GIF invests with a view to maximising social impact. As a learning organization and an evidence-based investor, GIF is keenly interested in tracking the impact of its investments, and learning lessons from their implementation. GIF deploys a variety of tools for this purpose as appropriate, ranging from rigorous RCTs to tracking of operational indicators.
This section reports on investments that have progressed to significant scale and where information is available on their impact or reach. It is complemented by two other sections of the website:
Completion reports: retrospective self-evaluations of closed and exited investments.
