Non-Government Organisation

From Pindula

Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) are non-profit organisations whose objectives are usually developmental in nature. Most are funded by European and American donor organisations such as USAid and DFID.

In Zimbabwe, the most prominent NGOs are international non-profit organisations such as World Vision and Plan International. There are however several local NGOs as well.

There are only a few local NGOs that are also primarily locally funded, such as Higherlife Foundation
