Taking solutions to scale through social business models


Over 35 years, Sight and Life has established itself as an expert in bringing out new scientific knowledge and research innovations for nutrition. We continue to build on our core expertise in generating scientific evidence but now apply greater emphasis on how this knowledge leads to impact on the ground.

The 3-stage testing of solutions

For making direct impact on the ground, 3 stages are required:

  • Stage 1
  • Stage 2
  • Stage 3

Stage 1: From science to solution

Generating scientific knowledge and converting that into solutions for what needs to be done; providing evidence-based solutions, which is a think tank’s core area of work.
