- It renews its commitment to initiatives that promote the development of these groups, prioritizing children, youth and support for women.
- An evaluation committee will select around 30 projects in October, which will be implemented throughout 2022.
Fundación Iberdrola España launches the call for its Social Program 2022, which aims to help build a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable society, committed to the most vulnerable people.
In this new edition, social entities are invited to submit proposals that contribute to reducing inequalities and help promote future opportunities for groups at risk of social exclusion, paying special attention to children, youth and women. Through an evaluation committee, Fundación Iberdrola España will select around 30 projects aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
In this regard, the 2022 Social Program prioritizes four specific lines of work for this call. The first focuses on projects aimed at child poverty and social exclusion, which support low-income households to cover basic aspects of daily life, and those that develop initiatives that promote education to mitigate the most harmful effects derived from inherited poverty.
The second line of work focuses on social inclusion projects for people with disabilities, supporting these children and young people and the occupational centers they attend by offering them a space in which to develop their skills.
The third line addresses health and welfare projects, which accompany vulnerable children and young people with serious illnesses and their families, as well as initiatives aimed at the prevention and/or treatment of people affected by various addictions.
The fourth and last line of work focuses on supporting women who suffer or have been victims of harassment and gender-based violence, seeking to foster their self-esteem and personal autonomy by offering them a series of opportunities that promote, in turn, gender equality.
Applicant entities may submit their proposals until June 28, through a form available on the foundation’s website (www.fundacioniberdrolaespana.org), where they can also consult the terms and conditions of the call for proposals. The call is expected to be resolved in October and the projects can be executed during the 12 months of 2022.
