Selected Organisation

The organisation that I selected to perform this assignment is my own organisation where I work. It is a not for profit organisation that works to improve the life of children.

Organisation Purpose

The ambition of this organization is to improve the life of children by providing them aid so that they can combat with the issues of poverty, they provide them shelter and guidance on how they can protect themselves from different sorts of abuses and they make provisions so that each child can get access to quality education and health care facility. Their aim is to serve for the betterment of lives of children without any discrimination; they serve at federal, states and even at the level of communities.

The number of Nonprofit organizations in the United States includes “1.8 million registered organizations and several million other associations, including support groups, book clubs, and neighborhood action committees” (O'Neill, 2002, p. xvii); estimates by the Independent Sector in 2005 put the number of registered organizations closer to 1.9 million

Organisation's Structure
