“Education for All” is a very beautiful and motivating social slogan, which is raised by the government but is seldom realized in its true manifestation and perspective. Acquisition of education is a basic human right; however the government finds it difficult to provide education to everyone.
Paucity of resources has always been taken as a hindrance in the way. Even governments of developed countries like that of the U.S.A are unable to provide education to everyone. Under this scenario the importance of non-government organizations (NGOs) has increased manifold as they are actively involved in social sector activities such as the provision of basic education to a poor community/area/locality, although it may be on a smaller scale.
There are also some socio cultural barriers which do not allow government to deliver social services. The government therefore encourages NGOs to help them out as NGOs have roots in the community and as such they have an edge to reach communities in a better fashion.
