Nonformal Education

Nongovernmental organizations (ONGs) are non-profit organizations of a wide range of categories. In general terms they are services, that cover populations that are not reached by government traditional organizations. They concentrate on development, and social activism contributing to improve life quality transforming passive sectors into responsible self-supportive subjects. In Chile, most ONGs focus on poverty and disenfranchised groups. These organizations are mostly financed by private sectors, donations and volunteerism. Community projects and workshops, are directed to homemakers, young mothers, country leaders, and in general to individuals who are marginal to institutions. Religious organizations, on the other hand, have also offered informal education.
