Social Program Calls History

Fundación Iberdrola España launches its Social Program Call for Proposals, reinforcing its commitment to the most vulnerable groups. 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 each call, 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.

Social Program Call 2022

In line with the current context, the 2022 Social Program 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 violence, seeking to promote their self-esteem and personal autonomy through support and pre-employment training projects that boost their skills for real autonomy and promote, in turn, gender equality.
