English term or phrase: briefcase organisations
"The exact numbers of how many NGOs are currently registered in Uganda are unclear – but during conversations with local experts working in the industry, estimates range from 9,000 – 12,000. Of course, not all of them are operational and briefcase organisations multiply."

Sembra si parli di organizzazioni solo di facciata, che si occupano di fare profitti dietro l'apparenza di progetti di sviluppo in realtà inesistenti.

Translator’s note: A “briefcase company” refers to companies that only exist on paper, or are using a front company to pocket money. In Venezuela, they are often associated with a business-class mafia.
