Deadline: 5 June 2015

The Uganda Fund is accepting proposals from community-based organizations operating in Acholi and Lango sub-regions for  2015 youth livelihoods projects. The purpose of this grant cycle is to catalyze economic empowerment for youth by providing small grants to youth groups to implement income-generating activities in northern Uganda.
