The NGO Resource Centre operates within the framework of the Civil Society Programme of the Aga Khan Foundation (Pakistan). Based in Karachi, in the province of Sindh, Pakistan, the Centre has been in existence since 1990.

c) information and research to create greater understanding of the role of civil society organizations, promote quality standards and an enabling policy environment for the civil society sector; and
d) communication by disseminating information through target-oriented products to a wide-range of development stakeholders and civil society including community-based organizations, the corporate world, media, academics, public sector officials and concerned citizens.

NGORC has been supported by the following organizations and agencies; the European Commission, through the Rural Social Development Programme; the Canadian International Development Agency and the Aga Khan Foundation, Canada through the Pakistan-Canada Social Institutions Development Programme; and the Aga Khan Foundation (USA) and USAID, through the Institutional Management and Certification Programme..
