1. Inadequacy of Funds:
Civil society organisations are usually saddled with inadequate funds with which to pursue their common goals and objectives.
2. Embezzlement of Funds:
Money donated to run civil society organizations is usually hijacked or diverted to private pockets by those in leadership positions.
3. Restriction of Civil Society Organisation by Government:
Sometimes, the CSOs go extreme and pitch themselves against the government in power. They conduct their affairs as though they are at war with the state. This action of most civil society organisations makes government impose certain restrictions by denying them registration or authority to operate.
