How do you pursue a Career in NGO Management?

I am very curious about a Career in NGO Management. Almost everyone seems to be talking about How to start a Career in NGO Management, while I want to first develop an understanding of What is a Career in NGO Management. My research about a Career in NGO Management became a lot more meaningful when I found: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20171110-0001/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-NGO-Management/hindi

Career Video on NGO Management

In a video, Bharat Sharma has talked about various aspects of a Career in NGO Management. Bharat Sharma started by explaining NGO Management as: "Non government organizations, commonly referred to as NGOs, are usually non-profit and sometimes international organizations independent of governments and international governmental organizations that are active in humanitarian, educational, healthcare, public policy, social, human rights, environmental, and other areas to effect changes according to their objectives. To achieve success, NGOs have to continually improve and professionalize their work, which puts more and more demands on the management and leadership of an organization." It was an amazing video with great information.


I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in NGO Management and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into NGO Management. Bharat Sharma touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Finance

Bharat Sharma then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in NGO Management:
  • Computers

  • Team Work
  • Motivation

  • Analytical
This Career has an interesting list of Positives.
Bharat Sharma believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in NGO Management:
  • Improvement Of Economic Condition
  • Reviving The Natural Resources
  • Women Empowerment
After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Bharat Sharma believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in NGO Management:
