Social impact in practice

One of the biggest advantages of private philanthropy is that it exists independent of the need to demonstrate short-term results. Philanthropists' passion combined with a thoughtful strategy and patience can achieve sustainable results particularly in areas where long commitments are required, such as education, health and environment. How do long-term sustainable livelihood programs lift a community out of poverty? What does it take to achieve this scale and social mission?
