iDove wants to support organizations in developing and implementing youth-focused, small scale projects that contribute to preventing violent extremism in African and Europe with a grant of up to 5,000 Euros per project. According to the ideas developed by the youth participants of the “Intercontinental Youth Forum”, the projects should fit into one of the two clusters, namely “Innovative Community Projects” or “Communication and Virtual Initiatives”.
Project ideas should be submitted before 21 May 2017 with the speaker of the project group copied in. In addition, a 1-minute video showcasing the project idea must be submitted. The final selection will be made in the beginning of June. The implementation of selected projects is supposed to start in July 2017, given the final approval and the signed contract with GIZ.
Upon submission all projects will undergo an initial eligibility check according to these criteria:
- Organisation: Only organisations officially registered with the authorities of a country in Africa and Europe can apply for funding. Registration documents must be provided. Please be aware that each organisation who will receive funding has to invest a certain amount of effort into book keeping and accounting. Some experience in this regard will be favourable.
- Youth: The person in charge of the project within the lead organisation must be 20 to 35 years old.
- Project Proposals: The above form must be thoroughly filled out. In addition, a 1-minute video showcasing the project idea must be submitted.
- Maximum number of project ideas per organisation: Each organisation can submit up to two project proposals in different categories.
- Budget limit: iDove supports innovative project ideas with a contribution of 1,000 to 5,000 Euro. Implementing organisations, therefore, can only apply for a grant within these boundaries.
- Time frame: The implementation of the projects must be feasible within the time frame of 1-8 months until the end of December 2017. First results need to be presentable in October 2017.
