A non-governmental organization (NGO) is a not-for-profit organization that is independent from states and international governmental organizations. They are usually funded by donations but some avoid formal funding altogether and are run primarily by volunteers. NGOs are highly diverse groups of organizations engaged in a wide range of activities, and take different forms in different parts of the world. Some may have charitable status, while others may be registered for tax exemption based on recognition of social purposes. Others may be fronts for political, religious, or other interests. Non-governmental organizations are often setup to plug in the gaps left by the government. In India, there are NGOs doing brilliant work in different fields. For example in the education sector we have Pratham, Teach for India and Akshya-Patra. A substantial number of NGOs are involved with one of the most important problems facing the poor like lack of quality skills and employment opportunities. These NGOs focus on skill development and livelihood creation by creating entrepreneurial opportunities for them. All these activities of NGOs are facilitating in the nation building.
In the long term, NGOs will continue to play a larger role in nation-building. Increasing prosperity and increased focus on Corporate Social Responsibility spending will definitely help in increasing the focus on the unpreviledged sections of society. Those NGOs that are able to adopt best practices and bring about the maximum transparency through auditing and reporting will be best placed to receive a larger chunk of funds in the coming years. NGOs such as Akshya Patra have grown enormously in scale by consistently delivering results year after year. CSR spending will benefit only the most credible organizations and allow them to grow in scale. This is a good trend, larger and more accountable NGOs will be able to deliver more effectively and efficiently, making best use of resources.
Thus, NGOs will continue to play a larger role in Indian society, but it is also essential for NGOs to open themselves for auditing and reporting. In this backdrop, it becomes essential to provide a stimulating platform for academicians and practitioners from NGO to reflect, deliberate, and suggest measures for improving the performance of NGOs in India. From this perspective, R V Institute of management is organizing the national conference on “Role of NGOs in Nation Building” on December 03, 2016. The Conference Organizing Committee takes pleasure in inviting our members of fraternity from the academia, corporate and NGOs representative to participate in the deliberations by submitting Research papers and Case studies. The aim of this National Conference is to discuss, deliberate and disseminate above critical issues related to the growth of NGOs in India and suggesting measures for their sustainable growth.
