*A non-governmental organization (NGO) is an organization that is not part of a government and was not founded by states. NGOs are usually non-profit organizations that gain a portion or all of their funding from private sources. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the world’s largest group of the humanitarian NGOs.
Art in Tanzania gets all its funds from volunteers, interns and private sources. These fees fund the organization’s long term projects, which include for example the building of the Bagamoyo Youth Centre, Madala HIV/Aids –Clinic and a nursery and primary school in Masai Land.
