Bankia and the Foundation What Really Matters launch the third edition of the project “Stories on the Web”, whose objective is to help promote volunteering initiatives with a solidary character in favour of the ONGs, taken up by young people aged between 16 and 25.

This project takes place every year in a national level and is open to young people aged between 16 and 23 and willing to make a solidary action to mobilize in their turn other people in their environment.

The innovative ideas in the field of solidarity are awarded various prizes with the initiative “Stories on the Web”. After the preliminary phase, eight proposals have been chosen as winners and now will have to demonstrate their capacity to divulge and raise awareness through the internet. Do you already know about their projects?

Eight projects have been chosen as winners in the 2017 edition of “Stories on the web”, an initiative by Bankia and The Foundation What Really Matters whose objective is to help young people create their own volunteering and solidary projects. From between all the received proposals these eight innovative ideas have received 3.000€ to help them with their start. The second part of the project started in March 2017, when the participants where given the opportunity to raise 5.000€ for the ONG with which they collaborate if they manage to demonstrate their capacity to divulge and raise awareness about their projects. This is the so called “challenge on the web”.

What is a story on the web?

A story on the web is the story of a group of, at least, five young people who get together to mobilize and to make some action of volunteering in favour of an ONG, Foundation or Association.

Through this initiative, Bankia and the Foundation What Really Matters want to foment the social entrepreneurship and participation of young people in an improvement of their surroundings. This project is a call for action, for the young people to put in practice the universal values spread in the congresses organized by the Foundation What Really Matters and supported by Bankia.
