World Connect is accepting proposals from Peace Corps Volunteers and Community Organizations in Belize, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mali, Morocco, Peru, Philippines and Rwanda.
The World Connect Grants are offered to Community Organizations who identify solutions to challenges affecting the health and wellbeing of women and children in their communities. Community Organizations submit grant applications in partnership with Peace Corps Volunteers to turn their good ideas into reality.
World Connect reviews, approves and funds projects twice a year with grant awards up to $2,500 for each WCG project. With the WCG Program, World Connect is creating a giving channel for mothers and other champions of women’s health and wellbeing through the support of Health Education, Nutrition, Reproductive Health, Health Services and HIV/AIDS Prevention projects. Grants go to changemakers in high need communities. The impact is direct, immediate and life changing.
The deadline to submit applications is 1 April 2011. For more information, visit this link.
