The study was about leadership challenges and management of community development projects in Uganda, the case of TPO Uganda SOCY Kabale District. The study adopted a case study research design, which employed both quantitative and qualitative research approaches to collect and analyze data. The study targeted beneficiaries, who were children, youths and caregivers. A sample size of 136 participants was selected from a study population of 167 respondents using purposive, convenient and simple random sampling techniques. Both questionnaires and interviews comprised the data collection instruments. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze quantitative data while content analysis was used to analyze qualitative data. Using multiple regression analysis, the study found a weak but significant association between leadership challenges and management of community development projects.
