Fundación MAPFRE’s Call for + Rural Grants as part of the ESF+ framework
An opportunity to invest in the quality of life of people in rural areas
We are striving to improve people’s quality of life by helping you to multiply the impact of your organization’s initiatives. For this reason, and after having been selected as an Intermediate Body, we are launching the 1st +Rural Call to select projects within the framework of the ESF+ Social Inclusion, Child Guarantee and Fight against Poverty Program, which will be fully co-financed by the ESF+ and Fundación MAPFRE.
Through this aid we want to promote the welfare and social progress of rural areas and deprived Spain, and we are doing this via two areas of action:
- We believe in employment as a driver of personal and professional development and, for this reason, we promote access to the workforce and encourage the social and workplace inclusion of the most vulnerable groups.
- Furthermore, we want to promote the improvement of access to quality, sustainable and affordable services; including those that promote social protection systems, the accessibility and improvement of healthcare systems, and long-term care; with a special focus on the elderly and people with disabilities, among other disadvantaged groups.
We are launching the 1st Fundación MAPFRE Call for + Rural Grants within the framework of the ESF+, Europe’s main instrument for investing in people, with the aim of boosting employment, social, education and training policies in the Member States.
Through Fundación MAPFRE’s 1st Call for + Rural Grants within the framework of the ESF+, we are helping third sector entities to finance operations to be carried out in rural areas and intended to benefit one of these two areas: workplace inclusion or long-term care.
We prevent any fraudulent activity in the operations funded by the European Social Fund Plus by facilitating its detection and preventing it from occurring, by developing tools that allow it to be reported.
We also have a series of procedures and tools available to anyone who has knowledge of facts that may constitute an irregularity, so that they can report these and prevent them from occurring.
