SBI Foundation partnered with the Government of Haryana’s landmark “Pay for Success” program to improve students’ foundational learning outcomes.

Pay for Success projects combine non-profit expertise, private funding and rigorous evaluation to transform how government leaders respond to chronic social problems. Typically, investors provide upfront capital to expand effective social services, and government entities pay for all, or part of the program only if it measurably improves the lives of participants. In a Social Impact Bond (SIB), the government pays for the outcomes and in a DIB, philanthropic foundations.
