How Indian NGOs have contributed to India's progress?

NGOs or Non-Governmental Organisations are cause-oriented organisations that work for a plethora of issues ranging from social development, human development, health, skill development, environment to animal rights, and more. These organisations work to benefit the society and the environment in a sustainable manner. To bring about change from the grass root level, these charitable organisations work at local, national, and international levels and function independently from any form of government, i.e. they are neither managed nor owned by any government or government representatives. It is estimated that there are about 10 million NGOs across the globe, and as per a report on 2015, there are about 3 million Indian charity organisations.
