About 2/2: … Choike is a portal dedicated to improving the visibility of the work done by NGOs and social movements from the South. It serves as a platform where citizen groups can disseminate their work and at the same time enrich it with information from diverse sources, which is presented from the perspective of Southern civil society.  Choike offers:  

  • A directory of NGOs organized in categories and sub-categories. This is not an exhaustive list, but a selection of useful and relevant sites. The directory only contains Southern NGO web sites; relevant information from other sources can be found in separate sections.
  • A search engine that enables you to find information in the directory’s web sites. It is a tool designed to allow you to search the sites selected by Choike on the basis of their quality and relevance. NGOs that wish to include the Choike search engine on their web sites can do so at the Choike portal.
  • A selection of materials produced by NGOs which contain information of relevance to civil society and to those people who are interested in what NGOs have to say. These materials can be accessed through reports, news items and information resources.
  • In-depth reports on key issues, which provide comprehensive information and reflect different views, in particular highlighting the position adopted by civil society on these issues.
  • Dissemination of NGO actions and campaigns.
