The Youth Initiative for Human Rights (YIHR) Kosovo announces the call for project proposals within the Small Grants Program for 2017, aimed at expanding youth involvement in education, monitoring (online youth engagement platforms) and advocacy (street actions) in Kosovo. The funding for the YIHR’s Small Grants Program is provided through the Demand for Justice (D4J) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State/INL and implemented by the National Center for State Courts to support the development of robust evidence-driven demand for justice in Kosovo.
In order to strengthen the capacities of youth to become active citizens in Kosovo, the YIHR will award grants to informal groups consisting of high school students that demonstrate capacity to identify local community problems and ability to undertake concrete steps in resolving these problems.
Priority will be given to projects that involve activities related to youth involvement in education, projects that demonstrate cooperation of youth from different ethnic communities in resolving local and national problems, and projects that strengthen demand for justice and facilitate youth participation in advocacy processes.
All project proposals should include:
1) A description of the organization/informal group
2) A description of the idea you want to implement and the activities that will help you achieve that.
Both elements should be addressed in the Project Application Form and not extend more than two (2) pages.
The YIHR will award grants to informal groups in line with the applicable law. The eligibility and grant allocation are determined by the YIHR’s Grant Review Committee.
The YIHR will provide a limited number of Small Grants for projects that may be up to one month in duration, in the maximum amount of 1,500.00 USD.
Deadline for submission of project proposal is July 20, 2017.
Project proposals should be submitted to:
