Both ENDS manages two small grants funds
NAME: Young Environmental Leadership
FINANCED BY: JWH Initiative.
Young people who work for environmental civil society organisations (CSOs) in developing countries often have few opportunities to develop leadership skills due to a general lack of resources for schooling, training or practical learning. By annually giving small grants to approximately 30 young potential leaders, the Initiative aims to increase their knowledge, experience and training, thus strengthening the capacity and efficiency of local environmental CSOs.
NAME: The Koningsschool fund
FINANCED BY: Stichting School van Z.M. Koning Willem III en H.M. Koningin Emma der Nederlanden.
The Koningsschool Foundation, based in The Netherlands, promotes knowledge of forests and forestry, and provides financial support to projects on sustainable forest management. Both ENDS has been advising the foundation on applications from developing countries for small grants since 2005.
