"Які неурядові організації ви знаєте?"

Translation:What non-governmental organizations do you know?

January 11, 2016



In the UK we refer to "private sector" and "public sector" organisations - "government" and "non-governmental" sound out of date.


This usually works in the USA as well, although private sector generally implies business for profit. One would probably specify if it is distinctly a private non-profit organization. The phrase "non-governmental organization" sounds clunky and I don't know that I've ever actually heard it spoken outright like that. We pretty much always abbreviate it to NGO.


I'd certainly use NGO to describe an organisation such as Médecins Sans Frontières.
