Whether developed, developing or underdeveloped, the role of NGO in each of the three categories of countries is equally significant. The role of NGO does not end at just curbing or countering a prevailing issue rather their role extends to sustaining the positive changes that has been brought about with the joint efforts of Government, donors, society and millions of volunteers. The causes of NGO organisation across the globe differ from each other but the common thread that runs across all NGO organisations is ‘change for the better’. Issues that NGO organisations deal with may range from human rights, health, environment, education, children, empowerment and many such categories. But all these causes sum up to benefitting our lives and the societies that we live in.
Talking about NGO organisation for children, these NGOs branch out to deal with issues that surround child development. Some of the issues are malnutrition, education, child rights, child labour and the like. These issues if not tackled will result in stunted development of children who come from underprivileged socio-economic background. Here the role of NGO becomes ever more significant because these NGO organisations deal with generations that make up for the future of the society. If one generation of children are deprived of food, education and health then it will result into a generation of poverty-stricken, illiterate and unhealthy adults. The rate of illiteracy and undernourished is so high that globally all the NGO organisations working to uplift the lives of children require enormous support from the Government and society.
In order to bring change it is better we take charge of the prevailing situation and shoulder responsibilities with the Government. When it comes to altering the lives of children there are many opportunities we can think of. We can volunteer to teach in schools run by NGO organisations, use our talent to teach extracurricular activities like dance, painting etc. to the underprivileged children, sponsor a child’s education, volunteer to spread the cause through our networking communities both, participate in awareness campaigns, contribute donation for children NGOs, get into a corporate partnership with NGO organisations and many more such voluntary activities.
Over time these NGO organisations have realised the potential of internet technology. This has made them introduce the fastest platform to contribute donation for children and that is online donation.
