Embracing the reasons for the failure of donor-sponsored English-teacher training programs is very critical since it precedes the revisions, improvements and quality assurance for the futuristic training programs. Ideating such philosophy, the current study concerns the blatant penetration with regard to the donor-aided training programs in Bangladesh. Conceptualizing the Organized Hypocrisy (OH) theory, the current study, particularly, explored to seek the answer as to how OH is trivializing the donor-funded English teacher training programs in Bangladesh. A systematic review process has been adopted concerning the donor-aided English teacher training programs, mobile learning theories and teacher development theories. The review yielded critical insights to apprehend the phenomena affecting the donor-sponsored training programs in the respective context. The study revealed that outright violation of donor's mandates and policies, and mainstreaming gaps resulted in the failure of the donor-sponsored training programs. Disputing the commitments from donor's part is identified ubiquitous in the training programs.
