COLLABORACTION MEANS GENERATING SYSTEMIC CHANGE TO SUPPORT POST-PANDEMIC RECOVERY
DISCOVER WHERE AND HOW WE ARE CREATING IMPACT ALONG WITH OUR ALLIES.
SUPPORTING VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES
For more than 25 years, Fundación Avina has been working with vulnerable populations throughout Latin America, including migrants, recyclers, and informal laborers, with a particular focus on women, the elderly, and children. These populations are and will continue to be severely affected, not only by COVID-19 but by its economic fallout. To address their needs as quickly and extensively as possible, Fundación Avina has pooled funds to support the following strategies.
GUARANTEEING FOOD SECURITY FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE
Together with a group of organizations and high-net-worth families in Chile, Fundación Avina has developed two strategic initiatives to respond to the recovery of livelihoods in that country.
BOLSTERING AND STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS (CSOS), SOCIAL MOVEMENTS, AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS FOR LONG-TERM TRANSFORMATIONS.
While the shocks and stresses related to COVID-19 are primarily considered in terms of a public health crisis, the pandemic’s aftermath will have a much broader impact on the global economy.
With this in mind, Fundación Avina’s response also includes long-term actions, some globally oriented, and others more locally-focused with possibilities for replicability in other contexts.
