The Institute for Youth Development KULT and partners in the regional initiative WeB4YES are pleased to announce the list of CSOs supported through the WeB4YES Public call for small grants.
The goal of this Call was to improve the efficiency of CSOs in the Western Balkans in launching initiatives to improve youth employment and entrepreneurship policies at the local level. The Call is intended to build the capacities of CSOs in the Western Balkans, and strengthen their participation in public decision making, creating and implementing innovative initiatives for youth employment, employability and entrepreneurship. The WeB4YES team received 125 project proposals. Since the budget was limited to 150,000.00 EUR, it was not possible to support all the project proposals that were submitted.
The regional WeB4YES Evaluation Commission conducted the evaluation process for all the received applications, based on previously defined criteria designed to select high-quality proposals that match the goals of the Public call and meet the technical criteria. After a detailed and comprehensive analysis, 18 projects were selected to receive support in 2019/2020.
The WeB4YES team extends the warmest gratitude to all organizations who submitted their project proposals and wished them success with future applications.
The WeB4YES Initiative website has a table with the names of supported project proposals (in English).
The Initiative WeB4YES will last until the end of 2020, and is supported by the European Commission, as a part of the Civil Society Facility and Media Program 2016-2017, Support to regional thematic networks of CSOs.
