What is a NGO?
A non-governmental organization (NGO) is a not-for-profit organization that is independent from states and international governmental organizations. First of all they are usually funded by donations. But some avoid formal funding altogether and are run primarily by volunteers. NGO's are organized on a local, national or international level. Furthermore, NGO's are highly diverse groups of organizations engaged in a wide range of activities. Therefore they are organized around specific issues, such as human rights, environment or health.
