Bringing local issues at the local level: a LADDER project initiative
The Regranting Scheme Action of the LADDER Project contributed to bring the Sustainable Development Goals at the communities' level and all expectations were more than exceeded!
The goal of this initiative was to support local authorities, grassroots organizations and local institutions by developing local projects addressing core issues related to development education and the SDGs. In 2016 and 2017 two calls for proposals gathered a multitude of propositions and in the end LADDER supported 73 micro-projects in 25 different countries. Almost 1.000.000 people have been indirectly reached by this initiative which demonstrate to have a great impact. Supporting so many projects allow LADDER to promote different SDGs and in this way raising awareness about different issues that community can face in their daily life.
The outstanding result of this action with all its stories and people involved have been collected in the new Handbook of the LADDER Project!
Have a look at it and get inspired by their great initiatives!
