Contrary to what current intellectual discourse in the social sector might lead you to think, the reality is that the vast majority of organisations working for people are small and massively underfunded. Neither governmental nor transgovernmental entities have been able to eradicate human problems through size alone, so it's clear that the answer lies in some alternate mechanism that leverages the power of small able organisations. The long term goal of Social Effect is therefore to support, enable and network the design and delivery of workable social solutions and manageable organisations that are still deeply connected to the frontline.
