I want to work for an international NGO, but how?

I'm graduating from college this spring and I'm very interested in working with an international NGO. I know there are organizations monitoring elections, promoting democracy, installing networks and computers in villages, interviewing rebels and citizens… but how can I work for one? Ideally I'd like to travel a lot, or at least be based somewhere abroad (not the US).

I have lots of smaller questions, too. What sorts of skills should I start to work on now? Which NGOs are noteworthy, infamous, etc.? What personal experience do you have with this sort of work? I'll be graduating with a BA in geography—do I need to look into getting a Master's first?
