During the pilot of the Innovation Fund in 2018 the selection process will focus on two different topics to support innovative projects of engaged young people to enable African alumni to be further engaged in their societies based on the experience of their exchange.
Funding line 1: Support of Alumni Structures and Networks
This funding line aims to enable African alumni to act as multipliers for youth exchange and voluntary service. It shall give the opportunity to build alumni structures that develop and implement innovative approaches for post-exchange engagement.
Funding line 2: Community based change projects on youth exchange and volunteering
This funding line supports innovative community-based change projects within the context of African-German youth exchange and voluntary services. It focusses thereby on youth/alumni "localizing" their exchange experiences. In doing so, the funding line strengthens innovative approaches of alumni which aim to share their experiences and knowledge in their communities.
