Applications for Projects 2021 are closed!
Having met the deadline for the application of projects to SELAVIP year 2021, we want to thank all the organizations that presented and sent their proposals.
We are very aware that this process was very different and difficult for all due to the COVID 19 pandemic that gives us no respite and provoked that millions of human beings should be confined, as well as thousands of deceased worldwide, it has hit very hard the most vulnerable and poor and that added to the scarcity of water, overcrowding, lack of sanitation systems, unavailability of toilets and the difficulty of access to urban land due to its high value, has made thousands see the possibility to live in security and with dignity rolling away.
As every year, organizations interested in seeking solutions to the problems of the habitat of vulnerable families have presented themselves and this was reflected in the more than 600 new NGOs that registered with SELAVIP, a situation that exceeded all our expectations. For those that could not be activated, we inform you that this process will continue in the coming months to present initiatives in future calls.
Our Foundation was also affected by the economic crisis derived from the pandemic, but it has been decided to maintain the financial contributions for the year 2021 and continue supporting all the projects that must be carried out this year 2020, the progress of which has been halted by the sanitary measures adopted in each country in protection of public health.
With your work and ours, we must continue to support initiatives that alleviate poverty and inequality.
This year the number of initiatives almost doubled, reaching more than 470 projects that will be evaluated, all from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Due to the special characteristics of this year, it is expected to report the selected projects at the end of November. Any delay in the process will be communicated in due time.
Thank you very much for being our partners in the fight against inequality, most evidenced by the pandemic.
