NGOs in India: A Cross-Sectional Study

K.D. Gangrade (Author) R. Sooryamoorthy (Author)
Synopsis Focusing on NGOs that work in the areas of rural development, women and children, the book sheds light on the contributions of the sector in the spheres of social welfare, empowerment, service and rural development. In addition, the problems and difficulties experienced by NGOs are analyzed and explained. The book, besides tracing the rise of NGOs in India and their transformation over the years, also reveals the importance of NGOs in India’s development after Independence. Beginning with a detailed history of voluntarism in India and examination of NGOs around the world, the authors provides the framework for examining NGOs in India as a force contributing to development. They then focus on partnerships and cooperation between NGOs and the government, advocacy and policy implications of NGO activity, accountability within organizations, approaches to problems and delivery of services, NGO lifecycles, and the need for a code of ethics within NGOs. Case studies on NGOs designed to assist women, children and rural development are presented and discussed in the context of development in general and improving the quality of life for all Indian citizens. This meticulous and comprehensive book is a unique addition to a growing field of literature on India.
