The Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) is offering special grants to build capacity for conservation leadership in Mozambique. EFN’s support will contribute to training and education for individuals at top universities and training centers in Mozambique and around the world. In addition, EFN will also support registered non-profit organizations in Mozambique to conduct training and reforestation projects in areas of high conservation value in WWF priority areas within both countries.
Through a competitive selection process, EFN will award funds to individuals and organizations that demonstrate exceptional potential to improve conservation outcomes in both countries.
EFN encourages proven and promising conservation leaders to apply for these special opportunities. Please share this opportunity with your colleagues as well.
