Voice has opened its first global call for grant applications. The facility supports the most marginalised and discriminated people in ten low- and lower-middle income countries in Africa and Asia. Voice is an initiative by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is executed by a consortium between Oxfam Novib and Hivos.
The first call for proposals is designed to help Voice, its potential grantees and wider community of stakeholders to learn from innovation. There exist many new, interesting and effective methods and approaches for supporting the Voice target group(s) in participating in their own governance and improving access to resources and services. For example, people who belong to more than one of the five target groups are more vulnerable to discrimination and therefore an emphasis on learning from programmes to address this phenomenon is encouraged.
Voice hopes to capture and stimulate learning of these methods so as to develop an evidence-base for future programming at national and global level.
Has your organisation, or an organisation you partner with implemented such innovations?
If yes, then you may be eligible (see eligibility test) for an Innovate and Learn grant to document, review, analyse, research and test your programmes, approach and/or methodology.
Deadline October 15, 2016.
