World NGO Day: Collaborate, network and cooperate to maximise outcomes
World NGO Day has been observed annually on 27 February since 2010 in some countries to highlight the importance of NGOs and recognise the tremendous work that they do for the society.

It is said that the World NGO Day initiative was created by a university student, Marcis Liors Skadmanis, who first thought of the initial idea during his Masters in International Law and NGO legislation.

According to an NGO Forum, the observance is also meant to mobilise conceptual support from various governments and press for creation of World NGO Day by the UN internationally as well as expand the horizons of NGOs in the SAARC region.

The World NGO Day provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the successes of the sector and focus for new and emergent ideas.

According AIDF, the initiative was created five years ago and aspires to be part of the international calendar, while acknowledged and supported by various NGOs around the world. It is intended to be a symbol of bringing together the world's NGOs to build stronger future for all. They feel that by collaborating, commemorating and celebrating the efforts and achievements of NGOs from all sectors, NGOs must work for a better future for this generation and the next ones.

Furthermore, there is a need for better and enhanced collaboration, networking and cooperation between different NGOs to maximise the outcomes and decrease repetition of efforts. It has been seen many times NGOs work at cross-purposes and tend to become family enterprises which can be stopped through networking and conscience keeping.
