Our Work Success in Social Impact
We support businesses in the planning, execution, evaluation, and dissemination of their social impact initiatives and social impact strategy. Our social impact consulting work includes the following examples:
Together with the Rwanda Development Board, we worked to help the nation entice private investors and generate new jobs. More than $130 million was invested as a result, and 9,000 jobs were created; additionally, 20,000 jobs were indirectly created.
We helped the Indian state of Haryana improve the educational experience for millions of students quickly and sustainably, which resulted in a 15% reduction in the budget allocated to education.
Based on our work supporting COVID-19 responses globally and our wide range of support for governments in Africa, we developed three principles to direct Africa’s COVID-19 response.
