Non-governmental organizations, or NGOs, were first referred to in these terms in Article 71 in the Charter of the newly formed United Nations of 1945. NGOs have no fixed or formal definition, but they are commonly defined as nonprofit entities which are independent of governmental influence (although NGOs may receive government funding).
NGOs are involved in activities such as environmental, social, advocacy and human rights work. They aim to promote social or political change on a broad scale or at the local level. Over the years, NGOs have played a critical role in developing society, improving communities, and promoting citizen participation.
