I want to encourage all Earth Charter youth activists to consider this opportunity to apply for funds.
Youth-led organizations in developing countries working to improve the lives of young people and their communities can now seek financing for their projects through the UN-HABITAT Urban Youth Fund.
The Fund will provide grants for innovative projects that promote employment, good governance, shelter and secure tenure. Only applicants aged 15-32 from cities in developing countries can qualify for a grant. Small development initiatives are eligible for grants of up to USD 5,000, and larger projects up to USD 25,000. Deadline is on April 15, 2010.
