Welcome to zovu.global!
- Description of Service
Zovu provides a platform where users can submit and showcase civil society initiatives and projects for public support, including monetary donations. We are a neutral platform, however, we only provide support to initiatives which are in line with the following objectives:
- The preservation, conservation and the protection of the environment and the prudent use of resources.
Community initiatives that demonstrate measurable change in terms of the protection of the environment and prudent use of resources will include for example: tree planting, biodiversity management and sustainable land use.
- The relief of poverty and the improvement of the conditions of life in socially and economically disadvantaged communities.
Community initiatives that demonstrate a tangible outcome on this theme will include for example: support for awareness raising, lifelong learning, sustainable food production and encouragement of access to renewable energy.
- The promotion of sustainable means of achieving economic opportunities and regeneration.
Community initiatives that demonstrate a direct impact in terms of sustainable regeneration will include for example: support to traditional crafts, seed sharing and small scale agriculture, women’s cooperatives, as well as recycling and reuse of resources.
Zovu does not endorse or guarantee the success of any initiatives, and in no event will we be liable for any loss or damage arising from loss of data or profits in connection with the use of the website.
