On 1 September, the Center for Democracy Foundation officially awarded grants to the selected local youth organisations via the Youth Fund - Our Voice Must Also Be Heard and the EU Balkan Youth for Europe project. 64 applications were submitted, while 14 of the best projects were selected for grant approval.

The aim of the Youth Fund is to strengthen local democracy in the Western Balkans by providing support to local youth organisations that represent the active participation of young people at a local level. Let’s not forget that the total funds of the Youth Fund amount to EUR 78,000.
