Experience in world of NGO's.

What should be researched?

Lots of ngo's, like Natuur & Milieu, Vluchtelingenwerk, Urgenda, Oxfam, get hundreds of millions of subsidies every year to do their work. They are, effectively, not NGO because the government aid makes them dependent of the government. They effectively influence politics with their mostly leftist agenda. How much money goes there, including the money flows from the state-monopoly lotto organisations like Vriendenloterij and Staatsloterij and their foundation DOEN.

Who is affected?

Mentioned NGO's, government are stakeholders. Affected are the general public and political parties.

Why should this story be researched?

The NGO's are not activist organisations, as they pretend to be, but disguised as storm troopers for gov policies, a Revolutionary Guard

Where does this story take place?

in NL but maybe also on a European scale.

Interesting additional question from one of my followers on LinkedIn: take a deep dive into the annual reports from these lotteries, resulting from a state monopoly. Assumption is that there is much more money floating around than we think because actual costs of running the lotteries is much lower than stated. This could be due to the fact that many many small prices, distributed among thousands of lottery ticket holders, are not collected. Remember this daytrip for two you won but couldn't find the time to actually do? Or these socks you got to collect but forgot about? John
