CID Talk: Jacqueline Parisi: Optimising the Effectiveness of Aid with Social Enterprise

Posted on 14 November 2018

Can social enterprise really co-exist compatibly with development aid?

How can it play a role in optimising an aid budget? What makes Social Enterprise effective in development and how can it measurably contribute to social impact?

The CID Talk demonstrates how social enterprise can be integrated into development aid and how it can meaningfully contribute to social impact. Specifically, it details a case study in which the effective application of social enterprise, in a community of marginalised people affected by leprosy, has resulted in financial success and social change. Furthermore, while the resulting performance of the social enterprise in terms of financial success and social change is certainly significant, also noteworthy is that the implementation process itself has created its own sustainable social impact.
