For yet another year, Fundación Iberdrola España renews its commitment to the most vulnerable groups through the 2022 Call for Proposals. Helping those most in need, building a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable society is one of the priorities of the foundation’s Social Program. In this new edition, entities are invited to present projects that contribute to mitigate inequalities and help promote future opportunities for those at risk of social exclusion, paying special attention to children, youth and women.

The call will be open from June 7 at 12:00 noon until June 28, 2021, with a deadline of 2:00 p.m. for the submission of applications. Through an evaluation committee, Fundación Iberdrola España will select approximately 30 projects in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

In line with the current context, the Social Agenda 2022 prioritizes four specific lines of work for this call.

The first focuses on projects linked to child poverty and social exclusion, which support low-income households to cover basic aspects of daily life. As well as those that develop initiatives to promote education and reduce the impact of inherited poverty in the younger population.

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 for developing skills that will enable them to integrate into society and enter the labor market.

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 through support and pre-employment training projects that promote their skills for real autonomy and, in turn, promote gender equality.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS CLOSED
