The Institute for Development Impact, otherwise known as I4DI, was established in September 2014. We are a woman-owned social enterprise. We reinvest profits into our non-profit arm called Alliance Franco Bettoli-Development Institute (AFB), which operates out of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Balkans, the home region of I4DI’s founders.
Named after an Italian humanitarian and human rights activist, AFB works to address the physical, emotional, and structural causes of poverty, oppression, and humanitarian emergencies. To date, AFB has conducted over 40 projects ranging from socio-economic studies, humanitarian and relief programs, and long-term development interventions in Eastern Europe, gaining recognition for an approach to international development that is participatory and community-based.
