For 20 years, Moscow has hosted a competition for grants for non-profit organizations (NPOs) that can be used to implement social projects. During this time, the city has supported more than 2.5 thousand NGOs, said Sergei Sobyanin in my blog.

“Moscow is the capital of charity and good deeds. More than 30 thousand non-profit organizations work in our city, and every fourth Muscovite has experience of regular participation in charitable and volunteer activities. When a social project expands to a serious scale, its authors have an acute question of finding funds. And then the city authorities can become one of the sponsors, ”the Moscow Mayor noted.

At the expense of the grant, the Mentors of Russia movement organizes a series of seminars and master classes in schools. Teachers, psychologists, students will share their experience and help teenagers to better understand themselves and those around them, ”wrote the Mayor of Moscow.

He organized the project “Football as a point of contact between the interests of children and their parents.” Another winner – the center of physical culture and sports “Unica” – plans to organize training on paddleboards (rowing on boards) on a closed reservoir in the Stroginskaya floodplain. Anyone from 10 to 50 years old will be able to participate in them.
