The King Baudouin Foundation’s Marie Antoinette Carlier Fund has launched a call for project proposals to support local youth projects focusing on education, health and water in Burundi and the Congo (DRC). Applications can be only submitted by an “intermediary” and not directly by organizations.
The financial support for each project will be between €10,000 and €200,000. Projects should be implemented only in the Democratic Republic of Congo or Burundi and must target young people and should cover the any one of the three themes of education, health or water.
“A project manager cannot submit a proposal him or herself, and should therefore make an appeal to a “nominator”.
Applications from people or organizations applying for financial support for themselves, will not be taken into consideration!”
Intermediaries are individuals. They must have sound knowledge of the political, socio-economic and cultural background, developmental challenges, etc. in Congo (DRC) and/or Burundi. They may be submitting a project butare not obliged to play a specific role in the implementation of the project.
“The Management Committee of the Fund will pay particular attention to the following selection criteria
- the extent to which the project is supported by the community and actively involves the beneficiaries.
- the ‘integrated’ nature of the project.
- the project’s potential for use on a wider scale and/or as a model.
- guarantees on project sustainability.
- the extent to which the project is open to key partners.”
The deadline to submit application forms is 9 April 2010. For more information, visit this link.
