Why 'Social Impact Investment in Development'?

Faith-based NGOs are instrumental actors in global development, driven by their convictions to address societal challenges. Impact investment plays a crucial role in supporting the activities of these organisations, enabling them to implement projects and programs that promote social justice, humanitarian aid, and community development.

Despite the potential benefits, faith-based NGOs face challenges in navigating the complexities of impact investment, including financial literacy, risk management, regulatory compliance, and aligning investor expectations with their mission-driven objectives. How can faith-based NGOs overcome these challenges and build the capacity necessary to effectively engage with impact investment? 

The convergence of faith-based NGOs and impact investment holds immense potential to address pressing global challenges and create positive change. By embracing the principles of impact investment, leveraging their unique strengths, and fostering collaboration, faith-based NGOs can play a pivotal role in advancing sustainable development and building a more equitable and compassionate world. This roundtable discussion serves as a platform to explore innovative strategies and forge partnerships that harness the power of faith-based organisations and impact investment for the greater good.
