The EU-funded Safir project has launched two calls for applications for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and incubators. Both will be open from 19 May to 26 June 2020.

CSOs selected at the end of the call for applications will be in charge of the advocacy training proposed in the framework of the Safir project. Through participating in the Safir project, they will benefit from skill-building sessions and will contribute to the design of a regional advocacy toolkit for the achievement of sustainable development goals in the region.

Besides, Safir also offers incubators the opportunity to join the first regional network of incubators in Northern Africa and the Middle East. By participating in Safir, they will benefit from skill-building sessions to share their methodologies and create a regional toolkit to support innovative entrepreneurship. The selected structures will also be in charge of supporting young project leaders.

Safir is an ambitious project supporting youth and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 9 countries across North Africa and the Middle East. Co-funded by the European Union, it aims at creating an enabling environment in favour of youth participation and of the development of entrepreneurial projects with social, cultural and environmental impact. Safir is built around 3 pillars: to provide support to more than 1,000 young project leaders, to develop a regional network of organisations supporting social entrepreneurship, and to accompany the creation of spaces for dialogue between youth and governmental authorities.
