Selection Criteria

This selection process will be guided by the following two criteria:

  • Support to Entrepreneurship/Social Entrepreneurship
    • The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation was founded based on the concept of social entrepreneurship which combines a financially viable product with a charitable purpose. They are convinced that this concept also exists in other parts of the world. Therefore, the intention is to support initiatives that build on and develop local entrepreneurial potential and capability. The goal is to support the creation of value chains and structures in the relevant country and thus produce independent sources of income.
    • This call for proposals is intended for organisations and initiatives, which support entrepreneurial potential in the respective countries. This could be through the provision of micro-credit, start-up loans or advice and training possibilities.
  • Support to Income-Generating Activities
    • The goal here is to support capacity building initiatives and training facilities that focus on youth development as well as further education for adults. Key here is that there needs to be a tangible, practical aspect that is directly linked to implementation of projects. The students can potentially act as “multipliers”, passing on what they have learned to others. Local expertise should be nurtured and utilized in finding local solutions to local problems. The foundation supports capacity building initiatives that create local and sustainable sources of income as well as building local resilience.
    • This call for proposals is aimed at organisations, institutions and initiatives, which provide practically-oriented courses with clear measurable impact.
