Ten days of Move Grants, Call becoming viral

Ten days have passed since the launch of the Fourth Call for Proposals of the WBF Move Grants, and preliminary data shows a significant interest from individuals in the Region.

Earlier this week, an Online Info Session received 57 participants. There will be two more, on March 5 and 12, with over 100 people registered.

The visits to our website and the Online Grant Application System have peeked, with over 1.000 daily visits.

Meanwhile, in social media, the announcement of the Call for Proposals went viral, with over 250.000 views on Facebook and Instagram.

All this data, combined with the preliminary data of applicants, make us believe that this Call of WBF Move Grants can become the best to date.
