World NGO Day is celebrated in more than 89 countries and over six continents
Each year World NGO Day is celebrated on February 27th.
World NGO Day is an international day dedicated to recognize, celebrate and honour all non-governmental and nonprofit organizations, and the people behind them that contribute to the society all year around.
Back in 2014, the 27th of February became a historic day for the NGO community worldwide. This international calendar day, now known as “World NGO day,” was inaugurated for the first time internationally.
World NGO day honours the nonprofit organisations and volunteers who give their time and resources to help make a difference.
World NGO day aims to celebrate the successes of the more than ten million NGOs worldwide and to allow many small grassroots organisations to gain the recognition they deserve.
The tremendous work of NGOs around the world is needed more than ever today. The European Commission will continue to support them in carrying out this crucial work without fear. #WorldNGOday
On World Non-Governmental Organisation Day, celebrated on 27 February, the European Union applauds the fundamental contribution made by civil society organisations.
