The Commercialization of NGOs

… A survival model for non-profit organizations in Nigeria

A non-government organization (NGO) is a non-profit, charity-based organization established by individuals to work with charity and philanthropic aids locally and internationally.

It is a type of civil society organization offering charity and humanitarian services to citizens. Commercialization in the non-governmental organization has generated a lot of debate in the society.

The debate is focused on whether or not NGOs should produce goods and services with the intent of making profit. Those in favour hold on to self-sufficiency as a reason for NGOs commercial services while those against it claim that it opposes the mission of a non-profit organization.
