In the aim to tackle educational poverty in Italy, an exciting new leveraging opportunity has been introduced by CON I BAMBINI. International and Italian grant-makers can now aim to maximise their financial contribution with access to a recently established fund, totally 10 million euro, called Fondo per il contrasto della Povertà Educativa Minorile (Fund Against Educational Poverty in Children and Youth). This fund is open to making contributions from 250,000 euros to 1,500,000 euros to match contributions from international and Italian grant-makers.  

This co-financing initiative aims to encourage dialogue between different parties, sharing knowledge and practices in the aim to fight educational poverty in Italy. Dialogue between stakeholders will maximise the impact of initiatives in Italy and raise awareness of the importance of investing in education. 

Ideas will propose effective and innovative strategies fighting poverty by fostering social inclusion to those most vulnerable and providing equal opportunity and access to education. Demonstrating in-dept knowledge of the problem, consistency among objectives, intervention strategy, required resources and suggested timelines, ideas will be evaluated by CON I BAMBINI and the Strategic Steering Committee. 

Proposals will be considered from now until the 28 June 2018.
