SELCO Foundation’s program of “Energising Vulnerable Community Institutions” focuses on institutions that cater to the above broad categories of vulnerable groups.

Vulnerable groups can be defined as those who are vulnerable under any circumstances, and those whose resource endowment is inadequate to provide sufficient income from any available source. Generally, vulnerable populations are groups of people who are at a higher risk of experiencing adverse outcomes due to various factors, such as socio-economic status, health conditions, age, disability, and more.
