The UEFA Foundation for Children has launched its annual call to find and fund organisations which use sport to help vulnerable young people.
The invite is open to any organisation that proposes practical measures to help children, in particular in the areas of access to sport, health, education, employment, personal development and supporting the most vulnerable. The UEFA Foundation for Children will then fund the projects, which can based anywhere in the world.
Every year, the UEFA Foundation for Children issues a call for projects.
Those projects seek to achieve the foundation’s objectives – i.e. to help children by providing support in the following areas:
- access to sport;
- personal development;
- integration of minorities;
- protection of children’s rights.
In order to achieve those objectives, the foundation establishes programmes involving football or sport in general, either running its own projects or working in partnership with other entities.
The foundation may advise, work with or support any organisation or project that has similar goals or seeks to provide development aid.
It may also provide humanitarian or emergency assistance, acting alone or in partnership with other organisations.
The Board of Trustees will assess all projects, consulting with external parties where necessary, before deciding on its allocation of funding.
Decisions will be taken at the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees. Outside of that framework, the foundation’s statutes provide for the use of exceptional decision-making mechanisms in emergency situations.
Applications are invited from organisations anywhere in the world, with the deadline for applications on September 14.
