EPF is advancing Challenge:Future’s aim to develop prosperous solutions to specific corporate and global challenges in all three South Caucasus countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia). Via partnership with Challenge:Future EPF will facilitate inclusion of South Caucasus youth in a global collaborative effort uniting youth from all over the world.

EPF has been working in youth issues since early 2005, and now has a youth integration program that includes two projects focused on providing opportunities for local youth to engage as active citizens in developing their communities in Georgia. Through the Youth Bank project, EPF enables young leaders to bring fresh perspectives, energy and solutions to long- entrenched community problems. EPF increases the confidence and capacity of young people to act as viable agents for locally-driven change and builds constructive youth-adult partnerships to protect and promote the rights and responsibilities of adolescents within their own communities.

Through both programmatic activities and strategic grant-making, EPF works to build a civil society sector that conducts high quality and independent policy analysis, citizen education, advocacy and service provision, enabling all citizens to achieve social and economic prosperity. Since 1994, EPF has invested nearly $70 million in the South Caucasus through more than 1,700 grants and programs with support from the United States Agency for International Development, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the European Union and other public and private donors.
