Many of those interested in working internationally are interested in working in the non-profit, development, and/or aid-related sectors with non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The links below are to searchable/browsable NGO directories freely accessible online. Most of the directories are based on affiliation but not geographically bound. The degree to which you can customize your search of the databases varies widely.
