         Non-Government Organizations


The role of non governmental organizations and voluntary agencies in India has been very important. In situations of widespread poverty and deprivation, exploitation and discrimination, the State has not been in a position to ameliorate everything. The Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have stepped in to provide basic health and child care services, running home for the destitute and distressed and providing education and training opportunities. At the same time, these NGOs have also been working towards building a more humane society free from exploitation and want. The partnership between NGOs and the government has been of mutual benefit.
