Africa Scout Foundation Youth Fund Awards
On 10 May 2020, the Africa Scout Foundation launched an open-call for Scout-led projects that promote education of active citizens creating positive change in their communities and in the world based on shared values.
By close of the deadline for submissions on 10th June 2020, we received 209 project proposals from 24 NSOs. We have selected 16 project proposals from 16 NSOs to receive the grant. The projects’ focus varies from response to COVID-19 pandemic to youth programme activities, Better World Framework initiatives and local awareness campaigns focusing on education and creating a culture of peace. All the shortlisted projects demonstrate an aspect of community involvement, in addition to meeting other selection criteria, including the standing of the mother NSO with WOSM.
