The Central America & Mexico Youth Fund (CAMY Fund) supports work in Central America and Mexico that is led by youth, for the benefit of youth. This fund gives young people the tools they need to succeed – that means funding and technical assistance with project planning, budgeting, and evaluation of results. We also help young people see opportunities beyond the immediate scope of their projects by developing leadership skills and networking with other donors and young leaders.
The CAMY Fund, supported by the Seattle International Foundation and in partnership with The Summit Foundation and other partners, is a new vehicle for donors to support young leaders as they design and implement projects that improve the lives of local youth and their communities. The Fund is initially focused on projects that advance girls’ equality and adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights, and will likely expand its scope to tackle other challenges in Central American countries in the coming months and years.
