At the end of September, the Colunga Foundation opened applications for the Infrastructure Fund, which aims to finance initiatives that respond to infrastructure needs, enabling and equipping spaces for school communities and organizations that develop projects in a context of poverty.
The call, in its pilot version, was directed to the organizations belonging to the Colunga Network. The selected projects will be implemented during the year 2017.
