Our Impact Report for The Year Ending 31st March 2022
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT) exists to realise the potential of young Commonwealth leaders, aged between 18 to 35, and to support them to transform their communities. We do this through providing three key elements: flexible funding, practical tools and support, and a vibrant network. Young leaders have told us that these are the vital aspects they need to be able to continue supporting and transforming their communities.
Our 2021/22 impact report primarily considers the 11 Sub-Saharan African (SSA 11) organisations that QCT has been working with substantively over the last two years.
The young people leading these organisations understand the problems in their local areas and have the right solutions to tackle them. We support their work at a tipping point when our grant can act as a catalyst for sustainable growth and impact.
In each of the SSA 11 organisational reports, you will see a summary of the programmatic impact of the organisations and the young leaders’ self-assessment of their organisations’ development. This report presents how all young leaders’ organisations have improved their financial sustainability and longevity, and thus are able to achieve greater positive social change over the longer-term.
The practical tools we offer are strengthened by the contributions of our young leaders to the QCT Network. Within the impact report document, we provide evidence of the positive impact the network delivers. We show where our young leaders are based and the thematic of their work. Our figures reveal that our network continues to develop and strengthen. We look forward to our Platinum Jubilee Youth Ventures Programme and the energy that a further 70 young leaders will bring.
We have also reported on the impact of three early grants that also concluded in this financial year. These grants have achieved positive change for communities in the UK and in Africa.
We are delighted to share our 2021/22 impact report for the year ending 31st March 2022.
