It is commonly accepted that non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are created for those they serve, not for those that serve. Most NGOs are driven by a small number of individuals that see a gap – a social needs gap, a service delivery gap, a sustainable development gap or any other gap. These individuals get involved because they want to make a difference and change the world for the better. Often they are prepared to start small, to make a difference to one life at a time.
