…and I also received this notice of a grant program that might be of interest to some Khaldoun readers:
The Synergos Institute is now accepting applications and nominations to our Social Innovators Program, which we will be reviewing through mid-September. We are in search of twenty outstanding social pioneers who are successfully implementing innovative projects in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco or Palestine, which have helped improve conditions and the quality of life for people in those five geographies.
The program will provide professional and financial support to help social innovators transform small-scale projects into sustainable organizations that are working to bring lasting social progress to their communities and beyond. Synergos will connect candidates to our network of professionals, provide technical support to help innovators develop their social venture, and offer financial awards of USD17,000 per year for two years.
So if you or someone you know has an incredible idea, solution or approach that has the potential to effect large-scale change we want to hear from you! Please forward this message along with the attached brochure and application to your networks or those you feel would benefit from our program. For more information and to access the on-line application available in Arabic and English please visit our website: www.synergos.org/socialinnovators/. For any additional questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
