The Van Woustraat Trust conducted a Social Return on Investment Study (SROI) over the course of 2021-2022 for Kikoa64 with the support of Impact Reporting, the team at Kikao64 and social value and economist consultants.
SROI is an estimation of the monetary (economic) and non-monetary (social and environmental) benefits of a programme or organisation together. It’s powerful because it values intangible things like wellbeing in financial terms. This allows interventions to be compared by a ratio of cost-input to benefit-output.
