Our Focus Areas Building Social Innovation Markets

Scaling-up the reach of social innovation means focusing on the areas that have the greatest impact on the quality of people's lives, namely:


Economic Empowerment

Expanding women and youth access to economic opportunity.



Increasing access to affordable, quality early childhood development and basic education as well as developing demand-led skills systems that boost employability and economic growth.



Increasing access to quality, affordable primary healthcare.



Increasing access to affordable off-grid renewable energy solutions.


Water & Sanitation

Increasing access to affordable safe drinking water and improved sanitation.


Human Settlements

Building productive, sustainable, inclusive cities.


Infrastructure Delivery

Improving infrastructure productivity and impact.

Si Global's ultimate purpose is to develop social innovation markets that radically increase people's access to services and economic opportunity. We aim to do this through:

  • Developing standards and accreditation mechanisms for SI companies and social enterprises.
  • Developing sectoral baseline data, agreed impact measures, market data and trends.
  • Working with donors, philanthropists and impact investors on new incentive structures and funding models.
  • Measuring company and market financial performance, social impact and market trends.
