"BOOKBRIDGE broadened my individual perspective and motivated me to co-develop a capability-based social impact program for Swiss Re Bangalore."

Amit Kalra, Managing Director, Swiss Re Bangalore

Our impact is our right to exist. This is why transparency in how we move from vision to impact is key to us.

We use the logic model to plan, communicate, implement and assess the impact of our programs. The logic model comprises inputs to describe what resources we put in, activities to show what we actually do, outputs to portray the immediate result out of our program and outcomes and impact for long-term effects leading to our vision of a world of purpose-driven leaders. The numbers below refer to our impact generated as per March 1, 2021.

Inputs

The key resources required to run our action learning programs are motivated professionals who are ready to step into the shoes of a social entrepreneur, aspiring social entrepreneurs from deprived communities as well as impact investors who are willing to invest their time, money and heart into making a difference.

Outputs

After our action learning programs, professionals and social entrepreneurs turn into purpose-driven leaders in their respective environments. As a team, they created one tangible social enterprise which improves job and life chances of a deprived community. The social enterprise offers its products or services against a minimal fee from locals to locals. This allows the social enterprise to re-pay the soft loan received from impact investors.
