NGOs or Non- governmental organizations made their first appearance in the mid of the nineteenth century, just after the World War II. The basic aim of forming these organizations was to provide support to the common people who had suffered a major loss in the post-World War scenario. Since that time NGOs have become increasingly influential in the development of the society and the people living in it.
The role of the NGOs in the developing world is quite critical, their responsibilities and work spans across different levels, and fields; and in order to perform all those tasks with utmost accuracy and efficiency NGOs are quickly becoming more structured and organized. These non- governmental and non-profit organizations mainly run on donations and charities, and they work with the motto of effective development at the grass root level, which can bring a radical change in the progress of the society as a whole.
The Role of the NGOs
With time, the country has experienced rapid growth; but, the growth has not been able to touch every level of the society in the same way. On one hand, when more and more people are becoming habituated with an annual foreign trip, a major part of the society is hardly able to earn the bread for a day. NGOs take significant steps to reach out to these grass root level and help them to have a better life through their own development.
The responsibilities of an NGO in a developing society are not restricted within extending help to the poor, but the NGOs take a leading part in a number of other social issues, including child and women trafficking, child and adult education, extending proper medical care to people with physical or mental disability, and also in a number of other aspects, which are designed with the same motto of development of the derived class. These organizations often provide essential services in the developing world, which are mainly taken care of by the government agencies or institutions in the developed countries.
