Happy World NGO Day 2023

Today, February 27 is World NGO Day.  The contribution of the workers of various voluntary organizations and those who help in the work of the organization in various ways is remembered on the day. The government of any country works more or less for the backward sections of society.  But only based on the work of the government or the administration, the development of the backward part of an area cannot happen.

Various small voluntary organizations (non-governmental organizations) contribute to that improvement.  Keeping in mind the contribution of NGOs or Voluntary Organizations in social development, a special day has also been earmarked for them.  Today, February 27 is World NGO Day.  The contribution of the workers of various voluntary organizations and those who help in the work of the organization in various ways is remembered on the day.
