About the Organization
The Emerging Markets Foundation (EMpower) works for young people at risk between the ages of 10 and 24 in emerging markets. It supports local organizations in the regions where it works. It provides grants to organizations that work in the field of youth leadership and gender equality and that it deems successful. In this way, it enables the donor institutions to improve their programs and services and develop innovative approaches.
Studies on education, leadership and social participation, development of health and well-being to improve the lives of young people at risk.
EMpower accepts applications from CSOs that have been active for at least 3 years. It does not work with institutions that discriminate on the basis of religion, race, gender, age and physical disability, gender identity, and sexual orientation. It prefers to fund the capacity building and service-based studies rather than research and advocacy issues.
Project applications are invited through published open calls. The duration of projects is usually 12 months, but continued support may also be possible.
