Challenge Fund for Youth Employment

We are delighted to announce that Balloon Ventures has been awarded a grant through the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE) led by Palladium and funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This grant will help support 78 small businesses in Eastern Uganda to grow and create 936 new and improved jobs, primarily for women and youth.  

Balloon Ventures is incredibly excited to partner with CFYE and to contribute to their goal of creating a prosperous future for 200,000 young women and men in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel & West Africa and Horn of Africa.

This project builds on generous support already provided through Argidius Foundation, Citi Foundation, Global Innovation Fund, IDEO.ORG and UK Aid.

We are building a sustainable and scalable model that grows local businesses and creates good jobs where they are needed most.
