The Schools for Youth: Operational Guidelines



To qualify for support by the Foundation Schools for Youth a project must be sustainable. It should in the end be able to exist without support both financially and organizationally.
SfY will consider and evaluate brief concept papers requesting support. The concept paper should include a discussion of objectives, the project concept plan, an initial timeline for implementation, expected results and outcomes, a financial plan and initial year budget, personnel required, and financial support requested for the first year with estimates for up to an additional three years,  if necessary.
The requesting organization submitting a concept paper must have professional management, transparent accounting and official recognition by the local government authorities.
SfY does not provide a lump sum financial support to the project, but pays contractors and other implementers on a phased basis to enable monitoring of the progress of the project effort.
