The CAMY Fund, supported and administered by the Seattle International Foundation (SIF) in partnership with the Summit Foundation, is currently seeking proposals from young leaders in Guatemala and Honduras. Here at the CAMY Fund, we believe young people have the innovative ideas, energy, and passion necessary to improve their own lives. What they need is a catalyst to bring all their ideas to fruition. The CAMY Fund provides critical financial support and technical assistance to young leaders to turn those fresh ideas into reality, helping young people to lead their peers to build better lives.
The CAMY Fund is currently seeking proposals from young leaders working in Guatemala and Honduras to address the following issues 1) child/early marriage and 2) secondary school retention among girls. The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) for this first round in 2015 is February 6, 2015. Organizations can apply for up to $35,000 USD during this current grantmaking round.
