NGO Directories Online

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.

Please note: These are not job/opportunity directories but instead are meant as a resource for those seeking to learn more about organizations doing work in fields and countries of interest.
