Opportunity: Water Action Project Grants - Deadline November 15, 2014

Youth want to make a difference but often don't know where to start. Find everything you need to engage students in global water and sanitation issues and give them the tools to plan and implement an action project. Wavemakers supports teams throughout the process, and provides grants for up to $500 for teams who apply for a seed grant by November 15th.

Youth have reached over 95,000 Canadians with their action projects, which have included organizing benefit concerts, installing low-flush toilets, creating a community mosaic, and more.
