Pick My Project is a community grants initiative with $30 million up for grabs for local community projects. One Jewish youth movement, Habonim Dror, is hoping for a grant of $200,000 from Pick My Project to make some desperately needed changes to their base and to bring in more of the community.
Habonim Dror (Builders of Freedom) is a Jewish youth movement for kids aged 8-18. The organisation has three branches in Australia and operates in up to 15 countries.
Pick My Project works on votes from the public, encouraging people to vote for projects in their local areas, which they would like to see receive grants. Voting closed on the September 17 and successful projects will be announced in October.
