The tag office=ngo is used to map the office of a  non-governmental organization (NGO). NGOs are organizations that are independent of any government, they are non-profit, and many are active in humanitarian or social areas. Examples would be Red Cross, Red Crescent, Oxfam or a trade union office. These are organisations which are privately funded (but may accept government grants) and privately run. In North America they may be called 'non-profits.'

This is a very generic tag, consider if there is a more specific option under office=*, for example: office=association, office=union, office=quango, office=charity, office=educational_institution, office=foundation
