The Lithuanian Social Business Association (LISVA) is a national umbrella organization uniting social businesses. LISVA’s purpose is three-fold:
- to represent the interests of social business in state and municipal institutions,
- to evaluate the programs and measures implemented by state institutions,
- to help state institutions form public policy and to make specific proposals for the state and municipal institutions regarding the inclusion of social business development in decision-making processes.
LISVA was established in 2018 to create a favorable environment for social business, increase the awareness of social business and promote the implementation of internationally acceptable good practices in Lithuania and strengthen the social business community.
