Partnership Overview | Objectives

Main objectives:

- To support and enable young people successfully to complete simple development projects with the minimum of financial resources and the maximum of peer/community support.
- To create a sustainable funding source to which young people can come to get simple community development projects funded and supported with appropriate advice and guidance.
- To enable sponsoring schools to reap the maximum educational advantage from their charity fund-raising and learn what sustainable development looks like in practice;
- To raise awareness of the outcomes of the World Summit for Sustainable Development and point out effective ways for young people to become involved in active implementation of them;
- To promote awareness of the Morocco 2003 International Congress on the role of young people in Sustainable Development and to provide solid evidence of the constructive role they can play.
