Preventing family separation in Indonesia

Preventing family separation in Indonesia

In Indonesia, approximately 2.15M children live without their parents. Yet, 90% of them have at least one parent alive. The underlying reasons are numerous and complex, but they mostly relate to poverty and lack of access to social assistance.

A Development Impact Bond could help bring a solution to this issue. In this scope, KOIS supported two foundations with the structuring of a DIB to test an innovative, cost-efficient and scalable model of family separation prevention.

Raising capital to improve healthcare via access to clean and cheap energy

Raising capital to improve healthcare via access to clean and cheap energy

For too long, a lack of reliable power has prevented people in remote and rural communities from accessing the healthcare they need. KOIS is designing an innovative financing mechanism to scale up UNDP’s Solar for Health initiative. In fact, S4H helps governments in providing clean energy access for health facilities by installing PV systems.

Improving outcomes for mental health patients in India

Mental illness constitutes one-sixth of all health related disorders in India. In fact, India accounts for nearly 15% of the global mental, neurological and substance abuse disorder burden. Yet, there is a 90% treatment gap for those living with mental illness in India. In this context, KOIS is researching how innovative finance could help improve treatment standards and adherence for mental health patients.

Low income patients in India today face three challenges when trying to avail primary care services. From limited geographical access, to their inability to afford treatment, to poor quality of care.

Decreasing school dropout in underprivileged neighbourhoods across France

Decreasing school dropout in underprivileged neighbourhoods across France

In France, about 100,000 students drop out of secondary school every year, leaving the education system without a diploma. This problem particularly affects schools located in underprivileged areas. Decreasing school dropout rates in these areas could have a major impact on the personal and professional development of the students.

Consequently, a family foundation mandated KOIS to assess the feasibility of a Social Impact Bond in this context. The SIB would serve to finance the scale-up of a programme decreasing school dropout rates. The project does so by integrating the practice of a musical instrument into schools’ curriculum.
