Request For Proposal: Sustainable Cultural Programming for Yemeni Youth Small Grants

05/02/2020
, Yemen

The Cash for Work Project aims to provide youth in Yemen with alternatives to conflict through job and training opportunities to improve their livelihoods and rehabilitate cultural heritage. Youth involvement is seen as essential for stabilizing communities by engaging them in meaningful employment for heritage and infrastructure restoration in urban centres through cash-for-work schemes.

Under the cultural programming component of the Project, small-scale grants will be awarded to CSOs in Yemen to promote social cohesion for young Yemenis and contribute to sustainable cultural development. UNESCO’s partnerships with local CSOs will also be established with a view to building local organizational and management capacities and enhancing the outreach of civil society in public dialogue for peacebuilding.

The actions to be covered under this Contract will apply the cash-for-work methodology to cultural programming for the first time to provide vital support to Yemeni young cultural operators who have experienced major loss as a result of the conflict. The assistance will help create a sustainable foundation for future employment and development in Yemen’s culture sector by presenting cultural production as a viable means of livelihoods.
