LONDON, August 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Alfonso Galdi (Chairman of the Foundation): We have received applications for a total of over $210 million. Many of these projects deserve to be funded and I hope that as the Foundation grows so will the budget available. The quality of the proposals we have received is encouragingly high and we are aware of the responsibility this places on us
Over 320 applications for a value of over $210 million: this has been the response to the first international announcement of funding available for development programmes of World for People Foundation(http://www.worldforpeople.org).
Over the next eight weeks the Foundation will evaluate the entries and inform all applicants of the status of their application(s). Due to the large number of submissions, we will however not be able to give individual feedback to unsuccessful candidates. Shortlisted applicants will then have one month from receiving written confirmation of our interest in their project to submit a complete proposal and provide the necessary supporting documents.
With this international announcement of funding available for development programmes the Foundation proposes to contribute to the sustainable development of emerging economies through the promotion of innovative social projects which offer advanced technological solutions for improving the quality of life and economic conditions of the local population.
This project is designed to improve the conditions of pupils in existing schools in emerging countries and areas of social deprivation. These benefits are also extended to other active sectors of the local population.
