We will select 50 youth organizations all over Africa to be our local partners. The application form attached hereby will serve to select the best organizations. Find attached the application form in English and French as well as the project concept note (only in French. More information in English on the Congress’ website).
If selected we will work with you to host one videoconference in French on the 3rd of August (if you are part of French speaking Africa) or you will host a videoconference in English on the 10th of August if you are from the English speaking part. Those dates are soon to be confirmed to selected organizations. We will also organize a session test on August 1st with all local partners (to be confirmed) in order to make sue everything works correctly.
Please note that we are not able to provide any financial assistance to selected organizations to host their event. We can only provide institutional support in order to assist them to fundraise in their country for the videoconference’s organization expenses. Also note that your participation in this project will enable us to include you as delegate at the next World Youth Congress.
