      Dear Minu,

      I hope that all is well with you.

      I would like to inform you of a newly established fund by UN-HABITAT - the Opportunities Fund for Urban Youth-Led Development.

      UN-HABITAT recognizes that young people everywhere have aspirations, and that they are key agents for social change, economic development and technological innovation. To support youth in their efforts to improve the quality of life for themselves and those around them, UN-HABITAT created the Opportunities Fund – a fund seeded with $1 million USD annually by the Norwegian government.

      The Fund, which was officially launched at the fourth session of the World Urban Forum in Nanjing, China, will be used to support initiatives promoting youth leadership in sustainable urban development globally.

      The call for applications for the Fund will be announced before the end of March 2009 and procedures for applying for the Fund on-line will be made available on the UN-HABITAT website in the coming weeks.


      I would like to know if your organization will be able to help us  in promoting the Fund amongst your youth networks to ensure that it is advertised widely. Any suggestions that you have in this regard would be highly appreciated


      If you require further information, contact me or my colleague,  Grace Myong at grace.myong@....
      With best regards,

      Krishnan
