NGO Country Overview

Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the Caribbean have done extensive work throughout their respective countries in order to address the social ills which impact the development of their societies. However, the public and other NGOs are often times unaware of the important work undertaken by Caribbean NGOs  as it is not widely publicized. The Country NGO Overview therefore seeks to highlight the work being done by NGOs in the region with the hope of facilitating partnerships and collaborations amongst them as well as raising public awareness.
