Universal basic education is a key requirement for social justice, but it must be developed and delivered in a culturally sensitive manner. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) play a very significant role in the education sector in many developing countries. The primary focus of this paper is to understand the role of six specific NGOs (in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Thailand, Cambodia, India, and Malawi) in promoting education in developing countries and explore their successes and challenges. Based on their experiences, the author has proposed certain strategies that might assist NGOs who operate in other countries, and even educators in the public and private sectors in all developing countries, to ensure that all children receive quality primary and secondary education. Policymakers, Non-Governmental Organizations, and school administrations might be able to leverage the findings to better advocate for universal access to quality education in their home countries.
