Every rural community in Nigeria should be seen as a panacea for development because of its strategic contributions to national development. Successive governments have made fragile efforts towards improving health care services, education and the economy, for the development of Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State. Unfortunately, all the efforts made did not achieve desired goal. Now, that the Boko Haram insurgency has subsided in Michika Local Government areas, the International Rescue Committee, UNICEF and Family Health International 360 have taken up some of the developmental challenges to compliment government efforts in reinstating the rural infrastructures. However, this paper focused on INGOs contributions on the provision of health care services, portable drinking water, renovation of schools and economic development. The study utilized both primary and secondary data and Chi-square was used to test the hypothesis. A sample size of 180 respondents was drawn for the study. Based on the findings, the International Rescue Committee has drilled 49 new boreholes and rehabilitated 18 old ones in 12 communities in Michika local government. UNICEF has renovated 14 primary schools, 15,000 learning kits and trained 510 class room teachers. Family Health International 360 renovated 5 primary health care centres, distributed mosquito nets, malaria vaccine and nutritious food supplements for malnourished children. By this, it means International Non-governmental Organizations has contributed 1% on provision of portable water supply, 1% on health care services and1% in educational development. This paper therefore recommends that, the federal, state and local governments of all nations should never neglect rural communities as they are the basic foundation for development. However, what International NonGovernmental Organizations did in Michika is worth emulation by the government.
