The book defines the volunteer and discusses the methods of measuring the value of volunteer labor to NGOs. It includes a detailed discussion of the particular contributions of the oldest and youngest volunteers in India. The distinctive motivations and contributions of those with a religious inspiration for voluntary action are explored at length, as are the important issues of service clubs and corporate support for volunteer activities. A unique feature of the book is that it is enriched with narratives and case studies of individuals and organizations that throw light on specific aspects of volunteerism in the Indian context.
The book concludes by taking a look at new trends and the strong continuing traditions that inspire modern volunteers to offer their time and talents in the service of society.
