The German Federal Government together with the African Union (AU) have launched the first open call for project proposals under the African-German Youth Initiative (AGYI).

Eligible for funding are projects in the fields of:
- enabling African alumni from German-African youth exchange programs to act as multipliers for youth exchange and youth voluntary services
- promotion of innovative and inclusive approaches of African-German or trilateral youth exchange for skills development in line with the UN Agenda 2030 and AU Agenda 2063
- promoting innovative community-based change projects within the context of African-German youth exchange and voluntary youth services to implement AU Agenda 2063 and UN Agenda 2030.
