Two projects from Solomon Islands will receive first grants from Queen’s Young Leaders Programme.
These two- Youth@Work and Oxfam Australia are amongst first 17 organisations to receive a grant from The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme- enabling them to deliver life-changing work for young people across the country.
The funding will enable the two organisations to provide innovative youth-led opportunities for young people to learn new skills, secure employment and make a lasting change to their own lives and the lives of others in their communities.
Dr Astrid Bonfield, Chief Executive of the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust says a positive legacy is all about demonstrating change and forward thinking.
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme was established in 2014 by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
