What is the Center for Social Innovation?

The Center for Social Innovation (CSI) is a new program of Gawad Kalinga that aims to create wealth in GK communities through the establishment of sustainable social enterprises. The CSI model of business emphasizes partnerships with stakeholders such as the GK communities, large corporations, private investors, and entrepreneurs in order to create businesses that are pro-poor as well as pro-environment. CSI aims to fly Filipino brands by supporting young entrepreneurs as well as encouraging innovations and entrepreneurship within the GK communities.
