Certificate Programme in NGO Management CNM

Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) play an important role in various developmental issues across the states in India. VAN (Voluntary Action Network India), an apex body of Indian voluntary organizations estimates that there are
1.2 million NGOs working in India. As per the data available with the planning commission, there are more than 12,000 NGOs in the country. In view of the increasingly important role of the voluntary sector in the developmental process, all
levels of policymaking have stressed the importance of building its capacity to face the developmental challenge. The emphasis of the management education process hitherto had been limited to the private sector and or large public undertakings. The capacity-building efforts for the voluntary sector have remained limited to organizing workshops and training programmes and formal course work in universities. However, given the size of the sector, and if we add to this the many socially spirited individuals involved in social activism, the capacity building needs of the sector can
only be catered to by undertaking distance education programmes.

  • To provide the basic managerial concepts to NGO workers;
