The term NGO is very broad and encompasses many different types of organisations. In the field of development, NGOs range from large, Northern-based charities such as CARE, Oxfam and World Vision to community-based self-help groups. They also include research institutes, churches, professional associations and lobby groups The World Bank tends to interact with two main categories of NGOs: Operational NGOs – whose primary purpose is the design and implementation of development-related projects, and; Advocacy NGOs – whose primary purpose is to defend or promote a specific cause and who seek to influence the policies and practices of the World Bank.

I might not be the first to come up with this idea but I am sure I won’t be the last either.
My aim –
To benefit the community through marketing (non-profit faith based)
My plan –
