Regional Charity Foundation Samara Province and Fund For Sustainable Development
To address youth unemployment in Russia, IIE Russia and Alcoa Russia have selected two partner NGOs: Regional Charity Foundation Samara Province (SP) and Fund for Sustainable Development (FSD).
Regional Charity Foundation Samara Province (SP) is located in the Samara Province in Southern Russia. The goal and mission of SP is to support local citizens and organizations to overcome social, cultural and educational challenges. SP achieves its mission by offering different social, cultural and workforce development programs. Accordingly, SP will receive funds to provide a customized workforce development program for 35 unemployed youth from the Samara region. The SP internship program structure will entail close coordination with local partners and industry representatives. Alcoa Foundation funding will provide for a dedicated, part-time project coordinator who will work closely with local partners, including the local manufacturing industry.
Fund for Sustainable Development (FSD) has multiple locations across Russia. Its mission is to promote regional and community sustainable development through concrete projects addressing environmental, social and economic issues in communities across the Russian Federation. As a partner in Alcoa Foundation’s Global Internships for Unemployed Youth Program, FSD will provide customized workforce development training to 15 unemployed youth from the Belaya Kalitva region of Russia.
