Apply for a grant for your environmental project
22 March 2012
If you have an idea for an environmental project, you could receive up to 1500 USD to help you achieve it, under the FAO/WAGGGS grant scheme.
The deadline for applications is 1 July 2012.
Together with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, WAGGGS invites Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world to apply for a small grant for projects related to our Global Action Theme for 2012, girls worldwide say "We can save our planet".
Your project can be related to climate change adaptation (helping people cope with climate change) or mitigation (preventing further CO2 emissions). A food security or agriculture theme to the project is advantageous but not essential. Projects with inter-country collaboration will be looked on favourably.
Examples of eligible projects include planting trees or crops, setting up a recycling system in your meeting hall or school, or hosting a discussion in your community.
For further information and the application criteria please download the application form. If you have any queries please contact WAGGGS at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 1 July 2012.
