What's an NGO?
They come in all shapes and sizes
NGO stands for Non-Government Organization. This means that it is a group that is not part of the government, but that does some of the things that governments do.

NGOs can be huge - like the Red Cross, or small like - One Child's Village. Either way they play a role in making the world a better place to live.
