Description

Description

The Asia Indigenous Youth Platform (AIYP), with support from UNESCO and the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), has established a small grants program that will enable indigenous youth (ages 18-35) to access small financial grants to facilitate their work. Depending on the scale of their projects, grant recipients will receive up to 3,000 USD to implement COVID-19 response projects in their countries or communities over a period of three months. Grant distribution will be determined by UNESCO, AIPP, and members of the Asia Indigenous Youth Platform (AIYP).

 

Over the past several decades, both UNESCO and the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) have committed themselves towards working towards empowering indigenous communities and youth. While AIPP has worked to ensure that the rights of indigenous persons living in their 12 member countries are protected, UNESCO has actively promoted the preservation and learning of indigenous cultures and languages, and it is currently leading the International Decade of Indigenous Languages. In 2018, both organizations came together to form the Asia Indigenous Youth Platform (AIYP), a network of young indigenous leaders from 11 countries in South and Southeast Asia who are committed to addressing the issues and concerns of indigenous youth in in their communities.
