India lacks quality social infrastructure, only a small fraction of the population has access to quality healthcare, higher education, financial and services
YES Global Institute strongly believes that India’s social indices have to improve immensely if the dream of inclusive and sustainable growth is to be realized. The Institute envisages a new equilibrium of demand and supply side interventions to put India on a road to high social sector growth.
Focusing on new age social infrastructure is critical in ‘bringing the future to the present’ in India. The Institute works towards resetting delivery of services, attracting private capital to social sectors and enabling disruptive innovation which will leapfrog the development trajectory in India.
Social Impact undertakes extensive thought advocacy (empirical research papers, knowledge reports and opinion articles) and outreach to generate momentum for policy reforms. It also works towards bringing in key insights from the socio-economic scenario of developed countries and to localize appropriate solutions for the India context.
India is the most happening socio-economic market and channelizing global interest appropriately will create the right ecosystem to jumpstart social and sunrise sectors:
Education & Skills
Youth & Women Empowerment
