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.

"We have received applications- declare the Chairman of the Foundation Alfonso Galdi- for a total of over $210 million.

The aim of the Foundation is to finance projects which assist the local populations in emerging countries to improve their social and economic conditions by providing sustainable and advanced technological solutions to everyday problems." 

The board will consider interdisciplinary projects favouring the development of information and communication technologies, heritage education and sustainable development and which contain the following elements: the computerisation of schools by supplying computer equipment; the training of tutors; the inclusion in the curriculum of courses on the use of computers, heritage education and sustainable development held by qualified teachers and attended by pupils in the school system and courses in computer basics directed at the general population.
The programme may also include support activities for example: the supply of energy to schools from renewable sources; the provision of equipment necessary for teaching activities; the provision of a water supply and sanitation; projects to ensure the school remains operational and the provision of security and safe custody of the equipment supplied.
