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.
New YOUAccess Funding Opportunity:
YOUAccess is a fund that 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 realizing the global initiatives such as Family Planning 2020 (FP2020), in particular 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 C’ote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Niger, Tanzania, Uganda and Vietnam to identify advocacy activities to hold their government accountable. Organizations that are not youth led but that have youth and adolescent work that is led by a youth or adolescent employee will also be considered.
Grants will be awarded to youth-led organizations or coalitions in C’ote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Niger, Tanzania, Uganda and Vietnam. Each grant will be a maximum of $15,000 USD and be awarded in October 2017 for a grant period of 1 year. Please email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
