For 2023 Project call given to relieve the severe financially and physically challenged in Portugal.
UNITED & EMPOWERING MILLIONS is committed to helping families and individuals who are financially challenged by providing transport, life-essential goods and compassionate support services.
UNITED & EMPOWERING MILLIONS ASSOCIATION in Portugal is therefore seeking applications to support urban families in Portugal’s cities and individuals with transportation needs, or who are physically disabled, financially vulnerable, come from difficult backgrounds, are in need of help and have somehow survived various difficulties and challenges throughout their lives..
The initiative aims to address the extreme social hardship faced by urban communities living in unsafe and insecure conditions and locations, or facing eviction. UNIRED & EMPOWERING MILLIONS ASSOCIATION wants to offer these people accessible alternatives.
These families hope to receive innovative proposals that primarily address critical issues related to support with financial resources and where lack of transportation may be what prevents them from accessing a job, keeping them trapped, financially, physically and emotionally disconnected, suffering alone, unable to work. United & Empowering Millions’ goal is to create an effective improvement in the quality of life for the many families in need in Portugal. Empowering Millions aims to improve these people’s lives and transform their current situation by realizing their aspirations and providing them with transportation, food, clothing and other essential goods that can help them take steps towards empowerment, emancipation, economic security and a network of people committed to their sustainable well-being and quality of life.
UNITED & EMPOWERING MILLIONS exemplifies:
- People united and together helping and empowering people
- People united to strengthen community and the roles of individuals in building community life
- People whose words and actions are value driven, create hope, peace and bring joy.
