The NGO Café
Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
and the Civil Society

Realizing the growing importance and voice of NGOs in development in general, the NGO Café was set up as a platform for NGOs to discuss, debate and disseminate information on their work, strategies and results.

The objectives of the Café are to assist NGOs in enhancing and improving their programmes and activities; to effect a better understanding of NGOs in general; and to enable NGOs to network at local, regional and international levels.
