Schools and youth projects are among the main beneficiaries of a new £5.5 million government package on global issues.  Education and youth projects will receive the bulk of this year’s grants from the Development Awareness Fund, and half the total funding will provide training and support for teachers and youth workers, to bring a global dimension to their work.  Individual projects that received grants in the latest round of funding include Preston and Beyond, a series of radio workshops (pictured) where students help produce local radio programmes designed to increase listeners’ knowledge about international development issues.
