With the launch of the joint program “Strengthening the National Strategy Bridge to Development”, the United Nations (UN) in Costa Rica and the Mixed Institute for Social Assistance (IMAS) announced the call to finance socio-productive initiatives of women from the central canton of Limón.
The contest is aimed at environmental sustainability, gender equality and empowerment ventures. It will be carried out under the modality of non-reimbursable funds, ranging from US $ 5,000 to US $ 10,000 per initiative.
Generation of opportunities
The initiative also seeks to strengthen the inter-institutional coordination of the country’s social protection system, in order to contribute to the generation of opportunities for women living in poverty or socioeconomic vulnerability.
“A woman, and even more an empowered woman, is a transformative force that can truly change and lead to sustainable development in communities. This call for financing of socio-productive initiatives is an opportunity to support development in the canton of Limón”, said Allegra Baiocchi, United Nations coordinator in the country.
