what we’ve done

We have started working with Faz-te Forward in 2015, when Rita Casimiro, our Associate, assessed the feasibility of funding the programme through a Social Impact Bond. This work was Rita's master thesis when she was a research intern at the Lab and laid the foundations to the successful launch of Faz-te Forward as a Social Impact Bond in July 2017.
