Detailed description of project Back
The EU and South Africa share a common vision that the full participation of youth can contribute to vibrant, confident, self-reliant, healthy societies. In this context, Arts, Culture, Sport and Recreation have the potential to harness youth as drivers and participants in economic and social development. The overall Youth Empowerment Programme (YEP) was signed between the EU and SA and entered into force on 21 September 2009 in an endeavour to develop new avenues of dialogue between the EU and SA including in the field of culture. As part of the Youth Empowerment Programme, the EU Delegation launches a local call for proposals in this field whilst aligning EU support with the partner country’s policies, namely the Department of Arts and Culture South Africa (DAC).
The global objective of this Call for Proposals is to create opportunities for youth empowerment in the sector of culture, to include youth as drivers in social and economic development in South Africa. The specific objective is to empower youth in South Africa to improve their life skills through arts and culture activities which will engage with disadvantaged youth, include them in organising community life and open the way for youth to make a positive contribution to local development.
The global objective of the mission is to assist the Contracting Authority – the EU Delegation to South Africa – with the evaluation process of the Open Call for Proposals (Ref. EuropeAid/131343/L/ACT/ZA).
