The study aimed to identify the level of positive thinking and its relationship with life quality among people working with NGOS in the Gaza strip governments. It also aimed at identifying the level of life quality among the same subjects. The researchers administered the study tools, which were namely the positive thinking scale designed by Abd-Elsatar (2008) and life quality scale designed by the authors to the study sample that consisted of (100) people working with NGOS, of those 64 were males and 36 were females. The study findings showed that (1) the level of positive thinking was 73%, where the general satisfaction domain came first with a percentage of 84.1%, and positive risk taking came ninth and last with a percentage of 48.5%. ; (2) the total percentage of life quality was 73.6% where the social domain occupied the first rank with a percentage of 85.1% whereas the job domain came fourth and last with a percentage of 84.8%.; (3) there was a statistically positive correlation between positive thinking and life quality; (4) there were statistically significant differences between the positive thinking scale domains attributable to sex and in favour of males ,and attributable to income and in favour of those whose income exceeded 1500 new Israeli sheqal,and attributable to experience in favour of those who have more five years experience compared to those who have less than five years experience; (5) there were statistically differences in the scores of life quality attributable to sex and in favour of males, attributable to income and in favour of those with 1500 NIS, and attributable to experience and in favour of those with more than five years experience. The study recommended those responsible for the NGOSs to foster positive thinking among staff working with NGOS and helping them acquire positive dealing with others as this would promote their life satisfaction
