Hello everybody

My niece asked me:
What are NGOs?
I said:
NGOs are institutions that act independently of the government.

Does the highlighted part sound natural in English?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

    My only nitpick is I would call them organizations rather than institutions. All NGOs are organizations but not all are institutions.
