Definition and examples of NGOs
WIKIpedia defines an NGO as:
“Non-governmental organizations (also known as NGOs, nongovernmental organizations, or nongovernment organizations) are independent of any government. They are usually non-profit. Many of them are active in humanitarian or social areas. However, NGOs can also be lobby groups for corporations, such as the World Economic Forum.”
We call them non-profits for the most part, but it can be complicated. Many times NGOs get government aid and can also be lobbyists for government aid or lobbyists for powerful corporations.
