Development Sector

Industry Snapshot

The world has progressively moved from the ‘Millennium Development Goals’ to the ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ and so as the challenges to create a lasting impact in the lives of millions of underprivileged people across the globe.

Traditionally, the roots of Indian civil society have been very strong and effervescent which is corroborated by the existence of innumerable NGOs in the country. With the mounting impact and professionalization of this sector, the country has witnessed unparalleled level of interest from professionals from the mainstream corporate sector for participation and contribution.

We at Careerist believe that with the proper implementation of well-devised programs, involving all stakeholders and some well-thought and laid-out policies, our country will be able to rise to the challenge and could be a key contributor to work towards the SDGs.

Some of the areas which steer the development sector are Public Health, Sustainable Livelihood, Education, Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Women & Child Development, Environment & Sustainability, Agriculture & Rural Development, Governance, Urban Development, Micro Finance etc.
