Brazil NGOs

NPR's Martin Kaste reports from Brasilia, Brazil, where there is growing resistance to Non-Government Organizations or NGOs. Politicians there are concerned that the groups wield too much power, and fear some NGOs are just money-making schemes that rely on official corruption to operate. But supporters worry that in their efforts to reign in the few bad examples, the politicians will harm those that are making a positive impact in Brazil.
