CALL FOR PROJECTS 2024, celebrating the centenary of our founder
Once again, the SELAVIP FOUNDATION would like to invite all non-profit organizations and local communities from developing countries (that are registered in our system) to send us their housing projects, drinking water systems, sewage systems, toilets or latrines, repairs and regularization of land titles in territories with informal occupations for the 2024 call that will be dedicated to our founder, father Josse van der Rest Emsens S.J., who dedicated more than 60 years of his life to provide a roof to the poorest of the poor.
These initiatives must be creative, mainly focused on poor families in urban areas, that promote the participation of communities, that include the public and private sectors, that can also be sustainable and inclusive so that the proposal is an effective improvement of the dignity of the quality of life of the poorest and most vulnerable.
For the year 2024, considering the scarcity of sources of financing and the constant increase in the prices of materials, we have increased the amount per project and in some cases per solution's type. We hope you will be enthusiastic about this new application process, because for the right to a decent habitat and the obligation to build better cities, SELAVIP, in these more than 50 years of life, wishes to reaffirm its commitment to be part of this great chain of work with all of you.
Like last year, the process will begin on April 15 and will end on June 15. In addition, we recommend you to send the projects before the closing date, since the online application system will not consider time differences between the different continents at the time of closing.
