Social Change in India – report from Dasra.org

14

Aug

The incredible growth in India, driven by innovation in technology, finance and industry, has not been inclusive of everyone in society. Many socio-economic issues (health, education, income) persist and nearly half the population is below the poverty line. The scale of the problem is too big for individual social enterprises to tackle alone – what’s needed is social innovation that spreads India’s rapid growth to those left out. This report looks at how that might happen, and deals with 4 main problems facing social enterprises in India today:

  1. Access to blended capital and mentoring support
  2. Lack of big data to make better business decisions
  3. Shortage of skilled human resources for all sectors
  4. High upfront cost of behavioural change in society
