The study assessed the levels of human resource aspects, examined performance levels of Child Development Centre (CDC’s) Projects and ascertained the influence of human resource aspects on the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city. It was hypothesized that there was no significant influence of human resource aspects on the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city. The study employed descriptive research designs; data were obtained from 72 respondents through questionnaires, interviews and follow-up interviews. The study revealed that generally, the level of human resource aspects in CDC’s in Arua city was high as shown by a grand Mean of 3.62 (72.4%), and the level of performance of CDC Projects in Arua city was high as shown by a grand mean of 3.78 (75.6%). The study further found out that human resource aspects: staff competences (B=.485; p=.000) and motivation (B=.347; p=.000) significantly influenced the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city while health and safety (B=.002; p=.689) had statistically insignificant influence on the performance of CDC projects in Arua city. However, overall, Human resource aspects (R=.673, R2=.452; P=.000) significantly influenced the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city. The null hypothesis that there was no significant influence of human resource aspects on the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city was rejected because the P-values of 0.000 was found to be less than the level of significance of 0.05. Therefore, it was recommended that CDC Projects in Arua city improve the levels of human resource aspects such as staff competences, motivation, health and safety to further increase their performance. Additional studies are carried out on other factors contributing to 54.8% in influencing the performance of CDC Projects in Arua city.
