When it comes to non-profits, India seems to have the rest of the world beat, according to a multi-phase 2009 study conducted by Central Statistical Organisation – the estimate at the time was about 3.3 million.
The final phase of this study in 2012 provided employment details for the sector – about 18.2 million people were employed by the 2.2 million NGOs visited as part of the study.
Social services (37 percent), education and research (24 percent), and culture and recreation (15 percent) accounted for about 76 percent of all activities undertaken by these 2.2 million NGOs. However, the sector was highly male-dominated, with 72 percent men.

Deeply passionate about creating a socially impactful organisation that understands and addresses the myriad employment-related challenges of social impact organisations in India, Satyam Vyas, along with Rahul Balakrishnan, Mahamaya Navlakha, and Anchal Kakkar started Arthan Careers.
“The leadership team at Arthan Careers was committed to creating pan-India impact and leveraged technology through developing and launching an online portal. The impressive traction from the initial online portal, coupled with Arthan’s commitment to creating the best product experience possible, led to the development of responsive web applications – not only secure but also highly scalable,” Satyam says.
According to the founders, around 3,000-5,000 job postings have already been registered on its website, with a higher conversion rate for employers. Apart from this, about 10,000 children are counselled through the foundation.
“In the last 15 months, Arthan’s platform has received over 1,300 impact sector job postings. We have engaged with more than 58,000 professionals from the impact and the corporate sector. In the past 18 months, more than 101,000 users have visited Arthan’s online platform,” Satyam says.
