Cityzens Giving is back.
Cityzens Giving, Manchester City’s global community initiative, which supports Young Leaders around the world to change lives through the power of football, is back for its sixth year. This year we will once again be donating £400,000 and fans around the world will have the power to decide how the funding is split.
The more votes a project gets, the more funding it will receive.
This year’s six community football projects, which will be supported through funding and leadership training, are in Manchester, Melbourne, New York City, Mumbai, Philadelphia and Cape Coast, Ghana. The projects all use football as a tool to tackle challenging social issues.
Focusing on girls’ empowerment, social inclusion, safe water, connecting communities, education and providing safe spaces, the Cityzens Giving projects are all run by passionate Young Leaders, who share a combined love for football and a desire to make a positive difference.
The Cityzens Giving campaign runs until 24 December. Keep an eye out for detailed stories of our six Young Leaders and their projects and make sure to choose your cause.
