German Funded African Youth Representatives for UN CSD 17, New York, USA
Dear Collegues and Friends,
On behalf of the Youth Caucus, I am pleased to announce that after a through srutiny of all applications we come to the following decision for funding by the German Goverment, based on
a) the formal requirements that were mentioned in the application form,
b) the thematic fit of applicants' activities in their countries with the current CSD cycle's topics as well as their
c) plans to mainstream the work of CSD 17 into their daily work back home.
Eventually, the following finally emerged as winners of the race:
Female: Esther Kelechi Agbarakwe (Nigeria)
Male: Hubert Zirimwabagabo (Ruanda)
It was not an easy task to come up with these two because most of all who applied qualified but a lot more issues had to be considered.Let me also take this opportunity to thanks all those who applied and wish them success in all their endeavours. Should you have your funds, the youth caucus leadership will facilitate yor accreditation. For Esther and Hebert, you will shortly be recieving your accreditation letters, which will enable you to participate during the CSD 17th and you will also use this to secure your visas. Should you require more on logistical issues, please, get in touch with Doris Brunner (firstname.lastname@example.org). The youth Caucus leadership doors remain open to assist you.
Congratulations to Hubert and Esther!!
