Pakistan is primarily a third-world country, where the government is often lacking in its duty of providing citizens with basic amenities. For example, healthcare, education, and charity consider an exclusive domain of governments in developed countries. But with the budget constraints and scarce resources allocated to these developmental areas of Pakistan’s economy, individuals forces to take matters into their own hands. Also, private organizations formed by such individuals for society’s betterment and welfare are knowing as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or not-for-profit organizations (NPOs).
The legal framework which allows NGOs to function is different from for-profit organizations. Moreover, there are specific laws in the country for registering NGOs and keeping them functional as per the defined regulations.
