February 27 is observed as the World NGO day all over the world, annually. It is an endeavour to acknowledge and honour non-governmental and nonprofit organisations for their significant contributions to society around the globe.
 
On the occasion of this international day, let's find out about its theme, history and significance :
 
History : The World NGO (Non-Governmental Organisations) Day assumed its official status when 12-member countries of the IX Baltic Sea NGO Forum on April 17, 2010 formally recognised it. In 2012, the forum's Final Statement Resolution adopted the day.
 
Although the day was recognised officially in 2010, it was only in 2014, that for the first time World NGO Day was observed by the United Nations. The main man behind this day was Marcis Liors Skadmanis, an UK-based social entrepreneur. He inaugurated the 2014 World NGO Day. It was hosted in Helsinki, Finland by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.
 
The day was conceived to spread awareness of the tremendous contributions of NGOs all around the world and honour the relentless efforts of the social workers both in the public and private sectors..

Correct Answer :   New Development Bank (NDB)


New Development Bank (NDB) will become the first multilateral agency to open an office in the Gujarat International Finance Tech City (Gift) after an approval for the same this week.
 
NDB vice president representating India Anil Kishora said the multilateral agency will take all requisite steps to make the Indian office operational by the middle of May.
 
"An office within India will help enhance the bank’s engagement with Indian stakeholders and borrowers, whether existing or potential. They will have easy access to our staff right here, with hardly any need to reach out to the Shanghai headquarters. We chose not to be in Delhi because it will help us to connect with states better and besides all other multilateral agencies are based in the capital which makes it quite crowded," he said..

In order to raise awareness on the importance of an essential nutrient like protein, every year February 27 is observed as Protein Day. Being the building blocks of our life that help repair body cells, protein is essential for the healthy growth and development of children, teens and also pregnant women.
 
Protein has a range of functions to play in the proper functioning of our body. From increasing muscle mass and repairing muscle tissues, strengthening bones and boosting metabolism, sufficient intake of protein ensures that we remain healthy from within.
 
Hence, to familiarize people with these important functions of proteins and to rally towards the mission of protein awareness and sufficiency in India, Protein Day is celebrated.
 
NATIONAL PROTEIN DAY HISTORY : Globally Protein Day is celebrated on February 27 every year. However, India recently started observing the day and celebrated it first in 2020. A national level public health initiative called Right to Protein launched India’s first Protein Day to sensitize and educate people on the benefits of consuming protein-rich food.
 
NATIONAL PROTEIN DAY 2022 THEME : This year, the theme of the Protein Day has been kept as Food Futurism. The theme has been chosen to help exercise the right to protein accessibility, which is one of the six core values of the Right To Protein initiative. The theme is aimed at bringing food scientists, nutrition experts and biologists to discuss food science and its role in protein sufficiency and food security in India.
