A Million Missions takes a close and comprehensive look at the working of the country′s voluntary sector and its various aspects.

Many of the million-plus NGOs in India work among the poorest and most marginalised sections of society inspiring hope for a better life and a ″new India″. Today′s non-profit sector has influenced the rightsbased paradigm of social welfare and economic development thereby furthering grassroots action and democratic foundations. NGOs in India are involved in diverse areas,from primary education and basic health to caring for the elderly.

A Million Missions is an invaluable resource for representatives of the corporate sector or donor agencies, government officials, civil society activists, and students and scholars of development studies.
