In 2018, in the second edition of this extraordinary initiative, the funds were earmarked to finance seven projects that responded to the objective Fam Zero, with a contribution of € 5,000 each. The chosen projects respond to the ‘Suara with the services’ (to reinvest in initiatives linked to the projects managed by the Cooperative), ‘Close to Suara’ (investing in ideas of the own territory) and ‘Suara in the world’ (betting on the transformation with international character).
The projects promoted in 2018 responded to initiatives to guarantee food accompaniment to people over 18 after emancipating or people in a situation of sensellarism, taking surpluses of food cooked in schools, generating healthy eating habits, to train farmers or to expand a garden in Senegal, among others.
