The digital platform for social investment information
The Trialogue Knowledge Hub is a freely available online body of knowledge for business and other role-players that invest in socio-economic development.
Approximately R8.6 billion was spent on corporate social investment in South Africa in 2016. Equivalent magnitudes of funding were made available through private philanthropists and foundations. These investments are likely to be more effective if there is up-to-date research and case studies highlighting learnings and challenges from previous and existing initiatives.
The Trialogue Knowledge Hub will host in-depth, accessible research and information on specifi c topics across 12 development sectors. It will be freely available to anyone that wishes to access the information.
Trialogue will work with topic experts to ensure that the content is up-to-date and relevant and that the right target audience is reached, in order to maximise the impact of social investments.
