On April 16th, 2011 James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, were tragically shot dead in Sarasota, Florida.
In their short lives, both James Cooper and James Kouzaris developed into wonderful, commendable young men with a zest for life and a love and respect for the world and humanity.
The projects we are funding include initiatives to encourage young people who are outside full time education and employment to re-engage with the education system or support them as they take their first steps into employment.
