Are you a youth-led or youth-focused national organization with a big idea to promote young people’s right to access and use family planning services and information? Do you see a timely opportunity to support the rights of adolescents and youth to decide, freely and for themselves, whether and when to have children? If yes, then Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) can help you fund that activity through the Rapid Response Mechanism’s Youth Outreach!

The Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) is seeking applications for its activity “Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) Youth Outreach” small grants for youth-led or youth-focused national organization.

FP2020 aims to:

  • Expand access for adolescents and young people to a range of contraceptive methods by advancing rights-based programs and policies.
  • Strengthen the capacity of youth-led and youth-focused national civil society organizations (CSOs) working on FP.
  • Learn from the next generation on FP leaders about how best to support their efforts.

Categories

The activities in applicants RRM Youth Outreach project should fall into one of the following categories:

  • Non-routine training of family planning providers (for example, to train community health extension workers after a new AYSRH service manual has been approved).
