Voice’s Elimu Tuitakayo: Kenya Influencing Grants

Deadline: 26 October 2018

Are you a national organisation, network or movement seeking to influence education reforms in Kenya? Do you firmly believe that a relevant education system remains the only way to break the cycle of underdevelopment and poverty in Kenya? Can our education system be more inclusive? Do you want to influence and change public’s attitudes towards proposed education reforms? Do you plan to work with a network of like-minded organisations, individuals and/or the unusual suspects to amplify the voices of marginalised and discriminated groups within the educational ecosystem? If YES, then apply for an Influencing Grant to help realise the potential a relevant education system has to increase the employability or income generating capacity of Kenya’s majority poor thereby enabling them to be employed or be entrepreneurs in their own right mitigating the high inequality levels in Kenya.

Voice is currently accepting proposals from formally registered national organisations, networks or movements for projects spanning a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of 24 months with a budget ranging from EUR 25,000 to EUR 200,000.

  • Applicant’s project should focus on one or all the Voice target groups, with young people/youth as cross cutting;
    • Ethnic Minority and Indigenous People
    • LGBTI (Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) people
    • Women facing Exploitation, Abuse and Violence (WEAV)
    • People with Disability (PWD)
  • Preference will be given to applications that are able to demonstrate credible instances of intersectionality with at least one or two other Voice target groups.
  • Applicant’s project should also focus on improving access to social services, in particular education. Using nontraditional lobby and advocacy techniques to influence policy or attitude change within the community in Kenya on the proposed education reforms is encouraged.
