As well all know that the Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread in more than 135 countries and has already killed more than 12,000 people. In order to support the fight of humanity with novel coronavirus, Peace First is launching a rapid response grant process to help young people around the world lead projects that address community impacts of COVID-19, from providing meals to elderly neighbors to launching digital mental health campaigns to support youth feeling isolated. Rapid response grants are open to young people between the ages of 13-25, anywhere in the world, starting today.
Peace First will pre-approve grants of up to $250 for immediate costs associated with the ongoing or imminent social action project. Given health and safety concerns due to COVID-19, projects should follow guidelines from local authorities on social distancing.
