The Global Center on Cooperative Security, the Kenya Community Support Centre (KECOSCE), and Carefronting are pleased to announce a call for proposals for small grants to support youth-led civil society organizations (CSOs) to address the drivers of violent extremism in six counties in Kenya (Garissa, Kilifi, Kwale, Mombasa, Nairobi, and Tana River) and six states in Nigeria (Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kano, and Yobe). The total funding is 240,000 USD, with a maximum award of 12,000 USD for projects spanning six to eight months in duration. Applications will be accepted from civil society organizations registered in Kenya and Nigeria, with priority given to youth-led or youth-focused civil society organizations operating in the identified areas. Eligible projects should aim to build capacity, promote partnerships, or pilot new concepts on addressing the factors that can drive violent extremism. Projects funded under this small grant program will help inform policy and programming relating to the role of youth in efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism (P/CVE).
