PROJECT 3L: LIFE LONG LEARNING

Introduction

Project 3L provides opportunities for girls and young women to learn life skills so they are better equipped to reach their fullest potential in the changing world.

Background

  • The Project 3L grants are funded by the Friends of Asia Pacific WAGGGS (FAPW). Member Organizations in the Asia Pacific Region may submit one project proposal per year to the Asia Pacific Committee. The project may be conducted at a national level and or the next tier of decision making, such as state, region or province. The value of the grant for each project is GBP 2,000.
