provision of teaching/learning materials on reconstruction of education, rehabilitation of school infrastructure and reconstruction of education and teacher training and development of education in Bendir, Somalia. The review of related literature was discussed in the light of study variables on the role of non-governmental organizations in development of secondary education. Descriptive survey design was employed to obtain a complete and an accurate description of situations, persons and events. The study was conducted in Mogadishu. The target population was 167 respondents comprising 100 local NGOs registered in Mogadishu; 12 Education umbrellas stakeholders in Mogadishu, 10 Directories of Ministry of Education; 15 School head teachers and 30 Parents and Community Education Committee per districts in Mogadishu. The samples were considered because they were key stakeholder in the provision of secondary education in the study area. The sample size for the study was 118 selected based on Slovan's formula. The data collection tools employed were questionnaires and interview guides. The findings from the study indicated that government has done little towards the provision of infrastructure needed to improve the quality of secondary education in the region. However, this is due to the difficult economic position that makes it almost impossible for government to do much. The study revealed that the NGO provision of school infrastructure has helped in the reconstruction of secondary education. NGOs in Benadir region of Mogadishu have contributed considerably towards the reconstruction of secondary education by providing teaching/learning materials that have had appreciable influence on the provision of secondary education. The study revealed a lot remains to be done in spite of the significant contribution by NGOs in this regard. The major conclusion of the study was that the NGOs have contributed considerably towards the reconstruction of education in Mogadishu. The researchers suggested recommendations of major importance as the intervention by Ministry of Education on schools provision for teaching/learning materials, schools infrastructure and the in-service teacher training programs. Also the researchers recommended the need to involve all education stakeholders, institutions and nongovernmental organizations to enhance the effectiveness of schools rehabilitation.
