S3IDF has shown through its work among the poorer sections of society in Asia and elsewhere that its approach in designing innovative solutions is unparalleled. I recommend that the development community take advantage of the advisory services that S3IDF offers.

Padu S. Padmanaban Former Program Director and Senior Energy Advisor, USAID/India

S3IDF is one of the pioneers in providing innovative and sustainable market solutions for energy poverty. S3IDF has been an active partner with ADB’s Energy for All for a number of years, and we value S3IDF both as partner and for the critical voice that has helped to refine our projects and point us towards priority areas where our support and intervention can help make a difference in the fight against poverty.

Jiwan Acharya Senior Climate Change Specialist (Clean Energy), Asian Development Bank

S3IDF is a special organization; highly experienced, capable, and dedicated staff carefully work at the intersection of technology, finance, cultures, and entrepreneurship in impoverished communities. Their work fully embodies their name.
