Strengthening Fund 2018 - Biobío Call

The Strengthening Fund 2018 it is part of the Social Investment Fund axis. Its main purpose is to support civil society organizations to implement improvements in the design and management of their programs in order to optimize standards, advance the quality of their projects and enhance the impact of their interventions.

This year has a special version for the Bio bio region which will be carried out in partnership with the University of Concepción, to advance in the decentralization of our country, favoring regional processes that respond more pertinent to their realities. 

This fund promotes initiatives that propose innovative solutions to social problems related to poverty and social exclusion. In Colunga the challenges are mainly focused on: protection of the rights of children and youth; quality improvements in education; new inclusion challenges.

It seeks to attract organizations with high potential, with a degree of expertise in working with people in a situation of vulnerability, who have managed to develop interventions of social value. This opportunity invites us to participate in a process that integrates financial support, accompaniment and training in innovation and management of sustainable models.
