PROJECTS WE FUND
The Global Youth Empowerment Fund taps into an often-forgotten
renewable resource: the passion and energy of young people.
COMMUNITY IMPACT PROJECTS
The Global Youth Empowerment Fund provides funding to community projects, led by youth-led organizations, which aim to provide sustainable solutions to local challenges, which help advance the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The Social Enterprise Contest, in partnership with kountable, gives individuals the opportunity to receive trade financing for their established, for-profit enterprise, which helps advance at least one of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
TAKE ACTION TO CREATE IMPACT
We are always looking for like-minded partners and individuals to support grassroots projects
that are led by young people who seek to create impact in their community.
