The participation of NGOs in the implementation of the European Union's (EU) efforts to eradicate poverty is vital. A substantial proportion of EU development expenditure goes to NGO's whether through co-financing arrangements, thematic and geographic budget lines or the European Development Fund.

I have listed the European NGOs, which received a grant from the EU budgetary line for NGO co-financing for operations in the countries you requested to. This does not include information about NGOs who received funding from other budget lines, such as EDF and Food Security. The EU does not collate this information centrally and it would be available only at disproportionate cost.
