Non-government organisations - commonly referred to as NGOs - are trying to step in where governments have failed. But, like many government agencies, NGOs don't always enjoy a good reputation. Despite the bad press and terrible image that many NGOs have, it is important that we don't paint all NGOs with that same brush of mistrust. It is important that we find ways to sift the "good" from the "bad" and facilitate the growth of the "good" NGOs.
