QUOTE OF THE DAY

"NGOs don't really exist for the sake of helping the people that they mention in their mission statements. They exist because there is all this funding coming from abroad for development work and stuff, and they need someone to coordinate things on this end, and thus jobs are born, so they pretty much just exist because there are people who want the jobs that are created by the funding. In other words, they don't exist because people have an actual genuine desire to help."

- Ilyeana, an US expat volunteering for an NGO in Bangladesh
