They have the capacity and capability to feel the pulse of the masses as they work at the grassroots level and are aware of the ground realities of the social problems. They work directly with the people. NGOs focus is on self sustained development. The NGOs work four decades back was voluntary and as of now Governments impose several conditions and regulations for NGOs to continue their development works.
