Description
In line with the aspirations of its stakeholders and the company's strategic direction, the Sofina Covid Solidarity Fund wishes to address the adverse consequences of the global Covid-19 pandemic on two key issues related to Sofina's focus sectors: specific challenges in healthcare systems and services and the digital gap in education. 1. Challenges to Healthcare Systems and Services The challenges the pandemic poses to healthcare systems globally are manifold and difficult to overcome. Related issues range from shortages of medical equipment and limited capacities to restricted access to healthcare professionals during the confinement period, which significantly increases the health risk for wide parts of the global population. The Fund will sponsor initiatives focusing on health prevention and facilitating access to the first line of care. It will direct its efforts towards populations and regions severely impacted by the crisis. 2. The Digital Gap in Education During the crisis, children across the globe are deprived of access to education. This worsens the inequalities in education outcomes for children from underprivileged backgrounds. In the current environment, digitalization is one of the solutions to bridge this educational gap. The Fund aims to help reducing this digital divide by supporting non-profit initiatives in the sector. Eligibility All not-for-profit organizations setting up a project in Western Europe, India or Singapore and which fits with the key issues targeted by the Fund, may introduce an application. The project may be led jointly by teams from different institutions, but it must be submitted by a single project leader.
