The United Nations, marking the twenty-seventh of February as the International Day of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), acknowledges these organizations as the backbone of development, humanitarian aid, and emergency responses.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) stated on Tuesday, February 27th, on its social media platform X, that in the year 2023, the organization, along with non-governmental organizations, assisted millions of people in need in Afghanistan.

It is worth mentioning that on February 27, 2014, the global event now known as “World NGO Day” was added to the international calendar to honor and recognize the activities of all non-governmental and non-profit organizations.

Non-governmental organizations typically operate independently, especially from the government, and have been recognized as instrumental in building a society free from challenges and social issues, particularly since World War II.

In Afghanistan, numerous non-governmental organizations coordinate with international bodies, yet the exact number remains unclear, and comprehensive research on the effectiveness of these organizations has not been conducted.

These organizations often serve as pillars of support in conflict zones, aiding communities in need and providing essential services where governmental structures may be lacking or ineffective.

As we commemorate the International Day of NGOs, it’s crucial to recognize the invaluable contributions these organizations make toward fostering sustainable development, promoting human rights, and addressing global challenges.
