NGO directory

This directory only includes links to Southern NGOs’ web sites. Relevant information from other sources, as well as access to individual documents produced by the NGOs, can be found in separate sections of the Choike portal. The directory does not provide an exhaustive list of NGOs, but rather a selection of useful and relevant sites. It is organized in five broad categories, which are divided into issue-specific subsections.

The directory can be accessed by selecting the links to each thematic area (organized in the categories listed at the bottom of this page, and in the menu on the right-hand side of each page of the directory). For each area you will find a list of NGOs, each with a brief description and a link to its web page.

You can also search for an NGO in the directory by entering keywords in the search engine at the top of this page. The search results will include all those organizations that contain the selected keywords in its name or description.
