Ryan Libre explains how to start a successful NGO.

Editor’s Note: In response to the overwhelming number of comments, author Ryan Libre has asked us to post this update on April 4, 2010:

“It is amazing to see how many people have seen and commented on this article. It is well beyond my expectations.

Most all of the 200+ commenters seemed to have overlooked steps 1-6 and went to funding as the beginning point for starting an NGO.

This approach will not be successful, in the short term or long term.

First, you need to do something, anything, yourself with what is locally available (step 1). It will give you experience,
credibility, and maybe even publicity. Start small and do what you can for a few months with what you have.

After this experience your goals and how to reach them will be more clear (step 3) and you can make an action plan (step 4) and a website or free blog (step 5) showing what you have done and a clear plan for what you intend to do.

Then when you leave a comment or send a mail about your NGO include the link. Without these fundamental steps it is unlikely anyone will seriously consider funding your NGO.

Best wishes to all your future NGO’s Ryan Libre

I’ve worked with NGOs for most of my life, and even helped start a few. Now, I’m venturing out to start my own NGO, Documentary Arts, Asia.

The following steps will help get your own NGO up and running:

Step 1: Test the waters.

Many new activists are ready to commit their lives to “the cause.” Some are even willing to die for it. Most of these enthusiastic newbies are nowhere to be found a few months later.

There’s no need to turn down the volume of your enthusiasm, but before starting your own NGO, consider joining one that does similar work for a while.

If starting your own NGO really is right for you, the experience of working for an established NGO will only strengthen your resolve and direct your passion.

Maybe you’ll find that NGOs are not your life calling after all. Better to learn that early on, before making a big commitment.

Step 2: Start on the right foot.

“The leader’s main job is to make themselves obsolete.” –Lao Tsu

Becoming obsolete should be the fundamental goal of all NGOs. You must constantly strive to work yourself out of a job.

Becoming obsolete works on two levels. In terms of your personal involvement, you should build the NGO to the point where it can function independently of your leadership. The long term goal of your NGO should be to solve a problem and thereby become unnecessary.

Put Lao Tsu’s advice into practice and you’ll be able to help more people in more profound ways, and enjoy every minute of the experience. If you try to maintain control, dependencies will develop, and once dependencies start they are hard to stop.

Dependency can leave NGO volunteers feeling trapped and sometimes even leave negative impacts on the people you are trying so hard to help.

Step 3: Clarify your goals.

Set clear and achievable goals for yourself and the NGO.

“Ending world hunger” is a great goal and looks good on your NGO’s t-shirt, but it’s not a problem you can seriously hope to solve.

Finding a niche is good place to start. Positive change usually comes from picking something small, doing it well and following through. A good example of this attitude in action is the Starfish NGO of Cambodia.

Step 4: Make an action plan.

A plan of action is your chance to make an NGO effective, address any potential negative impacts and make sure your NGO will attract donors and volunteers.

Make sure you are able to follow through with what you start. Think hard about your action plan. Hard work is important, but hard work without a good plan is a waste of time and money.

Step 5: Make a website.

It’s never too early to make a website for your NGO. A good website helps you to spread the word, attract volunteers, secure funding and establish a professional appearance. An interactive website can also minimize your need for meetings and micro managing.

Attention spans on the web are very short. Be clear and concise.

Be sure to make an online profile for your NGO at Matador, where you can tap into a network of thousands of potential donors and volunteers.

Some hosting companies give free hosting to NGO sites. Ask around.

Step 6: Get in the know.

Local knowledge is indispensable to every NGO. Even if you grew up in the city where you want to start an NGO, you still need to research and make contacts. Making solid local contacts and understanding the locals’ worldview is especially important if you want to work in a foreign culture.

Good use of local knowledge can really make an NGO effective. Without local knowledge, you may do more harm than good.

Step 7: Assess your NGO’s financial needs.

Money, when it does come, usually requires great amounts of paperwork and sometimes has strings attached. The quality of the work an NGO does and the amount of its funding are often inversely related. That is to say, the NGOs with less money do better work per hour and dollar spent. The crucial point is to to minimize your NGO’s need for money.

That said, money can be really helpful sometimes. Here’s how to get it. Filing for 501c (official non profit) status is a pain and involves costly lawyer fees. No need to waste your efforts there.

Get an established NGO to accept you under its umbrella. Tax deductible donations and grants will go to them, care of your NGO. Setting up this arrangement could be as easy as a 30 minute talk with your local peace center.

Now you are ready to ask for money from businesses, grant foundations, and governments. A Paypal donate button is a quick and easy way to accept donations from visitors to your website.

Step 8: Network, network, network.

Make friends with people and organizations doing similar work so that you can learn from their successes and mistakes. Networking also helps you to know when to team up and when to divide your efforts for maximum effectiveness. The links below are good places to start networking:

UNDP’s guide to NGO networking

Matador’s Grassroots NGO network

Step 9: Find balance.

Photo by Ryan Libre .

Be realistic about how much time you want to give to your NGO. Taking on projects beyond your comfortable limits won’t yield much benefit in the long run.

You are worth more to your NGO as a part time activist for 5-20 years than letting your passionate burn out in two years. Finding balance between work and personal life is key to success.

Step 10: Re-evaluate everything.

Take a step back and look at what you have done and where it is all headed. Take joy in what you have accomplished, but also make sure your NGO is not becoming self aggrandizing.

How much time, effort and money are being spent on the NGO itself? This is the biggest problem facing all organizations, non-governmental or otherwise.

Your own awareness is the best tool to avoid over-emphasizing the NGO to the detriment of the cause, but don’t hesitate to ask someone from outside of your NGO for an evaluation.

With constant awareness, you can keep your focus and resources flowing to your original goals.


Any volunteer experience can be rewarding. Starting your own NGO can make you feel totally fulfilled.

You will learn and grow as an individual and receive a profound sense of satisfaction not easily found in modern life.

I hope my insights, experiences and mistakes were of benefit. If you have any questions or comments please post them in the comments and I’ll be happy to reply.

    Great advice Ryan. From my experience tip #2 is the most challenging. NGO's would never exist if it wasn't for the founder's passion and sacrifice to get them off the ground. HOWEVER, as you point out, it is that same passion and sacrifice that can lead to micromanaging and an unwillingness to turn things over to those you set out to help in the first place. Like you said, creating a model that can be implemented and run by the locals should be your goal. It takes a very unique individual to balance the selfishness and selflessness that it takes to successfully start an NGO. Thanks for this piece Ryan.

    • fundsforngos

      Ryan’s listing of the steps to start an NGO is very comprehensive and simple. I would just like to suggest those people who intend to start establishing NGOs to come up with a sustainability plan. Although resource mobilization can be particularly challenging, start-ups can still raise small donations at individual-level to run their activities and maybe in a year or two they can be qualified to receive large grants from big organizations. But NGOs also need to be creative enough to visualize their organization in the coming 10 or 15 or 20 years. Where will the resources come then? This can lead to developing of a sustainability plan.

  • Sandhya Pant

    thanks for the great advice. it has indeed helped to spur me on.

    i am a nephrologist in training and by burning passion is to set up an NGO that will support patients who are living with chronic kidney disease.

    it is a chronic medical illness that it quite common world wide, but unfortunately the cost of medical care is beyond the reach of majority of its sufferers in my country.

  • Gayle Pescud

    Great article. This is straight-forward and solid advice.

    I also found idealist to be one of the best sites on development issues and opportunities.

    Another great site is Mango in the UK: a registered charity providing support in financial management to NGOs

    I found a brilliant resource: How to Build a Good Small NGO that was partly authored by Mango at It’s 79 pages of advice that you’re better off having before you start out.

    Having volunteered and worked for NGOs in developing countries, I think it would be doing a disservice to yourself and target communities if you don’t spend time volunteering or interning with an organisation in your field and geographic location of interest. You will learn if you’re cut out for the work and if the work itself is what you envisage it to be.

    I’ve noticed that many graduates want to jump straight into an NGO fresh from college or university. I do think it’s smarter to get experience in business (because managing an NGO requires the same skills and experience as managing a small business, but with about 1000 more unforeseen obstacles–working while suffering from malaria and with no electricity, for example) or a large well-organised NGO before embarking on their own enterprise.

    You will get the benefit of their experience, you will make invaluable connections, and you will learn about systems and processes that you can transfer to your own organisation.

    I have seen several small NGOs suffer from simple lack of experience and planning. It’s a shame because people have their heart in the right place.

    On the flipside, I have met several former business people who had no NGO experience but contributed invaluable know-how and skills to their respective NGOs; they had a lot of experience to draw on.

    The NGO I initially volunteered with and later worked for ( and was founded by two people who had MBAs in business and IT and spent years working for the best NGOs or multinational corporations before embarking on their own. Even so, it was a struggle.

    And while you’re getting this experience you have the luxury (which you won’t have once you get started) to plan. And that planning–financial and strategic–is the single most important thing you can do. Experience, plan, patience and hard work.

    Again, great advice in this article.

    I appreciate the tips thank you so much for the post.
    This NGO is a midwifery training and birth center for rural women providing comprehensive sexual / reproductive health education, prenatal, birth and post partum midwifery services, through a collaborative, intercultural approach. This center will provide low cost services to people that need it. The goal is to get the local midwives trained along side of midwives that come to volunteer in all the above services so we eventually aren’t needed or are just there as more of a resource center for them. The goal is to decrease the mortality rate here in Guatemala, Solola region. This is a new project and would welcome any help advise that someone may have. Thank you

  • ryan libre

    one question and answer

    Q “Primarily, I am concerned with how to approach other NGOs about coming under their umbrella as you talk about in your article online. I feel this would work best for my own NGO but I am not sure how to do this. Any suggestions?”

    A any NGO you have a connection with will be easiest. it doesnt even have to be an NGO working on the same topic as you. You need to convince them you will be financially, and otherwise very responsible. and you need to convince them you will add minimal paperwork and effort to their already busy jobs. Generally smaller to mid size NGO are quicker to decide and more willing to take risks. Often local “Peace Centers” have a variety of programs under their umbrella.

    Hope that helps a little

  • Gyan Bahadur Rana

    Hi!, I’m from rural Nepal and also from the poor family. I’ve been residing in the city but I love to visit villages and place to place. Due to my poverty, I moved to Singapore and live there for about 9 yrs.
    I’m very much interested in NGO to help poor people for simple needs, like: drinking water, walking paths, sanitory (toilets) and basic education. People live in the hill surely have drinking water problem especially from January to june (dry season). Due to this, people are suffered with dangerous diseases. Lack of education also is a hazardious to their life.
    This is how I would like to contribute some help through NGO to bring these people to the better world. Anyone, please suggest me of: how to start and how to mange the fund.?

    Thank you.

  • Grace

    am Grace from Kenya, i come from a region where FMG is practised and most of the local people still hold to the issue of girls not being so much learned, there are high rates of teenage pregancy and i attribute all these to lack of awareness and some times ignarance on the part of the parents and teenagers themselves. I would therefore love to start up an NGO whose objectives will be to help sensistize the public on effects of Female Genital Mutilation and help curb it in the affected areas, sensitize the importance of girl child education and curbing tenage pregnancy,
    need some advise on how to start and manage it and get funders so as to really reach these local people and help them change for the best………….it really pains my heart to see all these still happening.

  • Harsh Upadhyaya

    Hi Evrybody,

    We ,bunch of 4 to 5 guys are opening a NGO in Rajasthan for the upliftment of unpreviliged children .Statistics and my study show that in Rajasthan less than 45 % people are educated and they even dont know how to write their names.And even people are less inspired to teach their children,they think its wastew of time.So to do some influential change we friends have decided to open a NGO very shortly.The people who are intrested to join us can contact me on my mail id : I think its the time now to give back the society what it gave us and do a big change and youth can only do this.

    Respected Sir ,
    They say experience is the best teacher . I am very grateful to you for sharing ur years of experience with us .
    Sir , u have mentioned it is better to work under an NGO to find out if we really have the potential to carry our thoughts forward or not . Sir , I am a dental surgeon based in Kolkata , West Bengal . I wanted to start with an NGO where we will teach the underpriviliged children & their mothers about oral health . This is one aspect of health which is greatly neglected in my country as people r not aware that a lot of oral diseases can be prevented if they take good care .
    Sir , I will be very grateful to u if u could help me suggest organisations who r doing such voluntary work so that I can gain some experience from them . I would like to work with the concerned organisations .
    I will be highly grateful if u can guide me with my dream.

  • miriam

    Hello, I am Chery.

    Thank you for the information on how to start an NGO. I have already gone through the first step, “tested the waters” and I realy understand what it is to work in the communities and for the communities.

    I would like to start up an NGO in my area to help the disadvantaged girl children to access education and stay in school until completion because many girls especially in rural areas are pulled out of school especially at upper primary level for marriage, to perform house hold chores among other things . A case is a thirteen year old girl who was married off by her father to a seventeen year old man in a near by village in exchange for a few gifts(bride wealth). I have a heart felt drive to start up an NGO to pull out the community out of this trap and mentality so a sto empower the girl child.

    that is a little bit of my concept.

    i need some more guidance to build up on my idea and help me start an NGO.

    looking forward to more information.

    Happy new year.

I have a desire to help the poor childens living in the slum next to my place……i want to teach them how to learn……according to my knowlegde most of them go to schools……but honestly speaking sir here in india Govt. schools are not so effective.

I seek your guidence that is it necessary to open an NGO……as it is matter of small scale……They look to me the same as i was in my childhood…..i dont know about the world but i know about them they need help n even me.
    If you can it would be so kind of you to assist me.

Just very frustrated and felt so. You would know I meant, if you see the link’s I have provided and
    ecial-edition-rabhandhu-needaloo1-3.html and
    . i really wanted to do something , I have gone through your site and found there no special programs forGirl and Women Trafficking in India.
    I want to work on it so wanted to serve and start that service through an NGO with a different program. I would take the responsibility of funds gathering and all. I need your guide to start on with. I wanted to start a program for purely children and specially concentrate on those children who’s parents are prostitute. Because I dont want there next generation also to touch the same gutter either that cud be due to society which doesn’t allow their children to live or due to financially. Through which At least make an attempt to avoid or prevent future existence of such gutters.

    Second Thing is that which may be late but eventually I want to concentrate after good amount of research is on womens or young girls who had entered into
    prostitution and came out and finds no way to survive and because of it enters back into same Gutter. so for such people I wud like to provide a source of generating income.

    I hope there are people who are also thinking like what I am speaking and if wanted to support me in my mission else can guide me. I appreciate if they can contact me on

First of all I would like to apreciate you for your keen interest in Social Welfare being a management student. But There are so many difficulties in the way of establishing a Social welfare organization. We get many ideas for solving them from several source of information but very few of them are realistic. Luckily, even We get an idea which may be real, it’s Implementation is not easy.After all, founding an NGO is so difficult.

    I loved your article and under step 7, you mention how establishing 501 c3 for taxes can be a pain to get and how it is better to get an established NGO to take me under their umbrella. I think that is a good idea for someone who doesn’t want to deal with the hassle, but will my services be taken in as a subdivision of the NGO? or will I be considered as a small NGO within a larger established one? Can I file for a servicmark (trademark) for my services offered under the established NGO?

    This will help me along further with my project.

    the information you have provided here is very useful. in fact, most brilliant ideas have gone to waste since people have to abandon these ideas due to the lack of direction. sometimes, people like myself with the will and passion to contribute their quota to society at some point get frustrated even with the basic knowledge of what you want to do. in fact, with your help, i know i can make it because now, funding is not my worry any more: i will start small on my own. thank you.

    Dear Friends
    My Name is Brenda Ledwaba.I leave in SA and I have been sitting with this burning idea that is close to my heart about giving young girls and boys who had kids in their teen to be what they could have been if they did not have kids as teenagers.I will really love to see helping girld and boys around the age of 15 to 30 so that they can given a second change with guidence schooling and counciling and helping them to realise that they can still make it.I really believe there is a lot of clever and interligent girls and boys out there who need just that second chance.I also think that will help our country in the process of alliviating poverty and illiteracy.Can someone please help me to brain storm on this. Can I please get some guidence on how to start an NGO to assist this poor individual who just need a second chance to make it again and build up and grow our economy.

  • Mario Fontaine

    hi this is my project for haiti with an existing ngo to become soon it’s own ngo any help or thought is greatly is appreciated


    Summary Business Plan

    May 2010

    Mission and Priorities: Our mission is to provide homes and sustainable employment for Haitians in need.

    Our priorities are to establish communities of working families who’s employment will be supported through participation and agricultural programs. The combination of safe and secure housing and permanent employment opportunities will ensure that BelAyiti’s vision will be realized today and in to the future.
    For decades, Haiti has been plagued by economic instability, worsening health conditions, political insecurity, social strife, and remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The government’s swings between a fragile democracy or repressive dictatorship, internal and external historical factors, as well as its harmful environmental practices have helped to create a nation in which more than 70% of the population is unemployed, 45% are illiterate, 99% of the country is deforested, and health indicators are among the lowest in the world. Nevertheless, a common Haitian saying goes as follows: “Where there is life, there is hope.” Haiti’s people are resilient. Most continue to find ways to survive and eke out a living despite the odds.
    The world is acutely aware that the catastrophic events of January 12th have devastated Haiti even further. As of February 29th, the Government of Haiti’s Directorate of Civil Protection reported that “an estimated 222,517 people died and another 310,928 were injured.” Spontaneous settlements, or Internally Displaced Person (IDP) camps, cover Port au Prince and the some of the provinces’ open space areas. More than half a million people have emigrated out of the capital and are causing tremendous stress on the minimal resources of the rural areas. Approximately 300,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed, as well as public and government institutions, hospitals, churches, and schools.
    The Government of Haiti and its international partners have created the Action Plan for National Recovery and Development of Haiti as a guideline for the next twenty years. It is critical that this plan is coordinated with other efforts, such as those of the US State Department which is currently planning a US2.5 billion endeavor, and remains Haitian in terms of direction, coordination, and participation.


    In light of the current international interest in rebuilding Haiti and understanding of the colossal coordination efforts that will be needed, BelAyiti was created for the following purposes:
    - To build permanent houses for persons and families living in tent cities who have lost their homes due to the events of January 12th and thereafter
    - To build in accordance with guidelines as stated by the Government of Haiti, meet the minimum Sphere standards, as well as follow all applicable building and construction codes
    - Partner with reputable Haitian organizations, companies, and civil society committed to the betterment of the nation for all of its citizens to design, implement, and follow through with the initial project as well as ones to follow
    - Provide temporary and permanent employment opportunities during development and construction phases, as well as post-establishment phases that are sustainable, profitable, environmentally viable, and appropriate in every manner for those who will choose to participate
    - Other…


    The primary goal of BelAyiti is to provide permanent housing for every Haitian who was rendered homeless by the earthquake. The ambition comes from passion, dedication, as well as the understanding of the enormity of such a mission. Haiti must be rebuilt first and foremost by the Haitian people. By relying on local materials, labor, and knowledge, BelAyiti will ensure the economic benefits of its activities are enjoyed by the citizens of Haiti, particularly those in vulnerable and unstable economic situations. BelAyiti will directly engage qualified local construction companies to build low-cost earthquake and weather resistant housing in accordance with all applicable standards and guidelines. These engagements will create employment, effectively increase the standard of living, and will use raw materials originating in Haiti for the construction of the housing thereby simultaneously minimizing import/export costs.

    BelAyiti will serve as a development program which will operate in association with Veterimed, a Haitian-based NGO focused on agricultural development in rural Haiti. BelAyiti will partner with Veterimed to promote agricultural development through offering stable employment for residents of the new homes that are outside of the Port au Prince catchment area. The primary settlements will be constructed in rural areas in order to ease the overcrowding in Port au Prince while taking into consideration all necessities of a functioning and integrated society. The newly constructed homes will be provided to residents of the tent cities who meet the qualifications and voluntarily commit to participating in Veterimed’s (and others’) development programs, such as sustainable dairy farming and other programs.


    Each night that Haitian citizens must endure in unsanitary, dangerous, and inhuman make-shift tents is a louder and louder alarm towards action. The process, rapid but steady, has begun and support is necessary at every turn. The following are the general steps and guidelines to the realization of BelAyiti’s mission:

    Fundraising and Increasing Awareness: BelAyiti will conduct an ongoing, worldwide awareness campaign through direct advertising, establishing an internet presence, and pursuing corporate and other partnerships for financial purposes. The goal of this campaign will be to educate the general public about the current situation in Haiti and BelAyiti’s activities, as well as to raise funds for BelAyiti’s start-up and general operations.

    Construction Operations: Upon selection of optimal land, BelAyiti will solicit bids from local qualified construction companies for construction services that cannot be performed by the relocated families. BelAyiti will initially rely on Veterimed staff to coordinate construction operations. Building plans have already been developed by a local Haitian architect and proven effective and functional by other international experts.

    Identify Eligible Families: BelAyiti will identify residents of IDP camps/tent cities for whom relocation into rural areas would provide the greatest benefit. Relocated families will be expected to participate in the development programs as well as all aspects of relocation, including the construction of the new homes when possible to create a sense of ownership.

    Support, Monitoring and Evaluation: BelAyiti will conduct ongoing follow-up visits to ensure proper adjustment of relocated families, determine whether homes are properly maintained, and participation in the development programs is effective.

    Further Stages: BelAyiti will continue its development projects as long as it remains needed and efficient.


    BelAyiti is a subsidiary program of Veterimed (mentioned above) while it obtains 501 (c)(3) status. In addition, it is pursuing partnerships with other reputable NGOs operating in Haiti with similar missions. BelAyiti was founded and is currently led by Mario Moise Fontaine. The administrative structure is outlined as follows:

    Board Members:
    Executive Director: Mario Moise Fontaine
    Managing Director: Lenka Heller
    Finance Director: Lee-Siane Jeager
    Coordinating Director: David Rampy

    For more information about BelAyiti, please contact Mario-Moise Fontaine by email at or by telephone (347) 267-4260.

    I met Thomas Nuger from France who gave me a lot of encouragements. He said that I should try searching well experienced people on internet that can support me to go and work at an Ngo in some other asian or african parts….

  • innocent Msani

    Hi, i am so intrigued with your job well done on starting your NGO. I am also a person who is very passionate with the community especially young people. Looking at the community that I live in many young people are exposed in bad things just because of home situations not at good state, some are not educated but some are with their metric but have no ways they can further studies. I want to start an NGO whereby I would be focussing on metriculants making ways so that they can get a chance to study further, creating ways to find donors and people who can assist in helping them, even starting a campaign where I would be visiting schools to motivate those who do metric at that particular year, my focus is more based to those who cannot afford varsity payments more especially an orphaned children.

    We work closely with the stakeholders to encourage sustainable development in the communities where it works and thereby meet the population’s real needs, whilst respecting their culture and their priorities. To do this, it promotes initiatives where the population participates actively in identifying its own needs, as well as the defining and implementing actions that help to improve their standard of living. It also focuses its work on the people who are most at risk and marginalized within the poor population, whose rights are therefore worst-protected. This is often the case for women, children, native populations and people who live in urban and in rural areas, as well as people with disabilities. In addition,
    Step for Sustainable Development Foundation (SSDF runs a social action area from its central headquarters located in the district of Jhenaidah Bangladesh. This targets neglected and unprotected collectives where disease and lack of economic resources go hand in hand. Protection for human right violation and all shorts of social discrimination actions are supported and promoted here, linked to resolving the most urgent and usual needs of these collectives, providing and facilitating access to the medication they need for one-off or continuous support..
    In the present context of Socio economic condition and violation of Human rights and mal exercise of Democratic practice in Bangladesh, all of the social workers, civil society men and Think tanks are in a great frustration how the country may get rid from the present trend. In this situation Step for Sustainable Development Foundation (SSDF have decided to protect the people of Jhenaidah district from Bangladesh this vexatious situation.
    As you have devoted yourself in the noble work to establish the deprived community in the society by empowering them to claiming their entitlement from the concerned department of the public or Private sectors.

    I want to start an NGO here in my country, Cameroon.

    Can I start off by getting an office before creating a website?
    How can I get funding from my government and from foreign bodies?

  • chinyard ngo

    We are writing this letter on behalf of CHINYARD, hereby we would like to enlighten you about our organization. CHINYARD is operating in North Karnataka region over the last 21 years. Chinyard is one of the development initiatives rendering service to poorest of the poor. Chinyard’s prime vision is to bring destitute people into main stream society. Because underprivileged masses are deprived from economic, social and institutional opportunities. Chinyard was registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act-1950. For overseas assistance purpose Chinyard was registered under Ministry of Home Affairs for the Foreign Contribution and Regulation Act-1976.
    Chinyard’s operation is recognized in drought prone areas; most of the marginal and poor farmers depend only on agricultural, due to scarcity of rains land remains fallow. Therefore peasants are not getting adequate employment opportunities here. Hence farmers are migrating towards metropolitan cities for search of livelihood options. Consequences of parent migration children are deprived from education. Chinyard organization has been implementing several social development programmes for upliftment of destitute people. These programmes are as follows.
    1. Promotion of Livelihood Activities: Under this programme Chinyard has organized various livelihood activity trainings like tailoring, dairy farm, poultry, embroidery and vermin-compost training to women self help groups. After the training Chinyard has helped them startup their own enterprises and provided market linkage to sell their product in the market.

    3. Women Empowerment: Under this programme Chinyard formed 5243 women self help groups and provided bank linkage. Chinyard believes in UNITY IS STRENGTH keeping this quote in mind Chinyard organized women into self help groups. For this accomplishment Chinyard has received state level second award. For women self help group member’s skill up gradation purpose Chinyard has organized various trainings and workshops.
    4. Biodiversity Conservation and Natural Resource Management Programme: Under this project Chinyard formed watershed committee, community based tank management committee and village forest committee this projects prime objective was to create awareness about Biodiversity Conservation and Natural Resource Management. For this accomplishment Chinyard received National level productivity award, given by central agricultural ministry of India.
    5. Capacity Building Training for Self Help Group Members: Under this programme Chinyard has given training on the concept of SHG, Credit Management, Unity and Cooperation, Problem Solving, Panchayat Raj System, Right To Information Act, Leadership and Effective Communication, Book Keeping and Account Maintenance.
    6. Road Safety Awareness Programme: By this programme Chinyard has taken initiative to provide road safety awareness among vehicle owners, school and college students through street plays, photo exhibitions and dramas.
    7. Eradication of Violence against Woman: Through this programme Chinyard organized several human rights awareness programmes among rural people under this Chinyard gave awareness about gender sensitization and mitigation of dowry system. And those who were facing violence Chinyard has provided legal assistance for them.
    8. Tribal Handicraft: Through this programme Chinyard has taken initiative to conserve ancient tribal handicraft, and give technical training to upgrade their handicraft skills. Promote market linkage to sell their product in the market. Chinyard has given training to 300 Kasuthi Artisans, 107 Mirror Artisans and 40 Quilt Production Training.
    9. Scholarship Amenities to Merit Students: Through this programme Chinyard has been providing scholarships to economically background merit students to continue their studies through this yearly 150 merit student’s benefit.

    13. Drinking Water Project: Under this project Chinyard has given bore well repair training to 35 Tribal women to take initiative to repair bore wells.
    14. Documentation: Chinyard has been keeping day to day activity reports, if higher authorities, donors require Chinyard will submit the report immediately. Chinyard has done rating care by M-Cril rating agency, Mumbai and also done external evaluation of rural women empowerment by Mahamad Guttigar. Chinyard has published annual reports. Chinyard provides opportunities to researchers to do a study at the organization.
    15. Human Resource: In Chinyard’s organization there are 32 well qualified, experienced staffs working over the last 21 years. Chinyard’s staff has passion towards social work and work for underprivileged development upliftment purposes.
    Now we are unable to carry out the above activities, due to lack of financial sources. In this connection we are requesting your assistance for further development work. Your one contribution can bring brightness among the underprivileged masses. Your kind donations will get tax exemption under 12(A) and 80G Income Tax Act-1961. Further any more information, visit our organization website:

    Hello Sir,
    I already started NGO from 2008, I am 21year’s young boy i already faced lot of problem to create and established it from every where also for registration, after long try i get registration from W.B govt. we work on “Education”, “Health”, “Nature & Wildlife”, “Special activities”, “Legal”,” Small Industry & Handlooms”, “Sports”, and also published a Little magazine “Satta”. To establish this Organization I need a lot of money and help but i can’t get this. How can I properly run this organization because any person can’t work and help me without money, because they also responsible for there family. Now a day I also faced this problem, my family member tell to me that choice NGO or FAMILY Responsibility. What may I do now Family Responsibility/ Family Business/ My career/ My Dream now I filling so madness. Please suggest me properly what may I do now.

    • ryan libre

      hello Biswajit,

      “Education”, “Health”, “Nature & Wildlife”, “Special activities”, “Legal”,” Small Industry & Handlooms”, “Sports”, plus a magazine is a lot to start up overnight and alone. why not choose only one or maybe 2 things. you will have more time for your family and need less money, less stress. if that one thing goes well then you can consider expanding your programs.

      as the article says “Positive change usually comes from picking something small, doing it well and following through.”


    Dear Sir,

    I am based at tribal area where people are not getting well education,food,dress,shelter etc. I want to open an NGO in my locality to extend my help in this regard which needs some guidance,suggestions….

    Your Guide on how to get started with a NGO is comprehensive and if followed with a little adjustment to fit in the local environment one is, I doubt if the NGO will fail after it’s kick-off.
    I have a passion for helping mankind, for this reason and among others, I have the aim of starting a NGO with the sole purpose of helping people that falls within the objective of organization. I hope to intimate you as to how things go on the program.
    Thanks and please keep up the good work.

    Your article is truly amazing. Everything looks simple here, But I’m sure it’s got a lot of intricacies in itself. I am 23 years old, working for an It company in Bangalore. I alwayshave felt the need to do something for people who are in desperate need for help. I wish to start a small NGO with an objective – Like light up a small village(Max 100 in number), OR get them good drinking water OR start a small work place for them there itself so they start earning on their own. I wish to do this as part time with the support of my friends. How realistic is this plan of working in an IT comany 5 days a week and dedicate few hours on weedays and fully on weekends for the NGO work? Do help me with your insights on this. Thank You

  • mian azhar uddin

    hi sir,
    im the student of business administratio(HRM) & will chose the area of HRM in next semester.before i start to ask many of things about working with an ngo,i will give u a quick glance at why i feel to write u a brief column.
    respected sir,on 25 oct 2010,an old man met me & show me some pages.on those pages it was written by a doctor that this man is very poor and his little daughter is being treated in lady reading hospital peshawar pakistan.his little daughter has a major disease of heart.that man said to me that he is retired militia & has spent approx 25 to 35 years there at the govt job but still he has nothing to pay in order to vaccinate her daughter & save her life.each injection costs Rs.4500 & 50 injections will be needed to treat & save her daughters life.he further told me that i have lost one daughter before & this is the 2nd one.i have found deep sorrow,disappointment,worry & fatigue in his eyes.he has no money so there is no doctor to save her little childs life but doctors are available only if someone has money to pay.that old tired man has no cell that i take his number & forward it to someone compensator.the students of our hostel has contributed upto 500 thousand as a whole only.
    i,with great enthusiasum,want to work with an organization for non profit to cope the cases like this one that i saw today.why not an ngo make a mechanism with hospitals & hospitals to put forward those critical patients really in search of need to an ngo.this mechanism must be considered very important however this is already an idea which need a credible plateform.
    what should the poor people do in order to reach different ngos & get compensated & what the ngos should do to reach at the step doors of those who really need u?i shall be waiting for ur response!warm regards,azhar!

    Hi Ryan,

    I was wondering why you suggest not applying for 501c3?
    I am in the process of trying to start an NGO in Costa Rica. I know that most people who donate want it to be tax deductible. I think that could be a huge drawback of not applying. Do you have a different experience?
    Also I saw you are working in a foreign country as well. Did you register the NGO in both the US and the foreign country and which was the principle one? I think this is a little confusing and I would like to hear the adv and disadv if you have any insights.

    Thanks for the great advice!

    Hello Ryan!

    I’m so excited about this site. I am really planning towards having an NGO in Nigeria. I’ve gotten an insight at least on how to start an NGO through this article. A step forward will I take to move on with my passion and desire.

    I will appreciate more if I will have more counselling on how to go about it.

    My passion is to set up a school that will give the poor privilege to have the same education as the rich in the society. This is because in every child lies destiny and a purpose. but due to poverty, privileges were denied those kids. And also to set up a Craft Centre that will bring out the potentials in kids and make them who they really are.

  • Anyika John

    Dear Sir

    I am indeed grateful for your information which I am certain will benefit my future endeavours of starting an NGO within Trinidad, in a community that is undergoing poverty to a great extent.

    The aims of the NGO would be to establish projects that can generate funding for the community to assist the needy persons. This will be done first through an encouraging process to allow togetherness and unity of community members. They will be taught how to use resources within their reach such as the sourcing of hidden talents, skills, abilities and ideas to contribute to the development of special programmes that can provide the desired assistance the community needs, as well as, to serve as a means of providing employment opportunities.

    Communities lack unity and support and most times less dependence on government agencies for funding can be adapted. The thing is that people just need to be taught how and that is the main purpose of the Organization.

    How should I get started with this kind of action and can I begin without first becoming registered?

    Kindly advise me in the matter.

    Ms. Anyika John

      Good question.
      Yes many people and all companies want the donations to be tax deductible.
      What im suggesting is at first you work with a established NGO to accept donations for your NGO. If your NGO goes well in the future you can do your own paper work to accept them yourself.
      about 2 countries… i would find umbrella NGOs in both at first. the the country you get most of your donations from make your main and do the paperwork in that country.

      hope that helps

    We are a group of enthusiastic young individuals about to start an environment related NGO in Mumbai-(India). We are facing some problems raising the funds. The whole plan to start an NGO its mission, Vision, is ready the only reason for little delay is the non-availability of funds.

    Our first Campaign in Mumbai has already been started.

    Also we are looking forward for a training place where we can learn more about enviorment conservations. Different Ways to make this planet better place to live as well as to increase life of our planet.

    We will be more than happy if you can provide us some viable solutions on how to raise money and how to get best information or from where can we get training free for our volunteers

    Awaiting your reply on this issue.

    Hi -
    I’m helping an NGO in the Philippines shore up their organization, website, etc and there is an American interested in helping them fundraise in America. However, everyone who has indicated an interest in donating of course wants the US tax deduction.

    I am trying to find a lawyer in the US to help us register as a 501c3 there, but also happened upon your article which suggested piggybacking on another non-profit. How does one do this?

    Are non-profits in the States really willing to do this – and is it legal to do this in the US? There is one organization I would be willing to contact there if they would not think we were trying to put a fast one.

    Thank you,

    • ryan libre

      opps, see below, Ryan

  • ryan libre

    Hello Deb,

    the short answer is, it is legal and there are US based NGO willing to do this.
    If will be in essence a sub-project of their NGO.
    The longer answer is, it helps to know the NGO personally so they can trust you and an NGO that is working on something related. Also having experience in relation to the amount of money you plan to get ups your chances.

    If it is a large organization that you plan to start and is sure to be around for years to come it may still make sense to start off as a 501c yourself from the beginning.

    Hope that helps, Ryan

    I want to start an NGO here in my country, delhi INDIA.
    I have set my goals and I have good action plans.
    I know the project is a very attractive one that volunteers and donors will be so interested in.
    Can I start off by getting an office before creating a website?
    How can I get funding from my government and from foreign bodies?
    Like I said, the project is so interesting that i can only share it individually.

    I hope to get an answer and I will write again.

    Thank you for being there. Your 10 steps are just so awesome!

    Hi there,

    Just got off the phone with one of my classmates. We have a plan to set up an NGO in Rwanda—However, I want my NGO to be partly a profit oriented entity.

    My question is—Can I team up with a pure nonprofit organization?
    Is it really a pain to set an NGO from the word Goooo?

    Thank God my classmate is a lawyer, so we save the lawyer fine, what else should I worry about? What is your estimate in $ value do you think the entire process can take?

    I really liked your 10 steps!!

    Many thanks,

    while making research, I visted your website which I found very interesting to my future planned.
    I have planned to really formulate an organization to combat the growing trench in human trackficking on the African continent as whole. Many people including girl teenagers are been trackficked and used as sex slaves and other domestic servants all over the world. it has becomes a profitable endeavors involving so many officials which I believed is illegal and is geting alarming. I would like to seek advise(s) from you as to how, where and what to start with. I will appreciate all efforts.

    Hi Ryan;
    It was refreshing to read your article. Though I really had to question the veracity of some of the request that you were getting & the maturity of some of those people. I want to help rescue female infants that are being murdered everyday in India. I know that is an ambitious goal. But every day I wake up and think “How many infants died today? What could she have contributed to this world. Given a Life, Health, Education,Nurturing. Who did we loose today?”
    I am a 59 year old grandmother, I am retired. I can spend the rest of my life doing this. When I am gone by then some of my girls will have graduated from college and they will change the world, They will continue the mission to stop Female Infanticide in India,
    Also I wanted to hire& give a living wage w/cottage and meals, with Medical care to Widows from the holy city of Vrindavan waiting to die. They may have been shunned by their families and society, but they can be Nanaji’s and help love and care for the little girls. This is what I felt called to do.

    Thank You

      • Suresh.D

        Dear Sir,

        I am Suresh.D from Bangalore, India. I found your mail ID as I was trying to search the net to find out the details in opening a NGO in India. I was really fortunate to find you mail ID and the support you were offering to all the organizations.

        Dear Sir, I would like to brief up about my self in order to make you understand more about me. I was actually working hard from my teenage and I was very eager to help others from my every month salary. I used to save my every month salary and I would be waiting to help others till a reasonable is saved in my account. I was basically focusing to help for the children’s education, Hospital expenses for the low income groups, helping with little financial for the poor house who used to take care of Aged persons, Helping social organization who used to take care all handicapped children’s.

        Since all these years I was helping the needy with my salary, now all of a sudden I lost the job after which I find very difficult to give the same kind of help. I really feel sad of myself that I am unable to help others as these needy people expect me for some financial help and material help from my side. My efforts for searching on new jobs goes in vain as the salary are of very low.
        Seeing these situations, I decided to open an NGO in India in order to help others to the maximum level. Dear Sir, I need your help to guide me through a proper channel. I have a place of my own to run this NGO organization . I can take up this opportunity to run this organization provided if you help on this matter. I would be also really happy to work under you if you have your own NGO organization anywhere else. I would be really grateful to you if you could provide me a valuable solution for my goals that is yet to be achieved.
        If you really wish that we could join our hands to, then please leave your contact numbers so that I can call you and keep you in touch in order to build up a strong relation with you.
        Looking forward to hear from you,

    Dear Mr. Phillip Moore,

    I am a person who has been directly working in the non-profit sector for over 15 years. I was the CEO of an NGO in Sri Lanka for about 15 years and in 2009 I left that organisation to pursue my Masters degree in Business Administration where in I specialised on non-profit management. After completing the MBA, and with my previous experience in the non-profit sector, I was interested in setting up an NGO of my own and after few months of careful planning I have just set up Navoda Lanka Foundation as an NGO operating in Sri Lanka..

    I set up this NGO with absolutely no resources, only with my previous experience and contacts. Now I am looking for funding opportunities/ grants/ donations etc. in order to get the basic things in place. My initial requirement is to set up a small office for the NGO with basic requirements and to employ about two people to work on a full time basis till we get the organisation bit matured. I am looking for initial institutional capacity development support for about an year.

    I am wondering if you could help me in this regard. Are you in a position to support my NGO with some seed funding to set up and develop capacity to function as a full fledged NGO.

    I am attaching my CV for your kind information, which will give you an idea of my experience and achievements in the NGO sector.

    I shall be very thankful to you for any support from you in this regard.

    I look forward to your kind response.

    Dear Mr. Phillip Moore,

    We are running an NGO in Kigali – Rwanda, and our aim is WOMEN ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT! The Economic Empowerment of the less privileged women aims at building and strengthening the capacity of these women through training and provision of group revolving loans that create capital for such women to enable them engage in gainful income generating micro projects in order to become economically stable.
    Why women?
    Women reinvest 90% of their income in their families and communities, compared with men who invest only 30% to 40% (World Bank). Women are also more likely to use their profits to help the poor and are more likely to hire other women to work to work for them; they are also more likely to repay their loans than men.

    We are currently looking for funds to construct training centre!
    Looking forward to your kind consideration!

    Hi Ryan,
    We are a group of people with a vision to work for the poor and weak children & women in the world around us. Since my teenage I was eager to work with a good NGO or Christian mission, but I never got the chance. As a Christian I know how good it is to serve the poor & weak, but for the lack proper information and encouragement I was stopping. Now I thank you for your good suggestions, I have got a new strength and goal to begin my own NGO. We are a small group of people equipped with this idea to help the needy and serve the helpless. We even have not registered our NGO till date but by this month we will complete all our paper work (govt. responsibility) and start work on the field.
    We will always need your suggestions & guidance to run further.
    Thank you Ryan;

    • Pradeep

      Hi Sanjeev,
      What about taking an undertaking from people you train to donate to your charity once they have got a job?
      A very small amount would go a long way to help you do your work better.
      Have you tried approaching industrial houses for money? It is a good PR for them to state they do charity work.
      You can contact me through my email address if you wish to.

    Dear Ryan,
    My name is Albert Linton Owusu. I am a citizen from Ghana, West Africa. I read a few of your articles on the web and I was enthused. My desire to set up an NGO has been re-ignited and it is against this back drop that I want to gather more information from you to enable me realize my dream of helping humanity through the establishment of an NGO .
    The concept of my NGO is to set up a night reading school for the children in my area. I live in the northern part of the country; a predominant Muslim community with a high poor academic rate. Credible investigations conducted revealed that almost 90% of school going age find it difficult to read let alone understanding the concept of what is been taught them. This phenomenon when not confronted and eradicated to the background could bring hardships and embarrassment to these children who are the leaders for tomorrow.

    Please, how do I succeed in my quest?

    Can some one help me get the commercial corresponding e-mail address of Ryan Libre? He is a great person.

    NGO’s Non Government Organizations
    A non-governmental organization (NGO) is an organization that is not part of a government and was not founded by states. NGOs are therefore typically independent of governments. Although the definition can technically include for-profit corporations, the term is generally restricted to social, cultural, legal, and environmental advocacy groups having goals that are primarily noncommercial. NGOs are usually non-profit organizations that gain at least a portion of their funding from private sources. Current usage of the term is generally associated with the United Nations and authentic NGOs are those that are so designated by the UN.

    Because the label “NGO” is considered too broad by some, as it might cover anything that is non-governmental, many NGOs now prefer the term private voluntary organization (PVO).

    A 1995 UN report on global governance estimated that there are nearly 29,000 international NGOs. National numbers are even higher: The United States has an estimated 2 million NGOs, most of them formed in the past 30 years. Russia has 65,000 NGOs. Dozens are created daily. In Kenya alone, some 240 NGOs come into existence every year.

    The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the world’s largest group of humanitarian NGO’s.

    Though voluntary associations of citizens have existed throughout history, NGOs along the lines seen today, especially on the international level, have developed in the past two centuries. One of the first such organizations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, was founded in 1863.

    The phrase non-governmental organization came into use with the establishment of the United Nations in 1945 with provisions in Article 71 of Chapter 10 of the United Nations Charter [1] for a consultative role for organizations that neither are governments nor member states – see Consultative Status. The definition of international NGO (INGO) is first given in resolution 288 (X) of ECOSOC on February 27, 1950: it is defined as ‘any international organisation that is not founded by an international treaty’. The vital role of NGOs and other “major groups” in sustainable development was recognized in Chapter 27[2] of Agenda 21, leading to revised arrangements for consultative relationship between the United Nations and non-governmental organizations.[3]

    Globalization during the 20th century gave rise to the importance of NGOs. Many problems could not be solved within a nation. International treaties and international organizations such as the World Trade Organization were perceived as being too centered on the interests of capitalist enterprises. In an attempt to counterbalance this trend, NGOs have developed to emphasize humanitarian issues, developmental aid and sustainable development. A prominent example of this is the World Social Forum which is a rival convention to the World Economic Forum held annually in January in Davos, Switzerland. The fifth World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in January 2005 was attended by representatives from more than 1,000 NGOs. [4]

    Types of NGOs
    There are numerous possibilities to classify NGOs. The following is the typology the World Bank uses 1:

    Operational NGOs
    Their primary purpose is the design and implementation of development-related projects. One categorization that is frequently used is the division into relief-oriented or development-oriented organizations; they can also be classified according to whether they stress service delivery or participation; or whether they are religious and secular; and whether they are more public or private-oriented. Operational NGOs can be community-based, national or international.

    Advocacy NGOs
    Their primary purpose is to defend or promote a specific cause. As opposed to operational project management, these organizations typically try to raise awareness, acceptance and knowledge by lobbying, press work and activist events.

    Nongovernmental organizations are an heterogenous group. A long list of acronyms has developed around the term ‘NGO’.
    These include:
    INGO stands for international NGO, such as CARE;
    BINGO is short for business-oriented international NGO;
    RINGO is an abbreviation of religious international NGO such as Catholic Relief Services;
    ENGO, short for environmental NGO, such as Global 2000;
    GONGOs are government-operated NGOs, which may have been set up by governments to look like NGOs in order to qualify for outside aid;
    QUANGOs are quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisations, such as the W3C and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which is actually not purely an NGO, since its membership is by nation, and each nation is represented by what the ISO Council determines to be the “most broadly representative” standardization body of a nation. Now, such a body might in fact be a nongovernmental organization–for example, the United States is represented in ISO by the American National Standards Institute, which is independent of the federal government. However, other countries can be represented by national governmental agencies–this is the trend in Europe.

    Evolutionary stages of development NGOs
    Three stages or generations of NGO evolution have been identified by Korten’s (1990) Three Generations of Voluntary Development Action. First, the typical development NGO focuses on relief and welfare, and delivers relief services directly to beneficiaries. Examples are the distribution of food, shelter or health services. The NGO notices immediate needs and responds to them. NGOs in the second generation are oriented towards small-scale, self-reliant local development. At this evolutionary stage, NGOs build the capacities of local communities to meet their needs through ‘self reliant local action’. Korten calls the third generation ‘sustainable systems development’. At this stage, NGOs try to advance changes in policies and institutions at a local, national and international level; they move away from their operational service providing role towards a catalytic role. The NGO is starting to develop from a relief NGO to a development NGO. 1

    NGOs exist for a variety of purposes, usually to further the political or social goals of their members. Examples include improving the state of the natural environment, encouraging the observance of human rights, improving the welfare of the disadvantaged, or representing a corporate agenda. However, there are a huge number of such organizations and their goals cover a broad range of political and philosophical positions. This can also easily be applied to private schools and athletic organizations.

    NGOs vary in their methods. Some act primarily as lobbyists, while others conduct programs and activities primarily. For instance, such an NGO as Oxfam, concerned with poverty alleviation, might provide needy people with the equipment and skills they need to find food and clean drinking water.

    The International Freedom of Expression eXchange (IFEX), founded in 1992, is a global network of more than 60 non-governmental organizations that promote and defend the right to freedom of expression.

    Public Relations
    This section is a stub. You can help by adding to it.

    Many international NGOs have a consultative status with United Nations agencies relevant to their area of work. As an example, the Third World Network has a consultative status with the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). In 1946, only 41 NGOs had consultative status with the ECOSOC, but this number had risen to 2,350 in 2003.

    Activist events
    Greenpeace protest in Brasília (Brazil) in December 2004.
    This section is a stub. You can help by adding to it.

    Project management
    There is an increasing awareness that management techniques are crucial to project success in non-governmental organizations. 3

    Management of non-governmental organizations
    Two management trends are particularly relevant to NGOs: diversity management and participatory management. Diversity management deals with different cultures in an organization. Intercultural problems are prevalent in Northern NGOs that are engaged in developmental activities in the South. Personnel coming from a rich country are faced with a completely different approach of doing things in the target country. A participatory management style is said to be typical of NGOs. It is intricately tied to the concept of a learning organization: all people within the organization are perceived as sources for knowledge and skills. To develop the organization, individuals have to be able to contribute in the decision making process and they need to learn.

    The relationship among businesses, governments, and NGOs can be quite complex and sometimes antagonistic. Some advocacy NGOs view opposition to the interests of Western governments and large corporations as central to their purpose. But NGOs, governments, and companies sometimes form cooperative, conciliatory partnerships as well.

    Not all people working for non-governmental organizations are volunteers. Paid staff members typically receive lower pay than in the commercial private sector. Employees are highly committed to the aims and principles of the organization. The reasons why people volunteer are usually not purely altruistic, but self-serving: They expect to gain skills, experience and contacts.
    There is some dispute as to whether expatriates should be sent to developing countries. Frequently this type of personnel is employed to satisfy a donor, who wants to see the supported project managed by someone from an industrialized country. However, the expertise these employees or volunteers may have can be counterbalanced by a number of factors: the cost of foreigners is typically higher, they have no grassroot connections in the country they are sent to and local expertise is often undervalued.2
    The NGO-sector is an important employer in terms of numbers. For example, by the end of 1995, CONCERN worldwide, an international Northern NGO working against poverty, employed 174 expatriates and just over 5,000 national staff working in ten developing countries in Africa and Asia, and in Haiti.

    Large NGOs may have annual budgets in the millions of dollars. For instance, the budget of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) was over $540 million dollars in 1999.[5] Human Rights Watch spent and received US$21,7 million in 2003. Funding such large budgets demands significant fundraising efforts on the part of most NGOs. Major sources of NGO funding include membership dues, the sale of goods and services, grants from international institutions or national governments, and private donations. Several EU-grants provide funds accessible to NGOs.
    Even though the term ‘non-governmental organization’ implies independence of governments, some NGOs depend heavily on governments for their funding. A quarter of the US$162 million income in 1998 of the famine-relief organization Oxfam was donated by the British government and the EU. The Christian relief and development organization World Vision US collected US$55 million worth of goods in 1998 from the American government. Nobel Prize winner Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) (known in English as Doctors Without Borders) gets 46 percent of its income from government sources.5

    NGO Registration Methods – 1

    1. Trust 2. Society, and 3. Non profit Company

    In India non profit / public charitable organisations can be registered as trusts, societies, or a private limited non profit company, under section-25 companies. Non-profit organisations in India (a) exist independently of the state; (b) are self-governed by a board of trustees or ‘managing committee’/ governing council, comprising individuals who generally serve in a fiduciary capacity; (c) produce benefits for others, generally outside the membership of the organisation; and (d), are ‘non-profit-making’, in as much as they are prohibited from distributing a monetary residual to their own members.

    Section 2(15) of the Income Tax Act – which is applicable uniformly throughout the Republic of India – defines ‘charitable purpose’ to include ‘relief of the poor, education, medical relief and the advancement of any other object of general public utility’. A purpose that relates exclusively to religious teaching or worship is not considered as charitable. Thus, in ascertaining whether a purpose is public or private, one has to see if the class to be benefited, or from which the beneficiaries are to be selected, constitute a substantial body of the public. A public charitable purpose has to benefit a sufficiently large section of the public as distinguished from specified individuals. Organisations which lack the public element – such as trusts for the benefit of workmen or employees of a company, however numerous – have not been held to be charitable. As long as the beneficiaries of the organisation comprise an uncertain and fluctuating body of the public answering a particular description, the fact that the beneficiaries may belong to a certain religious faith, or a sect of persons of a certain religious persuasion, would not affect the organisation’s ‘public’ character.

    Whether a trust, society or section-25 company, the Income Tax Act gives all categories equal treatment, in terms of exempting their income and granting 80G certificates, whereby donors to non-profit organisations may claim a rebate against donations made. Foreign contributions to non-profits are governed by FC(R)A regulations and the Home Ministry.
    CAF would like to clarify that this material provides only broad guidelines and it is recommended that legal and or financial experts be consulted before taking any important legal or financial decision or arriving at any conclusion.

    Formation and Registration of a Non -Profit organisations in India
    1) Trust
    2) Society
    3) Section-25 Company
    Additional Licensing/ Registration

    I. Trusts
    A public charitable trust is usually floated when there is property involved, especially in terms of land and building.

    Legislation : Different states in India have different Trusts Acts in force, which govern the trusts in the state; in the absence of a Trusts Act in any particular state or territory the general principles of the Indian Trusts Act 1882 are applied.

    Main Instrument : The main instrument of any public charitable trust is the trust deed, wherein the aims and objects and mode of management (of the trust) should be enshrined. In every trust deed, the minimum and maximum number of trustees has to be specified. The trust deed should clearly spell out the aims and objects of the trust, how the trust should be managed, how other trustees may be appointed or removed, etc. The trust deed should be signed by both the settlor/s and trustee/s in the presence of two witnesses. The trust deed should be executed on non-judicial stamp paper, the value of which would depend on the valuation of the trust property.
    Trustees : A trust needs a minimum of two trustees; there is no upper limit to the number of trustees. The Board of Management comprises the trustees.

    Application for Registration :
    The application for registration should be made to the official having jurisdiction over the region in which the trust is sought to be registered.

    After providing details (in the form) regarding designation by which the public trust shall be known, names of trustees, mode of succession, etc., the applicant has to affix a court fee stamp of Rs.2/- to the form and pay a very nominal registration fee which may range from Rs.3/- to Rs.25/-, depending on the value of the trust property.

    The application form should be signed by the applicant before the regional officer or superintendent of the regional office of the charity commissioner or a notary. The application form should be submitted, together with a copy of the trust deed.

    Two other documents which should be submitted at the time of making an application for registration are affidavit and consent letter.

    II. Society
    According to section 20 of the Societies Registration Act, 1860, the following societies can be registered under the Act: ‘charitable societies, military orphan funds or societies established at the several presidencies of India, societies established for the promotion of science, literature, or the fine arts, for instruction, the diffusion of useful knowledge, the diffusion of political education, the foundation or maintenance of libraries or reading rooms for general use among the members or open to the public, or public museums and galleries of paintings and other works of art, collection of natural history, mechanical and philosophical inventions, instruments or designs.’

    Legislation : Societies are registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, which is a federal act. In certain states, which have a charity commissioner, the society must not only be registered under the Societies Registration Act, but also, additionally, under the Bombay Public Trusts Act.
    Main Instrument : The main instrument of any society is the memorandum of association and rules and regulations (no stamp paper required), wherein the aims and objects and mode of management (of the society) should be enshrined.

    Trustees : A Society needs a minimum of seven managing committee members; there is no upper limit to the number managing committee members. The Board of Management is in the form of a governing body or council or a managing or executive committee

    Application for Registration :
    Registration can be done either at the state level (i.e., in the office of the Registrar of Societies) or at the district level (in the office of the District Magistrate or the local office of the Registrar of Societies).(2)

    The procedure varies from state to state. However generally the application should be submitted together with: (a) memorandum of association and rules and regulations; (b) consent letters of all the members of the managing committee; (c) authority letter duly signed by all the members of the managing committee; (d) an affidavit sworn by the president or secretary of the society on non-judicial stamp paper of Rs.20-/, together with a court fee stamp; and (e) a declaration by the members of the managing committee that the funds of the society will be used only for the purpose of furthering the aims and objects of the society.

    All the aforesaid documents which are required for the application for registration should be submitted in duplicate, together with the required registration fee. Unlike the trust deed, the memorandum of association and rules and regulations need not be executed on stamp paper.

    III. Section-25 Company
    According to section 25(1)(a) and (b) of the Indian Companies Act, 1956, a section-25 company can be established ‘for promoting commerce, art, science, religion, charity or any other useful object’, provided the profits, if any, or other income is applied for promoting only the objects of the company and no dividend is paid to its members.

    Legislation : Section-25 companies are registered under section-25 of the Indian Companies Act. 1956.

    Main Instrument : For a section-25 company, the main instrument is a Memorandum and articles of association (no stamp paper required)

    Trustees : A section-25 Company needs a minimum of three trustees; there is no upper limit to the number of trustees. The Board of Management is in the form of a Board of directors or managing committee.

    Application for Registration :
    1.An application has to be made for availability of name to the registrar of companies, which must be made in the prescribed form no. 1A, together with a fee of Rs.500/-. It is advisable to suggest a choice of three other names by which the company will be called, in case the first name which is proposed is not found acceptable by the registrar.

    2.Once the availability of name is confirmed, an application should be made in writing to the regional director of the company law board. The application should be accompanied by the following documents:
    Three printed or typewritten copies of the memorandum and articles of association of the proposed company, duly signed by all the promoters with full name, address and occupation.

    A declaration by an advocate or a chartered accountant that the memorandum and articles of association have been drawn up in conformity with the provisions of the Act and that all the requirements of the Act and the rules made thereunder have been duly complied with, in respect of registration or matters incidental or supplementary thereto.

    Three copies of a list of the names, addresses and occupations of the promoters (and where a firm is a promoter, of each partner in the firm), as well as of the members of the proposed board of directors, together with the names of companies, associations and other institutions in which such promoters, partners and members of the proposed board of directors are directors or hold responsible positions, if any, with description of the positions so held.

    A statement showing in detail the assets (with the estimated values thereof) and the liabilities of the association, as on the date of the application or within seven days of that date.
    An estimate of the future annual income and expenditure of the proposed company, specifying the sources of the income and the objects of the expenditure.

    A statement giving a brief description of the work, if any, already done by the association and of the work proposed to be done by it after registration, in pursuance of section-25.

    A statement specifying briefly the grounds on which the application is made.

    A declaration by each of the persons making the application that he/she is of sound mind, not an undischarged insolvent, not convicted by a court for any offence and does not stand disqualified under section 203 of the Companies Act 1956, for appointment as a director.

    3.The applicants must also furnish to the registrar of companies (of the state in which the registered office of the proposed company is to be, or is situate) a copy of the application and each of the other documents that had been filed before the regional director of the company law board.

    4.The applicants should also, within a week from the date of making the application to the regional director of the company law board, publish a notice in the prescribed manner at least once in a newspaper in a principal language of the district in which the registered office of the proposed company is to be situated or is situated and circulating in that district, and at least once in an English newspaper circulating in that district.

    5.The regional director may, after considering the objections, if any, received within 30 days from the date of publication of the notice in the newspapers, and after consulting any authority, department or ministry, as he may, in his discretion, decide, determine whether the licence should or should not be granted.

    6.The regional director may also direct the company to insert in its memorandum, or in its articles, or in both, such conditions of the licence as may be specified by him in this behalf.

    IV. Special Licensing
    In addition to registration, a non-profit engaged in certain activities might also require special license/permission. Some of these include (but are not limited to):

    A place of work in a restricted area (like a tribal area or a border area requires a special permit – the Inner Line Permit – usually issues either by the Ministry of Home Affairs or by the relevant local authority (i.e., district magistrate).

    To open an office and employ people, the NGO should be registered under the Shop and Establishment Act.

    To employ foreign staff, an Indian non-profit needs to be registered as a trust/society/company, have FCRA registration and also obtain a No Objection Certificate. The intended employee also needs a work visa.

    A foreign non-profit setting up an office in India and wanting staff from abroad needs to be registered as a trust/society/company, needs permission from the Reserve Bank of India and also a No Objection Certificate from the Ministry of External Affairs.

      Dear Noor, I am from Pakistan. I want to clarify one thing. This thing does not seem to fit into scope of an NGO rather it looks like a charity project. You should think it of a project and should not make NGO. with this project you can get equal support as that of NGO. You can get donors from your personal connections. In your case you need money and group of trust worthy people in pakistan to work on this project.

      We have started an NGO called HUMANISTAN… website is

      At the moment we cannot offer any support in any capacity as we are establishing ourself but I can give you advice. If you need to talk further please contact me

    Hi, thanks alot for your guid which has opened my mind.i want to start a NGO on:
    1:children whose parents can not pay for their school fees due to dificult life they  are facing.I feel the pinch because i was one among those children.It was real paining me when i entered the class then i had to be chased out because of not paying school fees.

    2: helping those local (small) farmers in rular areas whosuffer from  hunger due to happening of heavy floods or strong sun burning  (drying crops) which lead to very very poor life as you know most of  local farmers they depend on the harvest to get cloth,medication,food,shelter and every thing.I also know the situation bacause my parents are peasants too so i passed through such a life.

  • Fideliajeffry

    i want to start an NGO  on the campaign against high rate of divorce in Nigeria ,my country and the in the world at large. i know it may be a very huge challenge but i believe my campaign can bring the rate down to the bearest minimum.
    the reason behind this project is because a broken home especially in africa has affected the african child negatively and has brought their self confidence down and sense of belonging. The pain the children feel is so strong that may affect their future life style.
    My children are victims of this type of situation and im not happy seeing my children loose concentration in school and its giving me serious concern.
    i know alot of children out there are presently going through such pain of violence in their homes and seperation of both parents. i have passion for this project and wish to go out there and campaign against divorce and make it the very last option instead of the first resolve. What must i do first?

  • Ezbargblor

    I read your ten steps on starting an NGO, very informative. Presently, I am helping a school in one of the countries in  West Africa. My first initiative was to start with a little stipends for  eight teachers in a Junior High School, their salaries usually come two to three months late. This lateness caused most of the teachers to leave the classrooms to seek other avenues for fundings. I have been helping them now for the past three months, I intend to continue this for the rest of the academic year, 2011-2012.  I just purchase a generator to supply electricity to the school, this should help students to learn how to  use computers in the classrooms. The generator that I purchased, is the only generator in the whole town.  All of the funds come out of my pockets.
    There are about 200 students enrolled in the school. I am trying to set up an NGO, that will help to continue to help out the school in question, espcially, when my help comes to an end in September of next year.  Please advise as to how to proceed to setting up an effective NGO to help in the areas of education and health.
    Thanks again for the great ideas  to help others in need.

  • Azam Khaan

    I am by reading all your experiences and advises regarding the NGO. Now the question is this ,that for my cause i don’t have any money in my hand.But i would like to start the NGO, in two fields 01 is education for the poor people and second is health. I am belong to the country where there is much more discrimination, as religion wise. We here are in minority under the high command of Muslims.Our religion is Christianity .Here people hate us, So if we don,t work on education and health.we will be smashed by them.
    This is my ambition to pull our people up.
    I real need help from outsiders, Here people will not help me in this regards, So then what should i do in this critical position.
    I am from Pakistan, city Lahore, Province Punjab.

    thanks and regards,

      It more seems a self help thing.  Create awareness in people, offer them low cost way to keep their street clean. Be in touch with your local council responsible for cleaning streets. If they are not working properly, raise voice over this issue. If such council does not exists then make some plan or proposal to establish such thing. hope it helps.
      also please visit my NGO website related to human right etc.

  • Robert Rostad

    Want some advice? Consider defining what a NGO is, even once. You’ve used the acronym, but never defined what you’re talking about. I know I could look it up myself, but I don’t think I will. That’s your job as a technical writer. 


    I want to open an orphanage and equally shelter street kids.what should i do

  • Dmatoke

    thank you very much for the above information. Am glad that I landed on this site.

    A couple of questions to you: 

    At what level should one think of having their NGO registered?
    Any qualification(s) required for one to start a NGO?



  • Guest

    I work for a NGO.  We focus on HIV & ABUSE.  Its amazing how the two are linked.  By the way, I don’t mean amazing in a good way, rather a sad state of hand-me-downs…. The connection is shocking and drastically calls for remedy

    Our HIV Campaign Logo is: One 2 Many = One more HIV infection is one too many! 
    Our Abuse Campaign Logo is: Enough IS Enough = STOP Abuse & Domestic Violence!

     After years of testing and counselling HIV, a prominent subject kept surfacing…..  Abuse.  Hence our research and drive towards implementing prevention training and the supply of tools to lead the current statistics towards a decline.

    We are sponsored by Eskom Western Cape to educate Local communities.  We teach people of all ages how to profile relationships as well as providing information to those who are in abusive  relationships, as well as leading such victims to safety , should the situation be beyond repair.

    We have are extremely privileged to live in a country where the law is so stringent as far as family protection goes.  The Domestic Violence act of 1998 is based on law that we should all be proud of.  

    The Family Protection Order is available to anyone in an abusive situation (Emotional and/or physical.  Obtainable by Men, Women and Children.  Married or unmarried, living together, separated as well as ex lover etc… etc… etc…


    Nowhere near enough people know that a Family Protection Order even exists…

    People have problems, they go to a lawyer if they have the finances, many stay in the situation due to the fact that they cant afford such a costly procedures and abuse in these traps escalates.   

    A Protection Order assists the victim in obtaining support as well as maintenance.  Lawyers costs are not incurred, all services are free from the court.  A victim simply goes to their local magistrates court and follows a few easy steps:

    1.  Asks for the clerk  of the court – in Domestic Violence.
    2. Explain the situation to the clerk.
    3.  He/she will assist in filling out the forms – Application for a Protection Order
                                                                                                Section 4(1) of the Domestic Violence Act
                                                                                               1998 (ACT No.116 of 1998)

    The courts are very helpful, everything is explained in detail and the procedure is very simple.  There is help available, you just need to ask…

    Unfortunately too many people are abused, more women are abused than men and more often than not, this abuse over-flows onto the children.  Too many of us, “WE” our society, stand back and do nothing.  We fear involvement! 

    One in three women are or have been affected by abuse.

    Please pass this information on to others, if you are not able to assist, please at least share this education.  I costs nothing at all, just a moment of time.

    Should anyone require further information on the Protection Order and how to go about obtaining one, please feel free to contact me.  I have more information and I’m happy to assist where I am able.

  • Banuri Hanumanthrao

    Name: Stop female infanticide
    As part of a sociology/anthropology, Im trying to raise awareness about female infanticide in India with hopes that we can find a way to help end this practice.

    Infanticide is the killing of infants. In India, female infants are killed because of the fact that they are female. Males have a higher status in society because they are the members o…f the family that bring in income. Also,… at the time of an Indian woman’s marriage, a dowry must be paid to the parents of the groom. This is typically a large sum of money. If an Indian family has more than one girl, it is likely that they will become bankrupt.

    Females are killed in a number of ways. After birth, a mother or father may kill the girl with methods like suffocation, starvation, or feeding her poison. On the other hand, if a mother finds out before her child is born that it is to be a female, she may have it aborted. Although abortion is legal in India, aborting a fetus on the basis of gender is illegal.

    The country of India has taken some steps in trying to ban the practice of infanticide. Many adoption sites have been placed around India where unwanted baby girls can be left for others to take care of. Many other couples around the world seek to adopt these babies.
    Contact Info: B. HANUMANTH RAO
    (M): 09246391027

    We plan to make a event called ” RUN/WALK FOR WOMEN 2KM” that deals with the aspects of female infanticide and its consequences. More info to follow.

    We are making awareness of “RUN/WALK FOR WOMEN 2KM” which is an extremely powerful event that gives insight into the devastating conditions female infanticide is inflicting on the nation of India. We will be making it in ____________________. If you have any interest, please contact me for the exact place and date/time. Please be there!

    Dis group is totally dedicated to those people who CARES for a GIRL child. As we all know that there is no future of this world w/o the GIRLS. So To give respect to this beautiful creation of GOD n to salute those parents who’ve daughters in their home, JOIN… POST… PROMOTE… dis group…

  • Fa26mu

    I appreciate your insights in  starting up a successful NGO, we started a n NGO now six months ago, called Global Media Group, with main objective of  development communication i.e. bringing on board issues that would never surface on the mainstream media yet they  concern the lower person in the rural ares that are not easily reachable by many mainstream media.

    We are young graduates in Mass communication, funding is currently our main hindrance to  our propelling to higher heights. How would you advise our team.

    Please, we shall be happy for your response ,

    Thank you!

  • James Presley

    i want to start an NGO for helping people of all age groups but more especially the hopeless prisoners of which some are even innocent but made to offer hard labor for the rich yet they did nothing, the sick in hospitals, poverty stricken areas in Uganda where people even lack what to eat in life so because of that they resort to become street beggars because of endless wars created intentionally by wealthiest men and women in this world, the abandoned children on the streets, in Baby homes etc and also buying a big chunk of land and construct on it a school for the needy children and a big hospital to offer free treatment of heartache, liver diseases and many other things which fall in that category, for, why in the world do people own millions and billions of dollars, Euros, Pounds etc, on their bank accounts yet many are lacking even a single 5oo shilling to at least buy a bottle of water for survival? Why oh Dear Good Samaritan? your advice is highly appreciative, and if you don’t mind help to show how one can raise money to start such a big thing? James PresleyMukono-Kampala Uganda. Email Adress

    A.E. Anyanwu, Esq.

    I hold LLB, LLM, BL and working in a Telecom company. I want to start an NGO with the name Human Rights Awareness Education and the main aim is to teach human rights issues particularly fundamental rights as enshrined in the constitution and other rights in some legal subjects like torts, contract, criminal law etc.  I have observed that apart from poverty, my country men and women do not know their rights, they are therefore being cheated and their rights trampled by the elites and government functionaries.  A citizen who knows his/her right can fight for it and he/she cannot be easily cheated or have rights easily violated.  This awareness is equally part of development of a Verile and enlightened society. Please i need your kind advice how to start. My email: anyanwu1960@yahoo:disqus .com, phone +23408030839807. Thanks.

    • Rajar7

      hi Jasmin, Its good to know about your cause. I would advise you to go through following website, I think they are doing similar sort of work. You cannot give mummy papa to most of children but in my opinion you can do it in two ways

      1) Making people aware of adoption, encouraging adoption especially to families who are childless. Firstly you should create awareness in society secondly you should be willing to coordinate between people willing to adopt and orphan houses etc.

      2) Make schools and nurseries like SOS. You may need to follow their model and help them or even make your own NGO about this but I think you should follow their model. their website is 

      I also have made an NGO but it is in its early phase. Also please support us and spread the word about us.

      If you need further advice, you can contact me at

  • Peace Udobang

    Hello. I am a final year student in a federal University in Nigeria. I’m presently working on a project which aims at inculcating adolescent girls with sexual consciousness alongside leadership skills to make them become sexually conscious and self-confident female leaders. This is in a bid to ensure a reduction in the rate of teenage and unwanted pregnancies and to resuscitate the moral values and standards of young girls, to  produce assertive women.In the long run, the project would metamorphose into an NGO. The main challenge is funding, so, please educate me on how to get sponsors. Thanks as I await your positive response.

I want to work with the community now, but the time commitment would mean that I would have to alter my course studies. What do you think?

  • aisha baba-ahmed

    Hi, my mum and I have just had our ngo registered, it primarily will help help to enpower women and girls(education,divorced women,vocational training,orphans, etc). Women in nigeria (especially the uneducated) find it hard to find an occupation that will support them and their families, divorced women with children to care for find it even harder, and most times resort to sending their kids out to hawk petty items for profit, thereby exposing these children to all sorts of dangers. There is an org here called NAPTIP that has been set up to watch and take action against these vices but its not doing nearly enough. Our NGO wants to help blur these lines. But the question is how to take off. We know what we want to do, but we are lost on how to begin. Any help will be greatly appreciated. At the moment I am in the process of doing a little networking, and will soon arrange an awareness seminar for our local women in our home town of Kaduna.

        Hello!!! I hope that this letter reaches you on a pleasant note and in good spirit as well. I am Malome Gomez Escote from The Philippines. If you are watching international news last week The country Philippines has been declared state of calamity and most our major cities has been destroyed and lost their houses. Because of this disaster we encountered stayed at the evacuation area for a week and just waiting from the government to gave us foods, medicines, clothes, water and other needs. But a it is only three days… In the evacuation area we encountered hunger and sickness.

        After the calamity passed away… I realize that we have to do something for our countrymen especially to our neighborhood who suffered so much from that typhoon and lost their houses as well as lives. Currently we are planning to put up NGO’s here in the Philippines concerning the following 10 missions:

        Feeding the poor
        2. Giving Medicines to those who need it
        3. Senior Citizen who are not loved and no houses
        4. Giving relief goods consistently
        5. Support the poor students that want to go to schools
        6. Save mother nature to lessen the disaster
        7. Children’s Ministry
        8. Reaching the un reached remote area for medical missions as well as educate them
        9. Giving them employment or a livelihood program
        10. Preaching Gospel of God so that our countrymen realize and aware that we should put God first in everything.

        I have read your comment on one of the blogs under NGO’s and find you that you have same passion like us. We are looking for someone that knows how to lead us or to support us in this kind of mission so that somehow if it will not disappear at least it will reduce the suffering of our Filipino people who are really affected in the coming disaster that coming our way.

        I am looking forward that we shared a same passion to help our both countrymen.

        Thank you.

  • Denny Webb

    Regarding Step 7, is it really a good idea to put yourself under another NGO? Here in Cambodia NGO practically rhymes with “corruption” as the administrators and workers of so many drive around in $200,000 Range Rovers and live in luxurious villas. I found this article because I’m a software developer and would like to share my trade skills in an in-demand field (which can easily operate without borders, so without the corruption that afflicts so much other international trade here) and have considered opening a school. I can’t imagine trusting any one of the NGOs I’ve seen here to properly manage money people would donate to this cause. It would vanish in a wink to “administrative costs”, mostly of dressing children up to look poorer than they are to illicit more sympathy and larger donations with which to buy more iPhone 5s (selling like hotcakes here at $1500 a piece, and you can bet it’s not poor farmers buying them) and the like.

    I fully respect NGOs that operate for the good of the people, but how does one easily tell them from those that operate for the good of the founders?

    I am Damilola Raymond , a Progressive youth of Africa . The Youths of Africa in the recent years have been subdued to oppression by the government and organisational bodies with education , work , and general well being . Statistically , 45% of the youths of Africa tend to run to other countries far away to begin a life for themselves because of these reasons , Another 45% of the youths of Africa are not being forced to be independent at a premature age which leads to various criminal activities like robbery , prostitution , internet fraud and so on . I want to set up an NGO call AYDPPU ( AFRICA YOUTH DEVELOPMENT FOR PEACE ,PROGRESS AND UNITY ) Which will help give a voice to the the youths , reduce crime rates and riots which may lead to loss of lives . Please join me and other youths who need to be heard in making us the leaders of tomorrow so our next generations would be propelled into a good channel of leadership and power .

I am working on starting an NGO in Nigeria, i have discoursed it with my friends and the only problem i see is that they do not seem to take this very seriously. It would have been easy for me if they did but i guess i have to work alone on this one God help me. thanks
