Deadline: 22 September 2013

Cordaid (Catholic Organisation for Relief & Development Aid) is accepting applications for the 2013 Cordaid Healthcare Award for NGOs working for the promotion of the health of the young people. The Award provides a grant of € 10.000 to further strengthen activities in this field.3bb9cb0ae0d8085b5216a3d4d29ee47f

Youth-led Organisations, Community Based Organisations, Faith Based Organisations, Civil Society Organisations, (Non-) Governmental Organisations, and International Development Organisations can submit nominations. Cordaid wishes to put one organisation in the spotlight, which makes a difference to the health of young people in fragile areas. At the same time Cordaid also seeks to gain greater insight into how initiatives are developed and implemented. In particular initiatives that target both sexes, that support youth entrepreneurship and/or collaborate with (local) private actors.

The criteria for organisations selected are those who:

  • Display outstanding innovative approaches to promote the health of young people;
  • Are active in the above-mentioned field in one of the following countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo-Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Zimbabwe;
  • Provide evidence of substantial impact and/or success achieved in this field;
  • Take into consideration the sustainability and scaling up of the initiatives.

There will be three review rounds to identify the award winner:

The first Review Round will consist of an eligibility check (form and content) by the Cordaid project team.

The highest scoring 25% of all valid nominations received will be reviewed in Round 2 by a Cordaid Review Team, whereas a shortlist of the 10 overall highest scoring organisations will be reviewed in Round 3.

The Review Panels for round 3 will be external and composed of representatives of a variety of (inter)national development organisations with expertise in the field of health of young people.
