Chloé is of course still in our hearts, so we are running the « Chloé Graftiaux Passion Together » programme for a third year.
When the « Once upon a time… » book about Chloé came out, we promised to translate into something lasting Chloé’s passion for all forms of climbing, for mountains and all the sports that go with them. She enjoyed quite a few : mountaineering, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, ice climbing, hill walking, rock climbing…
All sorts of grants are available : some will favour the performance aspect, others an achievement, others will enable people to go further afield. But we have also chosen another direction. We want to highlight a youth project which puts the emphasis on sharing climbing, mountain sports, or mountian rescue, with young people in difficult circumstances. Their difficulties can be very diverse (illness, handicap, social or economic problems). The young people who are targetted by the project may be from here or elsewhere. Be creative !
Here is how to apply in 2014_EN and the rules 2014_EN. Please print them off, fill them out and send them back by email or by post (in which case please provide TWO copies of your project submission) before THE 15th APRIL 2014
PS : If any of you still wish to buy Chloé’s book, there are still a few copies available in English, and you can order them via info@chloegraftiaux-passion-together. If we manage to sell all remaining stock, we will be able to fund more grants for the coming years.
