CHALLENGE

South Africans aged 18 to 30 have a significant skills gap.  Providing life skills, financial education and employability training is necessary to enable young adults to find meaningful employment and to grow as leaders and mentors in their communities.

The Umbrella Grants Management Project (UGM) is a five-year grants management program administered by FHI 360 with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Through UGM, FHI 360 provides funding and technical assistance (TA) to USAID-selected nongovernmental organization (NGO) partners who provide HIV and AIDS services at local, provincial and national levels in South Africa. FHI 360-UGM seeks to promote high quality service delivery in alignment with the priorities and goals of the South African government’s HIV and AIDS framework.
