Abstract: The idea of ending poverty seemed absurd years ago, but now we have measures helping achieve the ruling. The key aim of this study is to investigate the role of social entrepreneurship in poverty alleviation in India. We aim to study previous investigations, associated with this study earlier while adopting this study method. We want to propose a conceptual framework to study the relationship between social entrepreneurship and organizational effectiveness. We also aim to explain various theories of change that social entrepreneurs have pursued in overcoming poverty in the country. The study will utilize qualitative methods to collect data of social enterprises organizations in the main cities in India. The data collected will be evaluated to determine how organizational effectiveness can help social entrepreneurship to overcome urban poverty. Although no single social enterprise venture had put a huge dent in poverty, there certainly have been many initiatives that have notable stories to tell about how they have helps poor people. The findings could benefit not only individual social entrepreneurs but also public, policy maker and firms by clarifying how much social entrepreneurship could be relied upon to help alleviate poverty as compared to government and business initiatives.
