When you are finished with your writing, if you need someone to check your response for accuracy or grammar, I will be happy to do so for you.

Let us begin with defining non-state actors. They are simply groups or people involved in development who do not come from government. They are from the private sector and from civil society. Some examples of non-government organizations include:

-Charitable organizations
-Service organizations
-Community- Based Organizations
-City Wide Organizations
-National NGOs
-International NGOs
-Multinational corporations
-Religious groups
-And even violent groups such as drug cartels and Al-Qaeda
