About the program

The Grant Program is aimed at supporting initiatives, organizations, providers of social change that respond adaptively to the challenges of war, while acting in the direction of planning and recovery strategies, with a focus on qualitative changes in the region.

The context of a full-scale war determines new realities and challenges, while at the same time intensifying the processes of important social changes and the search for new innovative models.

Society in the active stage of war balances between adaptation to extreme conditions and building new scenarios for the future. This requires strong teams that can build quality knowledge, conduct analytics, dialogue and come together to co-develop and propose solutions, innovative approaches for short-term sustainability and strategic planning for change and recovery.

As part of Grant Support 2023, we received 168 applications.

39 projects were considered at the second stage of selection.

We are pleased to announce the 16 teams selected for the final stage.
