    This is timely and very good because most of the our youths are just at home struggling and roaming streets due to lack of funds to further their studies.

      Hi Agness Nyirenda,

      FundsforNGOs is a social enterprise that provides fundraising guides, resources, and the latest funding opportunities to help you fundraise better and secure grant funding. We are not a funding organization and we do not provide grants.

      Thank you!

    It is pleasing to know there are such opportunities available to the most in need of our society.

    This is something very close to my heart. I have been working on mechanism that would help me in a formal way contribute to the mitigation of extreme poverty among our youths in communities.

    I have set up a communnity Organization that I wish could be used a a vehicle to mobilize the affected people to get involved in resource mobilization for their empowerment.

    The challenges, are that to get favorable response from funders is difficulty for we are told we need to prove our past record. We are just beginning! Also the lack of capacity among ourselves.
    If there could be possibilities of linking us to those who can help us, we would be very grateful.

    Continue the good work.
