What is a ‘Nonprofit Organization’?
In practice, an NGO (non-governmental organization/nonprofit) is an organization that is neither a part of a government nor a conventional for-profit business. Therefore, “NGO” is a broad term that encompasses traditional private nonprofits as well as many other types of mission oriented organizations. That said, in our experience the term NGO is most commonly used to refer to internationally dispersed organizations that are engaged in specific issues such as the environment, public health, disaster relief, relief of poverty and human rights.
According to the 1989 Decree, Article1, NGOs are non-political, non-profit, pursuing development goals at the national, departmental and municipal and with resources to implement them.They are domestic and foreign. A national NGO is the one established in Haiti and having its registered office in the country. Article 2, It is considered an international NGOs any subsidiary of NGOs based abroad and having its registered office outside the territory of Haiti.
