Non-governmental organization (NGO) is a term that has become widely accepted for referring to a legally constituted, non-business organization created by natural or legal persons with no participation or representation of any government. In the cases in which NGOs are funded totally or partially by governments, the NGO maintains its non-governmental status insofar as it excludes government representatives from membership in the organization.

NGO means Non Governmental Organozation

An organisation based on non-governmental support.

Activities

NGOs vary in their methods. Some act primarily as lobbyists, while others conduct programs and activities primarily. For instance, an NGO such as Oxfam, concerned with poverty alleviation, might provide needy people with the equipment and skills to find food and clean drinking water, whereas an NGO like the FFDA helps through investigation and documentation of human rights violations and provides legal assistance to victims of human rights abuses.

Non-governmental organizations need healthy relationships with the public to meet their goals. Foundations and charities use sophisticated public relations campaigns to raise funds and employ standard lobbying techniques with governments. Interest groups may be of political importance because of their ability to influence social and political outcomes.

Dear,


Non-Governmental Organizations, Non-profit organizations or Voluntary Organizations (NGO/VOs henceforth referred to as NGOs) have existed in one form or the other in India, and in other parts of the world, for a number of years. They seek to provide much needed services to their respective communities and otherwise help in attempts to alleviate and remove exploitation, poverty, deprivation and inequality.
