GSP Seed Funding Competition for Fellowship 2018
It is our pleasure to announce that we have selected Vivian as this year’s Glocal Service Project (GSP) Seed Funding Competition winner, and Louis as the runner-up!
GCI’s annual GSP Seed Funding Competition provides a US$1,000 grant to an Ambassador who has developed a well-scoped and thoughtful plan. The competition serves to help kick-start exceptional GSPs and empower Ambassadors to design and implement feasible solutions towards challenges in their local communities. GCI usually selects a very strong runner-up to receive US$500, and this year was no different.
Please enjoy learning more about Vivian's and Louis' Glocal Service Projects below!
Vivian's project, "EdQuity", aims to promote understanding between students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds in Hong Kong through Discussion-Based Learning sessions and mentorship. We are so proud of Vivian and her commitment to improving access to education for all. We applaud her hard work and efforts in gathering support on the ground and touching the lives of many youth in her local community.
Funds for Youth Initiative
Louis' project, "Funds for Youth Initiative", addresses youth unemployment and poverty in Nigeria by providing start-up capital and training to enterprising young people looking to start their own small businesses. We applaud Louis' dedication to providing a compassionate and scalable solution to a problem in his local community.
Congratulations to Vivian and Louis! We look forward to watching the progress of their and every Ambassador 2018's individual GSPs, as well as following their journeys as global citizens.
