Good day all,
Can you believe it has been already 56 weeks? Over the course of the last few weeks we have been terminating projects that have had Plato Foundation support for an extended period of time. We sincerely hope these projects continue on the same path and find a way to attract private and/or State funding. Positive in this is that we now have room to welcome new projects with refreshing ideas who support their communities in a positive constructive way.
Air Estonia project will receive their last grant of 250 Gold. They have already reapply for another month and their application will be analyzed and voted on this week.
As you can read in their report, it’s business as usual for the Chilean Aviation Academy, new faces showing up, older players graduating and as always houses to keep them all away from the rain. They’ll receive 160 Gold this week to keep up their program.
Sky Guardians Team successfully completed week 3 of 3.
The Flying Dutchman has been renewed last week and will now receive their 2nd endorsement of 200 Gold.
The eBelgian House Aid program reached its 16th week. For 15 weeks they have had the support of the Plato Foundation, which believed in their program and their cause. This week they will be receiving 70 Gold.
The Icarus project will receive their last grant of 100 Gold. The project is the longest running project that was sponsored by Plato Foundation and it is time to let it go on their own. We wish them good luck and hope it will last a while and keep helping aviators of Greece.
As the Army of Lithuania (AoL) enters it’s 15th week, it continues to have a positive impact on the community which has developed and strengthened around the project. This is the final week the project will receive funding support from the Plato Foundation (250 Gold); however the project is actively looking for support from new sources. Knowing some of those directly involved with the project, it will continue to be a great project for its community for a long time to come.
