Announcing a funding opportunity for youth-led organizations and/or coalitions in Malawai and Tanzania under the YOUAccess project. YOUAccess supports youth-led organizations to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights in the Global South.
Adolescent and youth participation is critical to improving sexual and reproductive health outcomes and to achieving government commitments to global initiatives such as Family Planning 2020, in particular those goals and commitments that relate specifically to AYSRH. To support the achievement of FP2020 country commitments, PAI will support youth-led organizations to hold their governments accountable for youth- and adolescent-related FP2020 commitments. PAI is seeking proposals from youth-led organizations and coalitions in Malawi and Tanzania.
YOUAccess, a multiple donor fund, provides flexible funding that allows for risk-taking and a platform for youth and adolescent ownership of projects. Grant awardees contribute to building sexual and reproductive health and rights champions among policymakers, leaders, organizations, and individuals at national, district, and community levels. The fund offers an opportunity for innovative project development, knowledge sharing, and evidence-building to meet youth contraceptive needs.
Grants will be awarded to youth-led organizations or coalitions in Tanzania and Malawi. The grant will be a maximum of $35,000 USD and be awarded in June 2019 for a grant period of one year.
