Heineken Slovakia said it believes that ethical entrepreneurial behaviour is a necessary precondition for developing a healthy business climate. The fund wants to carry out its goals via support for projects carried out by NGOs, which can submit their projects via the web site www.darca.sk by October 19. The projects will be evaluated by a commission made up of independent experts from the spheres of journalism, the social sciences, and the non-profit and business sectors. The selected projects will be announced on November 15.
