Youth-led organisations in developing countries working to improve the lives of
young people and their communities can now apply for financing their projects
through the UN-HABITAT Urban Youth Fund. The Fund grants projects promoting
employment, good governance, shelter and secure tenure. Applicants should be
between 15 to 32 years of age and coming from developing countries. Support
will be given primarily to those working to improve slum conditions and to raise
opportunities for young people growing up in poverty. Projects encouraging
gender equality or involving partnerships with the government or the private
sector are particularly welcome.
Deadline: 15th April 2011.
