The Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE) is calling for solutions to create, match, or improve jobs for youth in Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and Senegal.
The CFYE is a seven-year flagship initiative by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and managed by Palladium, Randstad, and VSO. It aims to create a prosperous future for young women and men in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel and West Africa, and Horn of Africa, by supporting youth employment initiatives in these regions.
Twice a year the fund opens a thematic call for concept notes whereby applicants are invited to submit their ideas for projects responding to a challenge in a specific country or region. Once submitted, concept notes will be assessed by a panel of experts and youth representatives. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a full business case.
Once projects are selected for implementation, tailored technical support will also be made available to maximise delivery of results.
Separate application processes for Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and Senegal are open until September 4.
