Project Description

Region: Western Europe

Country: Spain

Location: Alicante

Total Budget: $32,000

Area of Focus: Community economic development

The objective of this global grant -- that is supported by all the Rotary Clubs of the city of Alicante, and is being done in cooperation with the Agency for Local, Economic and Social Development "Impulsa Alicante" -- is to facilitate training and provide legal and economic support for the generation of 50+ years old people facing long-term unemployment that has been aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to give support by providing these people with technical assistance, training and financing so they can create small enterprises. Two working areas have been initially selected to create small enterprises specialized in:

- Welfare services

- Multiservice for edification and renewable energies

The goal is to make this global project a model for durable employment for long-term unemployed and/or people facing social exclusion.

The five Rotary Clubs supporting this initiative include:

• R. C. Alicante

• R. C. Alicante Lucentum

• R. C. Alicante Costa Blanca

• R. C. Alicante Centro

• R. C. Alicante Puerto

Funds will be used to support these activities:

- Formation, notary and registration fees

- Insurance

- Labor and tax adviser

- Training assistance

- Promotional & marketing costs

- Electricity, water costs... of the office

- Telephone and internet costs

- Contingencies

- Equipment

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
