Poor performance of projects in both the public and private organizations is not by chance, but the failures are because of classic project management errors and failure. One of these failures is resource management which have been embraced by both public and private organizations.  Resource plays a crucial purpose in any project. The specific objective of the study were to examine the effect of project resource management techniques on sustainability of donor funded internet connectivity projects in public schools in Bungoma County, Kenya. The specific objectives were to examine effect of resource allocation and resource forecasting on sustainability of donor funded internet connectivity projects in public schools in Bungoma County, Kenya. The study will be guided by four theories: resource-based view theory, resource dependency financial literacy theory, and theory of project constraints. The study will adopt a descriptive research design. The study targeted 54 public schools in Bungoma County, Kenya connected under the Education Broadband Connectivity Project. The schools have a total of the schools have a total of 54 ICT teachers and 54 principals who were the study unit of observation. The study used census hence 108 respondents were sampled. Questionnaires were used to collect data. The pilot test was conducted with 10% of the sample hence five ICT teachers and five principals. board members. This study will use content and construct validity. Cronbach's Alpha Coefficient was used to measure questionnaires’ reliability. Quantitative data was coded and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 28. Data was analyzed presented in tables. Project resource allocation affect project performance. Resource allocation aids in assigning resources to tasks throughout the life of a project. The project managers make efforts to thoroughly plan project resources. The project managers lack skills in the resource estimation in the communication industry which may hinder them from effectively estimating the resources required to implement such projects. Funds allocation should be based on based on actual budgetary requirements, the funds approval process must be clear and easily understood and there should be no bureaucracies involved in funds allocation.  This will create balance of resources within the project
