According to those who know (and honest enough to speak), ngos in 
Mumbai are one big mafia exploiting the ones they are supposed to 
protect. They are completely dishonest money leechers, sucking up 
phoren funding by organising paparazzi events which are quickly 
forgotten by new improved paparazzi events. Lots of money comes from 
he UN and are targeted at flavour of the day causes, some of which 
catch the public fancy like AIDS (never mind we have 10 times more TB 
and malnutrition deaths) or child labour or save the stray dogs. In 
the case of aids the money goes right back to the donors via 
purchasing patented drugs whose efaccy is unkown.
