Early Grant Information for NGOs
Initiatives supported by the Foundation and other donors need to be implemented, promoted and further supported. This is especially relevant in the context of hybrid aggression against Ukraine, in particular, in the information space. An additional challenge remains the “infodemia” – the spread of “conspiracy theories” and inaccurate information during the COVID-19 pandemic. Responding to these challenges requires constant search and improvement of developed tools, their scaling to reach target audiences.
The purpose of the competition: promote the development, promotion and application of tools that develop critical thinking skills and counter misinformation.
