How we work

The Foundation raises funds from public and private donors, companies and institutions to finance projects that are carefully evaluated by the Board of Directors. This particular work involves a series of further steps
THE PRESENTATION OF PROJECTS

SELECTION
A first technical selection is carried out by the Foundation's personnel on the base of the submitted documentation, which will contain all the information and data needed for an substantive evaluation..
EVALUATION
The Special Committee of the Board of Directors hence proceeds with the merit evaluation of the selected projects, based on a set of criteria established by the Board of Directors.
APPROVAL

MONITORING
Throughout the implementation of the project and after it has been completed, an activity of monitoring is carried out according to specific deadlines and due documentation.
