The Non-profit sector in India is growing at a rapid scale. It plays an important role in social and economic development across various sectors such as education, healthcare, rural development, women empowerment, etc. From improving human rights in a geographic area to providing education about environmental issues to supporting the arts, the goal or objective of an NGO can cover just about any topic related to improving a region, country, or the state of the world in some way.
The demand for NGOs is large but they face tough internal challenges which affect their growth and in turn, affect social development. They are often confronted with some serious and tough challenges which include a lack of credibility, fierce competition, and an inability to market themselves to their target audience.
Here we will talk about five challenges faced by NGOs and how SociallyGood.com will address these challenges:
1. Lack of proper Funding and Fundraising schemes
NGOs today face a major scarcity of funds and fundraising management schemes. Many NGOs find it difficult to garner sufficient and continuous funding for their work. Gaining access to appropriate donors is a major component of this challenge. Also, the government does not give sufficient grants in aid or delay grants. The funds are not sustainable to cover all the expenses. SociallyGood.com marketplace will carry away these woes of NGOs by providing them access to a large number of volunteers and donors as well as an opportunity to be noticed by large Corporates for their CSR activities.
2. Volunteers and Volunteer Management
The problem of finding the right volunteers with the drive for social work also persists within the Non-profit sector. Due to their limited reach, non-profits are facing the issue of not receiving dedicated and motivated volunteers who are willing to do social work. The individuals are also facing the same dilemma of having no knowledge of connecting with relevant and genuine NGOs. SociallyGood.com addresses this challenge through its Mobile app. NGOs can now create their own campaigns, which will be displayed in the app. Volunteers using the app will be able to easily register for the campaigns and do social good.
3. Lack of Technological adaptability
NGOs are often limited by their reach because they are not tech-savvy. Most of the NGOs do not have any form of digital presence like websites, apps, or social media, and are therefore not able to create proper brand awareness. SociallyGood comes to the rescue of such NGOs. SociallyGood.com provides a tech-friendly platform where NGOs can easily connect with stakeholders like donors, volunteers, and corporates.
