Doniamo Energia call for proposals

Through the evaluation of the Calls for Proposals Doniamo Energia, promoted by Fondazione Cariplo and Banco dell’energia, we contribute to the development of intervention models finalised at avoiding that disadvantaged families in the Lombardy descend into structural poverty. We do this by focusing on promoting skills and territorial networks.

Poor education, food and energy: these are three dimensions of poverty that the Fondazione Cariplo undertakes to fight together with institutions, non-profit organizations and companies, according to a model based on the three pillars: public, private and social.

The “Doniamo Energia” programme, promoted in collaboration by Fondazione Cariplo and Banco dell’energia, is one of the initiatives to combat poverty. The Banco Energia Onlus is a non-profit organization, promoted by A2A and the Foundations AEM and ASM, founded in 2016 with the aim of raising funds to support people and families belonging to weak social groups at risk of poverty.

The meeting between Fondazione Cariplo and Banco dell’energia made it possible to combine resources and skills to support people in economic fragility with paths of support and “re-start” at 360 °, first of all through the distribution of basic necessities or the payment of urgent expenses such as the bills of any energy operator, and then think of routes to take charge and reactivation, which provide for forms of work and social reintegration and to rethink resources for the community, with a view to generative welfare.

The “Doniamo Energia” program, now in its third edition, is promoted in collaboration with the Cariplo Foundation and Banco Energy, and is one of the initiatives to combat poverty in Italy. Over the course of the various editions, 38 consortia took part made up of non-profit organizations and local authorities who jointly presented multiple projects financed by the call.

Our activities
The involvement of PuntoSud is divided as follows:

  • The accompaniment to the implementing organisations aimed at facilitating the development of project ideas and the implementation of projects through a feasible and effective monitoring plan. With reference to this work plan, the following actions are inserted:
    • Helpdesk support and follow-up in progress, aimed at ensuring data collection and overcoming any operational difficulties of these activities.
  • The implementation of a system of monitoring and reporting of the progress of the program, able to systematically detect the progress of the project activities and to produce the information necessary for the periodic and overall control of the projects. In this context, sud was engagedto develop the format for the detection of results in order to ensure the project (and the program) a system for collecting the priority information in order to allow a collection of quantitative data of output and outcome. Together with this action, a complementary work of collecting qualitative information related to the implementation of the projects (deviation from the plan, criticality, elements of strength and opportunities) is also required.
  • Critical evaluation of the programme for donors, with the aim of highlighting and communicating to the representatives of the Cariplo Foundation, A2A Spa and the Banco dell’Energia Onlus, the progress of the program and the development of an overall evaluation experience.
