Kickstart an NGO:
One of the most popular sections in GDRC's NGO Cafe is the "Kickstart an NGO" section. Its main content is an NGO Management Toolbox, which includes a feature on how to start an NGO.

NGOs need to develop the necessary resources in order to be able to develop and implement their programmes effectively. "Kickstart an NGO" contains strategies, tools, evaluations and other resources for an NGO. What roles do they have to play? What relationships and partnerships need to be developed?
