UNODC small grants scheme for sports-focused, youth development CSOs now open.
20 June 2017 – Under the Doha Declaration Global Programme, UNODC has launched a small grants programme in Brazil to support national Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) active in the field of youth development. Specifically, the organization is looking to engage CSOs that use sport as a vehicle to work with youth in marginalized communities who are at-risk of being involved in crime, violence or drug use.
The grants – which will range from US$ 30,000 to US$ 50,000 for a maximum one-year period – will support initiatives that aim to raise awareness on the benefits of sport for the prevention of crime, violence and drugs use among youth through sport initiatives, community mobilization and sensitization activities. In doing so, initiatives that seek to empower youth to disseminate anti-crime and violence messages will be encouraged.
The grants programme will be first piloted in the Metropolitan Area of Rio de Janeiro and the Federal District, Brazil, and subsequently adjusted based on lessons learned and replicated in other parts of the country, as well as in other regions, including in Central Asia and Southern Africa.
Applications are open until 17 July 2017. Further details on how to apply can be found here:
