PVOs are "private" in that a portion of their resources comes from private sources and "voluntary" in that they receive voluntary contributions from the general public.
According to PVO representatives, volunteers are generally well received by the citizens of the developing country because they are viewed as experts who volunteer their time and are not perceived as having the political agendas sometimes associated with bilateral assistance or the profit motive of contractors.
