Recently, the NGOs (non governmental organizations) have taken a central place on global governance, especially on project development. They are in fact linked to the main centers of global decisions, either as consultants or as institutions leading projects throughout the world. Despite the fact that the best known ones are also the oldest and best structured, small ones are also proliferating at every corner of the globe. Besides this spreading, many contemporary theories have also proposed focusing on the trust relationships and on civic engagement as triggers to economic development, and on the benefits of associations as places that create and reproduce these characteristics. This research is based on the belief that this central place occupied by NGOs in development is tightly linked to the evolution of development theories. Our goal was therefore to analyze the changes that have marked these theories and their influence on the role played by the associations in development. Our analysis on the discussions of several French associations and their Brazilian partners shows a trend to boost the development (from an economic, social and personal point of view). It reveals that the main failures of action of these organizations are the predominance of a cultural look on development (with a somewhat direct association between the life conditions and cultural characteristics), the ambitions of personal development, and an organizational emptiness existing in their related communities
