Selection criteria

MEASURE THE “SOCIETAL” (SOCIETY-RELATED) IMPACT. 

Demeter´s main criteria are the societal, qualitative and quantitative impacts of the programs it sponsors. 

The societal impact can be assessed by means of field data analyses that measure the social changes that the program, directly or indirectly, generates

Below, we list some of the direct or indirect benefits, resulting from the economic solutions implemented:

  • creation of employment or activities, 
  • school attendance,
  • impact of related activities to the supported programs (indicators such as vaccination programs or nutrition quality),
  • housing quality indicators.

 

REINSERTION OF AT-RISK YOUTH THROUGH INNOVATIVE ECONOMIC SOLUTIONS. 

At present, Demeter´s main area of intervention is for a better reinsertion and/or integration of at-risk youth through economic solutions:

  • funding of innovating initiatives which are about to be launched,
  • Demeter´s active strategic role,
  • no geographical restrictions, 
  • specific interest towards young women at risk. 

Since its creation, Demeter Foundation has provided direct or indirect support to more than 50 non-profit organizations, reaching an audience of several thousands of beneficiaries each year. 

Before redirecting its efforts towards reinsertion of at-risk youth, Demeter provided for many years microfinance funding in India, Africa and Latin America.
