MAPPING YOUTH FUNDING IN DIFFERENT REGIONS OF THE WORLD

In this mapping, we provide information on youth funding in several regions of the world: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Each regional presentation includes information about the main institutions and organizations in the following categories that provide financial support to actors in the youth field:

  • international organizations with operational or grant-making programs for young people’s initiatives;
  • regional organizations with operational or grant-making programs for young people’s initiatives;
  • organizations providing funding for youth projects;
  • other funding initiatives, if any.

In the mapping, we distinguish between operational and grant-making programs. Operational programs offer financial support to young people themselves, who must adhere to certain criteria and conditions outlined by the funding organization. Grant-making programs are organized and administered by entities that retain control over the funds. These funds represent a significant investment in young people, but are controlled and used by the organization rather than by young people themselves. It should be noted, however, that some organizations consider grant-making a form of an operational program.
