Foundation for Human Rights Call for Proposals: Youth Human Rights Programme

Deadline: 2 June 2017

The Foundation for Human Rights (FHR) is seeking proposals for its Youth Human Rights Programme to encourage youth to be active champions of their own development. The purpose of this intervention is to support and strengthen youth-driven and youth-centred CSOs to achieve socio-economic rights, goals and improve opportunities for young people.

FHR is looking for youth leaders and strong youth-centred registered not-for-profit organisations working to address significant issues including, but not restricted to:

  • Realising socio-economic rights including the right to food, water, education, land and housing.
  • Human rights education with youth including international treaties, focusing on International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
  • Human rights dialogues and participation around service delivery in cooperation with municipalities.
  • Equality including, LGBTI rights and gender equity.
  • Participation by youth in developing Integrated Development Plans at local government level to promote service delivery.
  • Focus on young women through projects designed and implemented by women from marginalised and vulnerable communities to enable them to realise their rights.

In particular this Call aims to support organisations whose programmes seek to enable and empower the marginalised and vulnerable groups among youth to have a better understanding of and fulfilment of socio-economic rights as required by our Bill of Rights.
