Non-governmental organizations, which are usually referred as NGOs, are a very valuable part of the society. They are humanitarian groups and are independent from states as well as international governmental organizations. NGOs are mainly funded by donations; however, some are run mainly by volunteers.

NGOs aim at bettering the world and uplifting the underprivileged through projects that are run in a variety of fields such as education, health, humanitarian aid, sanitation, shelter and housing, refugee resettlement, animal welfare, among others. Non-governmental organizations are playing a very positive role in improving communities, developing societies and also promoting participation of citizens.

Currently, there are millions of NGOs around the world that are working in a number of projects. These range from the big and influential that are working at the international or national level to those that are small and are mainly focused at the local level.
