Non-Governmental Organizations

Origin and Development

By Suresh Chandra, Anne Karen Trollope

An incredibly large number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are active in India, and more than 50,000 of them are working internationally. Millions of Indians are associated with voluntary work in some form or the other. This book brings together a whole range of topics - theoretical, legal, and practical - related to NGO work in India. The book looks at the challenges and successes in this field, beginning with a brief history of voluntary work, along with a discussion on ethical issues surrounding the NGOs. It then provides guidance on how to create, lead, and manage an effective NGO. The examination of model NGOs have also been included as case studies. The book will be invaluable to all those studying or working in NGOs, the voluntary sector, or development studies. [Subject: India Studies, Development Studies]
