Small grants for environmental projects
6 May 2010
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and WAGGGS invited Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world to apply for a small grant of up to 250 USD for their projects to help save the planet.
The projects related to adaptation (helping people cope with climate change) or mitigation (preventing further CO2 emissions) and a food security or agriculture theme was also encouraged, though not mandatory. Inter-country collaborations were also well considered.
Previous FAO WAGGGS mini grants have been used to take action at a local level with groups working on initiatives such as planting trees or crops, setting up a recycling system in meeting halls and schools, hosting community discussions, running 'green' activities at events, e.g. Centenary Celebration day, implementing GAT projects relating to the environment and many other things.
