Charity will help youth worldwide

Georgina Lock

A capacity-building charity has been set up to help tiny charities working with children and young people in the developing world.

Global Youth is operating in south-east Asia initially, but aims to expand its work to isolated organisations working in other parts of the developing world.

It hopes to help those not currently able to partner other large NGOs or government agencies, and will offer support such as UK fundraising, advice on building relationships with other delivery bodies, funders and decision-makers, and strategic planning.

Jo Dempster, founder of Global Youth, said: "I am alarmed at the conditions the charities work in, but amazed at the depth of their commitment."
