Youth Civic Engagement Programme: new grants

The GFCF is pleased to announce four grant supplements to community foundation partners in Macedonia, Brazil, Egypt and Zimbabwe to supporting the ongoing development of their youth programmes. Building on the success of their Youth Club programme, Local Community Development Foundation Stip plans to explore the potential for YouthBank in Macedonia, starting with a study visit to Cluj Community Foundation in Romania to learn from them. In Brazil, Florianopolis-based community foundation ICom will develop a joint programme with four other partners that connects and engages young people from all walks of life. And grants to Uluntu Community Foundation (Zimbabwe) and Waqfeyat Al Maadi Community Foundation (Egypt) will support youth programmes in the overall context of the institutional development of these two relatively new community foundations. A new grant was also awarded to Juarez-based Fundación Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte to support the further development and implementation of its Youth in Philanthropy Programme.
