The Million Missions Report, conceived in mid-2022, measures the contributions of civil society in India during 75 years of Independence. The research for the report was conducted in all states by reaching out to civil society organisations and non-profit institutions registered as trusts, societies and section 8 companies. The objective of the report lies in demonstrating the ways in which the sector has facilitated India’s holistic development by raising resources and working with underprivileged communities. Additionally, the report emphasises the sector’s role in generating revenue, creating jobs, promoting community engagement and aiding marginalised individuals in India. Art X Company, a strategy and research consultancy specialising in the creative sector, also contributed to the process and efforts of generating this report.
